Do you remember the time Mom reprimanded you for some mischief and sought comfort from your father?
At home, since we were little, we have always had allies. If we didn't like our mother's prohibitions on us, we immediately ran in desperate search for approval. Maybe from dad or grandfather, the close uncle, our older brother or maybe, just that someone else who calmed us tantrums.
That person, my father, the one who knows how to calm my 'tantrums', it teaches me a lot and that's why I admire it. The first time that ‘Lalo’, our puppy, died, I was 5 years old and did not understand what had happened. I was just crying. Dad taught me that life is a cycle, where one is born, lives and at some point has to die. And what always stressed to me was the life process and the legacy we left behind.
He told me that life can be wonderful if we know how to value it. And that respecting the living beings around me was the key to maintaining a healthy coexistence. How? Well adopting custom and Healthy habits that show the respect to others and to the nature. That's what he taught me.
Years later, I went on vacation with my family. My mother, father and brother were on a beach in Valencia. Sadly we saw the excess of plastic waste that covered part of the shore. My father, always teaching by example, got up and encouraged us to clean up the seashore that afternoon. He told us: “Instead of worrying, let's take action. So more people will follow us. " And yes, more people joined us to pick up trash. That afternoon at the beach was incredible.
Today, I teach these teachings with love and respect and I want to thank you for the infinite. I have ideas and I know he loves little detailswhile they are tools and respectful with our environment.
He is coming Father's day And I just want to celebrate him, for being the way he is and giving back all the love he sowed in me.
Happy day Dad!
