We do a weekly newsletter that we send out by email to all my family. In her contribution to the newsletter, my mum made mention about my dad and his work.

My dad works in construction and when he started with a new company earlier this spring, he was made project supervisor. In his new position, he oversees an entire project from start to finish. It is a lot less physical work for him, and as he gets older, the less physical work, the better.

Their current project is completely redoing a lecture hall on the campus of BCIT. The project includes everything from cement to walls to carpet.

The project deadline is in roughly a week and my dad has never missed a deadline. Unfortunately, some of the workers aren?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t producing the work my dad expects, so he has been spending many nights lately putting in overtime to tidy up the work. Last week, he put in 74 hours?¢‚Ǩ‚Äùthat?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s more than double my regular workweek.

My dad?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s an amazing guy. Not only has he taught me to work hard, but he?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s also taught me to do a job right.

Here?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s hoping they meet the deadline.

One thought on “My Dad The Hero

  1. When I read this I went and got Dad who was working on several hours more of paperwork and I said you have to come and read something (sorry if it was meant to be a secret from him)that Kim wrote about you. So he sat here and read it then when he got to the last paragraph this weird noise came from his throat and I knew he had gotten choked up.. Of course I pretended I didn’t hear it lol. That was a very sweet thing you said Kim. I think as parents you never really truly believe you ever made a difference in your kids lives.
