Father’s Day is meaningful to me because that is when my dad and I spend quality time together. Breakfast is the first thing that we do together in the morning. His favorite breakfast is a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich with fruit punch. During breakfast, we listen to music and make our plans for the day. It is very important to speak with my dad while he is eating to make sure that he listens and agrees to fifty percent of the desires of my heart.
Afterwards, we bond by playing different games together. Our favorite is riding dirt bikes. It is a great feeling to compete against my best friend. Once when I fell off of my dirt bike, he didn’t “baby” me. Instead, he warned me by saying, “Make sure that the gas doesn’t spill out!” So, I quickly got up and stood the bike to the riding position. Dad carefully watched me until he knew that I was feeling fine. Looking back at that day, I thank God for having a father who encourages me to be a strong athlete.
There was another time when my dad and I cleaned the patio and pool deck at our house. He divided specific chores between us. We finished before long and we were able to have fun, again. Dad has a magical way of creating unforgettable father and son moments.
In concluding, Father’s Day is meaningful to me because my dad is a perfect role model for me. My dad plays football, baseball, basketball, and soccer. He is a nice and respectful person. He respects everyone. He respects me, people younger than him and older than him. My dad does it all! This is why Father’s Day is meaningful to me and why my dad is a perfect role model.
