for Father.

Nearly a month ago, i had nightmares and fears that this day would be sadder and emptier. i feared that i wouldn't be able to exchange book discussions, movie criticisms or converse about anything under the great blue sky with my dad anymore. i always feared the worst, and good thing it wasn't realized.

My father, ensured my future. he worked his bum off abroad to secure what i am today, he selflessly worked from 8-5 and then worked as a father to ensure quality time with me, mom and my brother. i am not a very expressive person, heck, my mom was just telling me earlier to greet dad "happy fathers day" personally earlier, but what i cant say verbally, i try to put into writing and words (but ill still try to greet him later on). i know that a simple greeting will never compensate that which he has endured for all of us. that is why i rather write everything here (and publish this in his FB page later! haha). 

so dad, thanks for everything. thanks for the times when you physically manifested despite work to watch or support me during contests in school. when you spent countless of riyals (oman currency) for me to learn tennis and piano. thanks for the times when you gave extra allowances knowing that i never save and am always in the hunt for more cash. thank you for the things that you bought for me, even if it is impractical and not that important, but despite my insistence and disgusting perseverance you and ma gave in. thank you for giving me a good life and now, making me feel very lucky and special compared to others. thank you for ensuring me with quality education despite me getting low scores and even failing some subjects. thank you for the vote of confidence and the belief that i can be someone great in the coming years. thank you for all the advices that you gave to bring me back to reality when i am floating in fantasy. 

Thank you for being you, the person who works as an office manager for the heck of it, but is successful in his career as a Father.  even if i dont say it as often as everyday, you know that i love you and am super proud to have you as the perfect role model, and the father that one could ever wish to have.

Dad, being my training wheels and support even in the simplest things

Happy Fathers Day - Federico Romero , i love you!
