Joining in for another week of Answer Me This, Father's Day Edition!
1. What's the best thing about your dad?
Um, I'm not sure how to pick one thing. That he's an all around awesome and genuine person?
2. If you've got kids, what's the best thing about THEIR dad? (If you don't, feel free to substitute your grandfather or another father figure.)
No kids (though the Hubs is really great at taking care of, playing with, and cleaning up after the dogs, I do know dogs are not kids), and I don't remember much about my grandfathers, both of them passed away before I was 8 (though I have on good authority that I was my maternal grandfather's favorite grandchild). I have been lucky to have a number of priests as grandfather figures in my life. My parents have always been lucky to have elderly priests who need a place to go find them, They've all been really wonderful to grow up with and learn from, I'm so glad God has blessed us with them!
3. What's the best advice your dad ever gave you?
My dad is a man of few words, but has always led by example. He has always been early to rise (I'm talking 3AM early), early to sleep, is the hardest worker I know, and puts his family first. He's incredibly generous, though he never says a word about anything he does, and is the last to complain about anything. All things I try to emulate (with varying measures of success) myself.
4. What's something you have in common with your dad?
As far as my family goes, I tend to be on the quieter side like him. I also like to think I've gotten some of his dry sense of humor. I'd really like to think I have some of his logic and wisdom, but that may be stretching it.
5. What's the manliest thing you know how to do?
I do love to grill! I can also fix some toilet issues and know my way around a power drill, haha.
6. Who is your favorite fictional dad?
I'm totally blanking on this right now. I will say my least favorite is Ted Mosby from How I met Your Mother (all due to the finale, no, I'm still not over that).
That's all I've got for you today! Head on over to Catholic All Year for more!
