My Appa

In this inexplicable mystery called life, we sometimes get surprise-gifts. One such gift in my life is my Appa. Even though we are not biologically related in this life, he is the one person from whom I keep on receiving fatherly affection. Appa knows when I need words of encouragement and offers them to me. Somehow he senses when I am hurt, and he heals me with his words of kind wisdom and with his inimitable sense of humour.

Having gone through more-than-enough pain in his own life, he chooses to be compassionate to others and has not become bitter in his attitude. True, we argue at times, but I know he tells me what he thinks will help me be a better person as well as lead a happier life. At the same time, he respects my space and accepts the personal choices I make. My Appa says I inspire him. In this often unfairly ultra-critical world, he works wonders in my life by saying I am worthy of appreciation.

Through this post, I wish to express my love and gratitude for Appa. I hope he reads it and understands how important he is to me. God bless my Appa.

( 'Appa' means Father)

True Ayesha, your appa is right too, don't you see by the 5* ratings that you consistently keep getting? Be the same self and make sure you remain a worthy daughter to your appa always.
