The Men in my life

June 21st, 2009 by Rose DesRochers · 6 Comments

My father passed away when I was eighteen. Within the last years of his life, I remember his determination to fight cancer. He lived each day with a reborn faith in God. One that I never understood until my mother took ill.

Though he’s not here today, so many times I have heard his voice saying, “I told you so.” Why is it we never realize our parents were right until we are adults? I’d love to go back and kick my 18 year old self and most of all to tell my Father, I’m sorry. But there is no going back. You can not change what has been done and time missed.

Now that I’m a grown woman with children of my own, I see my father in a different light then I did when I was a teen.

If there a reason for me to smile today, it is for the memory of a strong man- one who wanted the best for me- the man who gave me life. I love you Dad.

While my Father gave me life- my husband saved my life. If it were not for my husband I don’t think I would be here writing this blog post today. I cannot picture my life without Shawn in it. He’s a wonderful husband and a loving father.

Some women are blessed with the love of one good man- I have been blessed with having the love of two loving men in my life.

To my male readership who are fathers, I wish you a Happy Father’s Day!

    Very nice post especially these lines “If there a reason for me to smile today, it is for the memory of a strong man- one who wanted the best for me- the man who gave me life. I love you Dad.” I wish to you a good life with your husband and your baby..The women who are thinking like you deserve the best…

    Beautiful sentiments. I lost my father 4 years ago and I agree. We too often don’t appreciate them until their gone.

    Not so long ago my father at a fatal heart attack, but I never really was close to my father up until then… but I ended up becoming closer with him. I have learned to not take things for granted because lives can be easily too away unfortunately.

    I’ve been lucky enough to still have my father in my life. Even though he isn’t my biological father, he still raised me since I was young and he’s been there for me whenever I needed him.

    Great post, Rose! I wish you and your family many more happy years, and I hope your kids feel the same way about their dad as you do about yours.

    Treasure what we have, and the loved ones too. For we never know what lies ahead of us, and how long we will be having them in our lives. Pray for your family Rose. Take great care.
