Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
The importance of dad cannot be overestimated. They are the reason we are in this world of glamour and fame. His existence today is a precious gift from God to us. But being a great dad, like all things worthwhile , takes a lot of time energy , planning and help.
I can hardly believe it. I still try to remember the day I had come to the world and you would have graced me into your arms and loved me , kissed me and cherished a lot about me. Today you have turned old , It just sounds so old but my Dad is anything but a piece of gold to me .You are a giver and if I could define you my Dad in one word it would be generous. You were generous with time, talent and wisdom .You were always there and will be there for me I know that, and also for everyone in the family.
The best thing known to me about my Dad is his hard work, loyalty and honesty. I have to be very careful to ask him anything. Coming to the hard work, even at this age he is a perfectionist of what he does. He can change any situation by putting the more and more of his hard work. One thing I cannot forget about my Dad is his supports and positivity which he had bought to our lives which I would love to implement in future in my kids. One thing which I don’t like about my Dad is his generosity towards people. Sometimes it’s very pleasing but sometimes you feel jealous that other people are stealing your part of love. Sometimes he is strict, very strict too. Due to that strictness my career is very successful and life is more easy which I realized later.
On the concluding note I would like to tell the nicest thing of having a wonderful Dad is in any step of your life if you are discouraged or afraid of anything just remember his one line ” I AM THERE BEHIND YOU” and you will find the courage to face any difficulties of your life. For all these things I would like to thank you Dad. Love you Dad.
