 Dad. My father worked for thirty-five years at a job he never really liked because he had five kids and it paid a livable wage. When I was in high school, he was offered a more exciting job, but I threw an absolute conniption fit over leaving my high school and my friends. My dad never complained. He just said que sera sera. I asked him a few years before he passed away if he regretted having kids, because obviously we held him back. He said he only had one regret in life and that was he always wanted to prove that money wouldn't have spoiled him.

  2. That is so touching. He sounds like he was a wonderful man.
