I want to thank all Father's that try to be good Fathers. My husband has been a good father for 22 years now. He helped steer the children to be outstanding adults (I am prejudiced).
My Father raised 5 girls, he worked in the Copper Mines of Copperhill, TN. I always say, "there was copper in them thar hills". He would ride a skip into the ground 3000 feet below the surface. They would dynamite the ground, then send it to the surface to be processed into copper.
We would all be concerned of the mines collapsing or tragedies that do happen. He saw some accidents and he tries to not think about them now. He is one of the few copper miners that is still living.
We always take it for granted, when our parents work hard, until we get older and realize it. Be appreciative of your Fathers that try. They are not perfect, but if they tried, that is great.
