Me & My Father.


To my three sons and all children of this planet to read..............

When I was 4 Yrs Old : My father is THE BEST
..........
When I was 6 Yrs Old : My father seems to know everyone
.........
When I was 10 Yrs Old : My father is excellent but he is short tempered
.........
When I was 12 Yrs Old : My father was nice when I was little
..........
When I was 14 Yrs Old : My father started being too sensitive
..........
When I was 16 Yrs Old : My father can't keep up with modern time
...........
When I was 18 Yrs Old : My father is getting less tolerant as the days pass by
...........
When I was 20 Yrs Old : It is too hard to forgive my father, how could my Mum stand him all these years
............
When I was 25 Yrs Old : My father seems to be objecting to everything I do
............ ..
When I was 30 Yrs Old: It's very difficult to be in agreement with my father, I wonder if my Grandfather was troubled by my father when he was a youth
............ ....
When I was 40 Yrs Old: My father brought me up with a lot of discipline, I must do the same
............ .....
When I was 45 Yrs Old: I am puzzled, how did my father manage to raise all of us
............ ...
When I was 50 Yrs Old : It's rather difficult to control my kids, how much did my father suffer for the sake of upbringing and protecting us
............ .
When I was 55 Yrs Old: My father was far looking and had wide plans for us, he was gentle and outstanding. .
............ .
When I became 60 Yrs Old: My father is THE BEST
...........
Note that it took 56 Yrs to complete the cycle and return to the starting point 'My father is THE BEST '
............ . .
Let's be good to our parents before it's too late and pray to God that our own children will treat us even better than the way we treated our parents.

Hi Wan,

I am shameful to tell you, i had not been a Best father as I should coz i got marry too young. I think i make a better father now.

However i am the youngest man for the year at the moment. Thanks for the comment again.

Robert,
Isn't it that no one can be perfect overnight?
Only through experience and observation that one becomes better, that's why you are a better father now.
And I know that I've got plenty to learn from experience and from all the BEST fathers...
