Father's Day 2020
Father, Dad, Papa, Pere, Padre, Otosan.
How you address your father depends on the language you speak.
My father was Daddy to me, a larger than life personality in every way.
He was my role model, my protector and the first man in my life.
I felt safe and loved when he cradled me in his arms.
He was in his 50s when I was born. He and mum were widowed and had children from their first marriages.
I always explained that I was the “ours” in the “yours, mine and ours” arrangement that was our blended family.
