I just got a taste of what it’s like to be a DAD over the past 6 days. Gosh! It is difficult! I’m sure all you parents must be laughing your head off to read this! *grins*
I’ve always loved kids and for some weird reason I’ve always wanted to have some of my own for the longest time. Strange thing for a guy to say huh? There’s just something about passing on something about me to my own flesh & blood that warms my heart. Having said that it sure isn’t easy … having to take care and pay attention to 5-year old Daniel & 9-year old Jonathan was not easy. Having to stop them fighting and to just love one another was a daunting task. For the most part I was succesful I guess but there were a lot of times where I had to be stern which I didn’t like doing one bit. Sigh …
Both K & YM’s boys love me to bits and it brought a tear to my eye when they prayed a bit for me today just before I left for Phonm Penh to catch my flight. I started missing them 15 minutes out in the car … sigh … anyways to carry on with the point I wanna make today; kids aren’t just there to entertain us, having children adds so much more to life and I hope one day (when the right girl comes along) that I’ll be blessed with a family of my own. Right now I guess I still got a looooong way to go to learn how to take care of myself for starters.
