The Love and understanding of a Father

Contributor: Cadmonkeyslc Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Looking back through time, its interesting what you learn from moments you wish you could do over if you had a chance to relive them. This is one of those moments for me that took place just prior to the passing of one of the best father's a kid could ever have. On this night of learning, I was asked to stay home with my Dad who had just returned home from the hospital. He had a tube hanging from his lung draining into a bag held in the pocket of his robe. having difficulty breathing, the family was trying to do what they could to make his stay at home as comfortable as possible. My staying with him was so post to be one of those things I was asked to do to help him out. The night in question was for me a "mutual" night and my scout troop was planing on going swimming, and I got the call from one of my friends asking me if I was planning on going, I told him with disappointment in my voice no because I had to stay home with my dad. Well, my dad overheard the conversation and told me I could go if I wanted to, but i told him mom had asked me to stay with him, and he told me to let him worry about mom, and to get my suit and catch a ride. Well I caught that ride and had a blast with the troop that night. Little did I know how short the time was I had left with him. After his death, my mom and others of my family would sit around in the kitchen talking about all the things we wished we would have done to maximize the time we had left to spend with our father. Tears pour from our red eyes freely, and tissue was passed around like candy, but what a special moment those crying parties were for me. Being able to release my regrets, and knowing I wasn't the only one feeling that way was therapeutic for me. Knowing my dad never held that poor decision against me, and seeing him put my selfish desires above his need, drove home to me that he was, and is a man who knows what love is. Your wondering how I know he doesn't hold it against me, and I'll tell you, it's because I saw his love demonstrated throughout my life by how he treated my brothers and sister, as well as everyone he came in contact with when I was with him. I thank Heavenly Father for a Dad I could depend on, and a dad that would show by his example what love is. Love Scott.
