Happy Dad – A Reflection

I thought I would write a reflection titled Happy Dad…The featured image is a photo of my father and I…I was around fifteen years old in that photo…I was a teenager…My father had his problems but he was a very happy Dad…My mother and father were happy when the children arrived…I spoke to my elderly mother the other day and she told me that the doctor told her that he had potentially bad news or good news…My mother said she was ecstatic when her doctor told her she was expecting her eighth and youngest child…My youngest Brother Eamon who is an Engineer and whose oldest daughter got a full scholarship to the same University my brother graduated from for you guessed it…Engineering…I am not certain if she is also studying Engineering but I know she got a full scholarship to the same College…My parents were happy parents happy to welcome all eight of us into the world…My mom told me she had one miscarriage not two between Carmel and myself…I thought it was between Leo and myself but it was between my sister Carmel and myself…I found out that I was born in the night time so in the wee hours of August 1st 1972…I have lacked confidence in myself for many years then I met someone very special who helped me to build more confidence in myself…So I socialize more often now…I was out for a quick snack before I headed home and met a delightful fellow who was wearing a hat that said “Happy Dad”…I loved his hat because I had a happy father so it resonated with me…I asked him if he was a Dad and he looked at me and said he does not know yet if he is a Dad…I asked him if he was married or in a partnership and he said he is single…Then something odd happened he ordered two drinks one for himself and I presume the other was for his delightful mother who was present and stated that she is a happy mother…I had already announced that I am a happy mother of a teenager…While he was holding his tall glass of beer the glass broke in his hand…He was holding the glass gently so this was very odd…The good news is besides getting beer on himself he is fine he did not get a glass scrape…This is a sign this man will marry the mother of his child…Whoever that woman is…This man is meant to marry and he will be married fairly soon…Breaking glass or broken glass is not always a bad sign…In this man’s case he will marry the mother of his child…He seemed quite worried about whether or not he would be a Dad but he is happy with the idea of becoming a father…This warmed my heart because in this man’s eyes I saw love and joy at the idea of becoming a Dad…His mother was lovely and the two went to their table…I thought I would share this post because life is about family and life is about love and being happy to be a parent…I dedicate this post to my mother and father who raised eight very inconvenient children…I am their number five…Cheers…As always as my way of saying thank you for your follows likes and shares enjoy more YouTube Stuff and meet my 100th Subscriber the delightful fellow who hopes to become a Happy Dad…Yes this dude subscribed to my YouTube Channel…Life is good life is great and parenting is an awesome journey for those of us lucky enough and blessed enough to become parents…
