I don’t mean to be Mean, but as we were having our father to son lie down talk the other day I noticed that he isn’t so big anymore. ….”I think I can take him”, was my first thoght. NO! I told myself stop thinking that, we’re family and I love my dad……but just in case…NO!. Anyway I think I could protect him or my Mommy if I had to. Well I would protect my Momy, my dad…I think it is his job to protect me, so I would get behind him. Don’t worry dad, “I got your back”.
So as the world around me shrinks, the counter tops, the table, the rest of the furniture, the bed, the front porch, the cars back seat, and my dad, I am left with this “Gulivers Travels” feeling. Am I on my way to “liliput”? Should I bottle and sell MGH ,( Mastiff Growth Hormones to professional athletes? Will we need a bigger car? House? Bed? Dog dish? Planet? Soon it will be’ “Meet my little friend…he’s my dad”. But I will always treasure our lie down chats.
Life Lesson: No matter how big you get or think you are, always treasure time with your dad!
