Lakshmi thought her father was the greatest man. She adored him to bits. The father-daughter bond was created as soon as she was born. From the time she was young, she was struck by his aura. He was the wittiest and greatest father, she thought.
Did you know that it is hard for an adult to come to a child’s level and interact with them? Well, he could do just that… just by magic, he could become a small child and entertain her for hours.
He taught her how to bicycle and how did all the work of running behind her when she was learning to balance on the wheels. That was a lot of work… running behind a school kid on a bicycle who is forever ready to topple and fall – but he did it all the same! He stood by her in all her difficult times. He would attend all the PTMs at school with sincerity. If her grades ever slipped, he never reprimanded her for not getting good grades. Instead, he always taught her how to approach the same problem in a different way and solve it.
School admissions, college admissions, college projects – he would be there to see her through it all!
He always taught her life’s most important lessons. As she grew up, he taught her how to dress up well, be smart, study smart, and to be a totally “out-of-the-box” thinker. He always wanted her to be “smart” and “independent”!!
He was a terrific orator. He could keep her and all her friends spellbound with his talks and witty anecdotes.
Are you nodding your head and thinking the same thing(or similar things) about your father too? 🙂
No wonder there is a saying “No one can love a girl as much as her father”!! Fathers are great – whether they are fathers of daughters or sons -aren’t they? 🙂
What is your father story? How was this quote about fathers?
