OK so we all remember the the my dad's better than your's arguments we had at school.

I just want to tell my dad publicly he's amazing. You may want to do the same, this thread is so you can share the amazing feats of dadhood.
In the last few years alone he's.
1: had a grandaughter knocked down by car. Never complained just was there and strong
2: Had second grandaugter kicked in the head by a horse (she was literally at deaths door) Never complained just was there and strong.
3: Had daughter suddenly and unexpectedly start throwing fits (medication) Never complained just was there and strong.
4: Said daughter in wheelchair now. He never complains just gets on with it and takes up the slack.
5: Watched No.1 son (me) smash himself to hell on a motorbike and never missed a visit in 6 months of hospitalisation. Never complained and bought me a new bike to help speed my recovery. Every time I saw it I wanted more and more to walk again so I could get back in the saddle and ride.
6: Helped my mum through some terrible lung infections and bloodclots. Never complained just was there and strong.
I could go on forever.
Dad you are amazing and thanks.

I'm one lucky guy. Just wanted the world to know

My dad left my mum when she was pregnant because i was a late surprise.

But if he didn't do that i wouldn't be the man i became to day. I wouldn't have had to grow up so fast and help out my mum and learn the true value of money and working hard for what i want.

So i guess i have to look at it as a blessing. And i appreciate him for that.

You're obviously more of a man than your dad.

Man...I must be super sensitive today. That brought tears to my eyes..which are know rolling down my face.

And the person who said they never even had a dad to look up to. Man I'm sorry, but it seems you are not.

I wish, oh how I wish I could contribute to this thread. But I can't.

I look for no pity. And I do believe I'm a stronger person today for how I was raised.

My dad died when i was seventeen after a long illness. But i tell you this much. We had a blast!. We did everything together, We used to travel round when i was on school holidays in his 3 wheeled van lol, My mum hated that thing, She said it was embarrassing. She always went mad cause our kitchen was full of engine parts!. He was a respected member of the community who always had time to help anyone. He fought in ww2 in the royal navy, Then went on to work in englands cotton manufacturing era. I remember when he died i was raging with anger. Mainly because i never told him that i loved him even though i did. But he would have known that anyway. A great thread. Brings back so many good memories

Let's hope ATS is accessable in the afterlife.
Why not just close your eyes take some time and say "Dad I love you"
Thanks for the input

Cool idea

My old fella taught me to treat others as i would wish them to treat me

He taught me to think

he taught me to watch and listen

he taught me how to treat a woman by example

And he taught me how to fight properly and when it was necessary.

That's not a dad

That's a farther

Any one with the working equipment can be a farther

It takes a rel man to be a dad.

What a wonderful tribute to your Dad. My Dad is no longer with us, but he was an amazing man. I will always treasure special memories and remember him always.
