My dad only had one eye. I hated him… He was such an embarrassment. . He cooked for students & teachers to support the family. There was this one day during elementary school where my dad came to Say hello to me. I was so embarrassed. How could he do this to me? I ignored him, threw him a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, “EEEE, your dad only has one eye!” I wanted to bury myself I also wanted my dad to just disappear. I confronted him that day and said, “If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?
My dad did not respond…. I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to his feelings. I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with him. So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.

Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own. I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts. Then one day, my father came to visit me. He hadn’t seen me in years and he didn’t even meet his Grandchildren. When he stood by the door, my children laughed at him, and I yelled at Him for coming over uninvited. I screamed at him, “How dare you come to my house and scare my Children!” GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!” And to this, my father quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,” And he disappeared out of sight.

One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity. My neighbors said that he died. I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that he had wanted me to have.
“My dearest son,

I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to your house and Scared your children. I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were Growing up. You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and Lost your eye. As a father, I couldn’t stand watching you Having to grow up with one eye. So I gave you mine. I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my Place, with that eye.
With all my love to you, Your father.

  1. I just want to say I’m new to weblog and certainly loved your web page. More than likely I’m likely to bookmark your website . You really have wonderful articles. Many thanks for revealing your blog site.

  2. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. TEEMCO LLC, an oilfield engineering company based in the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond, thrust themselves into the spotlight over the last year, signing huge endorsement deals with the Oklahoma City Thunder, The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and local CBS television affiliate KWTV, among others.TEEMCO made another big splash when they announced plans to purchase and renovate the historic Gold Dome building in central Oklahoma City, with their CEO Greg Lorson comparing the building’s positive electromagnetic energy to golf bracelets and revealing plans that included massive aquariums and the world’s largest salt crystal lamp.But as these audacious deals were being signed and promoted, TEEMCO and it’s chief executive were mired in legal and financial issues, and the troubles appear to be quickly escalating.

  4. Someone essentially help to make seriously posts I’d state. That is the first time I frequented your web page and to this point? I surprised with the research you made to make this particular publish incredible. Wonderful activity!

  5. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  6. Right here is the right web site for everyone who hopes to understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a new spin on a subject that’s been written about for ages. Excellent stuff, just great!

  7. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always helpful to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from their web sites.
