In honor of my dad’s birthday today, I decided to dedicate this post to my idol. He has taught me nothing but to be kind and respectful to yourself and others, to dedicate yourself to work hard for what you want, and to not take things that are given to you for granted. My dad and I are very alike. We look like each other and have the same habits, but he knows his limits to things and I don’t. He’s a hardworking man but also a party animal. I’m surprised to how he manages both. My dad and I share a very special bond that I feel I don’t have one with anyone else. Everyday I learn something different from him about what to expect and what to avoid in life. I wish to be like my dad when I get older. I’m glad to have him as my dad and I couldn’t have asked for a better one.
