“One father is more than one hundred schoolmasters…”
Growing up, my father was a military man, just like many men in our Hampton Roads area, he often missed out on my childhood because he was stationed away from our family. When he was home, he raised us to have a strong work ethic with his military style of parenting. Each night at dinner I could count on him to ask me how I served our country that day. I am grateful his pride in America and values flowed over into our daily lives.
Father’s hold a lot of responsibility and often feel that they carry the weight of their family on their shoulders. My father was the financial provider throughout most of my childhood for my family home. He provided us will well-stocked cupboards and a comfortable lifestyle — but, above that, he gave me the designer jeans I couldn’t bear to live without, my first car, my wedding, and of course the summer beach house, my happy place to this very day.
As a middle child and the oldest daughter, I am my father’s professed favorite. He says I make the best cup of coffee in the world. (Which, I do!)
