I, Father

Published June 17, 2010 4:05 PM by Jason Marketti

Being dad is a gift I enjoy.

To my children, I am a doctor although I have not attended medical school. I am Superman without the cape and am the ultimate adventurer, an entertainer and storyteller all rolled into one.

I am the one my children come to for money, candy and expensive toys. (They know mom has more sense to say, "No"). I am also a sucker for animals. In our home we have had cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, fish, a turtle and almost a pot-bellied pig. The owner came forward the day before I was to get it.

My children follow me and my harebrained ideas and enjoy every minute of it, and for that I am grateful. Recently we have taken over the family dining room table to build a Lego town (I am an avid collector). This will last until mom says we need to eat somewhere else besides the floor.

As I talk to male patients and listen to how they grew up and raised their children, I realize how similar dads are with family even though generations separate us. I would also like to thank my father for the fun times, the laughs and also for the learning opportunity on how to be a dad to my own children, because there are no books for us.

Jason, I am so very proud of your accomplishments and that I'am so very pleased  that I had an influence in your life so that you are successful in your everyday endeavors. You are a wonderful father. For all that you have done I am a very proud father and grandfather. Always remember  to be a master of fathers one does not have the Losel Award in their possession.
