Inspired by smellmyfeet's question earlier...|
For those of you who have a good relationship with any father in your life (be it your dad, step-dad, grandfather, uncle, husband, etc), what makes this person a good dad? What do you especially cherish about your relationship with this person?
My answer: My dad worked his ass off to take care of us when we were younger. He was in the Navy, and would go to school at night so that when he retired from the Navy, he would have a job to support us. He's honest, loving, intelligent, and has a great sense of humor. He's also really blunt, which can be both good and bad. Over the years, I've appreciated his honesty instead of getting emo over it, and have found that his advice is helpful when I finally started listening to it. He is a keen judge of character and has helped me analyze situations that I didn't have a lot of experience in. He does a lot for me. I really enjoy the time I spend with him when we go running together. I've been running with him since I was eight, and I miss it a lot now that I'm in college and have lazy-ass friends who don't do any form of physical activity.
