As a little girl, I wanted my dad to bring me everywhere so I could show him off to my friends and teachers. I always knew my father was a gem and I wanted the whole world to witness how bright his shine was.
My gift to you all for father’s day is these 5 life lessons I learned from my dad, AKA the greatest man in the world:
1- Love is act you practice everyday: my dad would work all night as a baker and then come home at 6 AM to make my brother and I breakfast before we left to school. Every single day, he would give us the royal treatment and go the extra mile, with fresh cut fruits, pancakes, croissants, eggs. I grew up with a man in the kitchen, who cooked everything with an extra dose of love.
2- Live life to the fullest: My dad was a very hard worker, but he knows how to have fun and enjoy life. We would host huge parties at my home for all of my parents’ friends and family; he would water ski in the summer, hunt , fish and ski every winter. He shared his love of the outdoors, and a life lived to the fullest with us.
3- Laughter is the best medicine: My dad is still the funniest person I know! He makes me laugh like no one else! He's humor is very unique, and I think it’s his fountain of youth. He always knows the way to turn every situation around and find the positive. He's the life of the party on any occasions.
4- Be kind to everyone: From his family ,his employees, or strangers in the street, my father always has a helping hand extended, and kind words for everyone. His heart is so big, there is room for everyone. Even my friends became friends with him and give him a call once in a while.
5- Prince charming is real, ladies, so don’t settle for less! My father set such a high standard for me, he is such a loving husband and devoted father that I knew what to look for in a man, and married the love of my life, who is just as outstanding a person. My daughters have the same adoration for their dad as I do for mine, and it’s beautiful for me to recognize that in them.
There is so much more to write about such a grand person, but I’m happy to share a bit of him with you on this special day.
Bonne fête des pères, papa! Tu m'inspires à devenir une meilleure personne tous les jours. Je t’aime de tout mon coeur!!!
