What I Love About Dad

Dad the Problem Solver

Posted about Bruce Norman by Sue Sheppard on Jun 14, 2014 | 2 comments

My dad was a problem solver. The kind of person who made you feel secure. Toaster not working? Radio on the blink? No problem. Dad could take things apart, tweak an offending component and have things working in no time. Need a backdrop for your neighborhood roller skating show? Dad was the one who could point out the sheet and paints and help with designs. Start a fire in the caravan? Dad would heroically appear out of nowhere and take control....

Stop and Watch the Sunset

Being Father’s Day, there’s probably no better time for me to honor my dad and share a few lessons I’ve learned from him over the years. I couldn’t ask for better father, mentor and family leader over these past 35 years, and I hope I can be as good a father to my two sons. So, without further ado, here are a few lessons he’s taught me in one way or another (in no particular...

Through it All

When my dad was just a teen, he lost his father. My grandpa died suddenly, and my dad had no chance to say goodbye. When reminiscing on past memories, I can tell it is often hard on my father. He misses his dad and would have liked a better relationship with him. However, my dad tries to do everything he can to do things differently this time around. He strives to have a wonderful relationship with me. He laughs with me, encourages me, motivates...

Why my dad is my hero

My dad is hands down my hero. For many reasons but notably his strength, faith, and perseverance. My dad is the smartest person I know, not only because he is committed but because he never gives up. My dad grew up in the small town of Marietta, Ohio. Not many opportunities are available there leading him to know that he had to rely on himself in order to achieve success. He thought that the University of Miami was undoubtedly the right choice...

My Super Hero

My Super Hero

My dad is a super hero. His love stretches farther than Elasti-Girl. He is more caring than Superman and his bear hugs are stronger than The Hulk. When I was young, my dad and I would walk down the street hand in hand and as I got older, he understood it was no longer “cool”. Every time I fall, my dad is there to pick me up, and when I am standing tall, he is always nearby. No matter what I do, my father is there to support, encourage, and...

Fix It All Daddy

I love my father because he is the TRUE definition of a MAN & FATHER. I am 38 years old and my daddy will even bring me lunch at work. Oh and my daddy knows how to fix everything. One day I called my daddy and asked him if he could come over the next day and fix the holes in walls. This man shows up the next day (literally) at “the crack of dawn”. I was like, “Is he crazy?”. It was so early in the morning. So since he...
