The epistle below, is the direct opposite of the link above..

For some of us, our fathers have been a great pillar and influence in our lives, through the foundation of discipline they laid..

For me specifically, my father never joked with our education, he so valued education that he would rather respond positively to child A's educational needs than child B's other needs..

I really appreciate him now for all those days he scolded/reprimanded me, whenever I go wrong (you know sometimes as a child, you are wrong yet you don't know, thinking they hate you for no reason cool ). I tell you, if not for those strong/solid measures he placed as a yoke upon me, only God knows what would have become of me. That's why, when people talk about addiction, especially to harmful substance, I can't relate, all thanks to my dad..

Another thing is, I got to understand (or at least have an idea) about God's love, through my dad. Was the shouting, whooping of my ass, punishment, etc not there? Of course yes, it was! As I grew, I knew the difference between being chastised for a wrong and wickedness..

Also, my father married only my mother. Although, I wanted to abolish this by marrying more than one woman (majority of our ladies, just the biblical wine, are turning into something else these days. The best way to correct/contain them without stress is by adding to them), but my father's legacy of "one man one woman" must stand..

Another thing I like about my father is that, he doesn't take advice from any of us ( it's common and normal with most African parents smiley ), but when he begins to sense wisdom and what you told him initially, coming to past. Next time, he would listen, lol..

In conclusion, by God's grace, I will make sure I uphold the wonderful things I learnt from my dad, pass same down to my kids cool..

Written so much, let me stop here...

Generosity, I've never seen such kind of man so generous and caring to a fault

His listening ears is top notch, he always have solutions to your problems and very rich in wisdom

He appears very tough but has a golden heart

I wish to take after him on these qualities.

While dollar keep the vibe ''Rise'' going..
Even if he never plenty, is a must..

*That zeal to see his children succeed, he want all his children to be ahead of him..
You are safe with him, he will never mind to risk his life for the safety of his children.
Education minded...

Papa no worry more gifts and blessing on the way coming....

I don't have anything specific to mention about my father. He is a malevolent person. He chased us from his life two decades ago. I wouldn't follow the same path as he and abandon my wife and children. The only father figure I acknowledge now is the one seated in heaven, the "I am that I am."

Workaholic. My dad liked to work. At a time he was doing two jobs and when he retired from govt work, he picked another job in a finance and stock broking firm and worked till well over 70 yrs +. Now, I have that habit. I can't do without working and I still do other legit side hustle.

Another thing is, he had the habit of buying chassis products. He never bought a second hand or fairly used products and I picked that habit. I detest second products, no matter how clean it looks.

My dad was an enjoyment minister and I took after him. I like to enjoy myself o. grin

Not bothered about having too many friends, doesn't care too much about parties, women and alcohol.

Intelligence. He was so vast and wise in speech and thoughts. Because of him, I maintained straight As and Bs in school. He instilled knowledge and brilliance in me. I'm grateful for these at least.

Nothing else I can think of.
