The One I Call Dad
Dr.  Laura: 

My son is 14 years old and I’d like to share what he wrote in the homemade card he gave his Dad for his birthday:

"Happy Birthday Dad! Hope you have a great day. I love you because you're always there when I need help, when school is getting difficult and when I'm having "teen" problems."
Then he added this poem.

          He never looks for praises,
          He's not one to boast,
          He just goes quietly working,
          For those he loves the most,
          His dreams are all achieved,
          His wants are very few,
          and most of the time his worries,
          will go unspoken too,
          He's there....A firm foundation
          Through all out storms of life
          A sturdy hand to hold to,
          In times of stress,
          A true friend who loves you,
          The one I call DAD.
