The reason Father’s Day means something to me is because my Dad works five jobs. Even though he works five jobs, I always come first to him and he’s always doing something for me.
My Dad is an office man, a construction worker, a TV show host, a tennis player and a tattoo artist. He does all those things for me.
Dad always lets me know I come first to him. If he wanted something so bad and he only had enough for one thing, he’d forget about himself and buy me what I want. Once he wanted a new lawn mower for months. It cost nearly $700. But one day, I told Dad I really wanted a new phone. He gave up the lawnmower to get me that phone. Dad likes to give me surprises. Every day my father shows that he cares about me. He really deserves a day all about him.
When I think of my Dad, I think of the five jobs he works to take care of me. I think of a man who even when he really wants something, he’ll give it up for me. He’s a great dad and I would do anything for him. That’s why Father’s Day means something to me.
