A Note To My Father

A couple of weeks ago, for Father’s day, we asked you to share with us what you would say to your father for if you sent him a Thank You note.

You responded by sharing lots of encouraging and some very emotional messages that you would send to the men in your lives you have called dad.

As we did with Mother’s Day, here we share some of the Thank You Messages :

“I know the factors that make a dad now. The strictness, the watchful eye, the encouragement, the responsibility, the being there… I am one myself now. But I look back and try to see how best I could e better father and dad. We the best of pals now, laughing about all good old days, talking about the future. Thank God you still here to direct me all the way. Ahsante sana. Love you dad.” – Jon Binale

“Thank you father for if you were still alive, you would still be looking after me so well just like you did for the 19yrs we were together. RIP.” – Wakanyi Muigai

“Before i even thank u dad, I thank God because i believe without God there would be no fatherly love back on earth, so am taking this chance to thank you God for bring this handsome looking man, loving, caring, friendly man in to our lives – and that happens to be you dad ”Greyson mwasi”. You took that chance of being a father at the same time a mum to us, when she left us, u have always been strong and given us the love, care, support, and not forgetting your tender shoulders to lean on when things seemed to be so rough and tough to us. You made us not regret the fact that mummy left us for good, you made us feel that life is always at ease, and we have to move on. You are the greatest gift that God left us. Papa, you have given us a reason to put on a smile again. Once more, cheers dad for the great job u have done, mwaah!” – Shalet Mkamzungu

“Thank you dad for being in my life since i was i second old until now..for accepting your part in raising me & having to tolerate me in ma wrong doings.Thank you for stream lining me when i went wrong. You are just the best dad ever & no one can beat that. You are a very important part of my life & you know that..Despite ma wrong doings, you still assure that you love me & you are my dad. I’d do anything for you dad. Anything.  Love you so much & I miss you a lot. Love you dad!” – Princess Rabdi

“Thank you daddy for raising me to be a leader everywhere I go, be it in high school or in the University, you have taught me to be responsible by letting me pass through some challenges that have made me to be strong and believe myself. God bless my Dad MR.NJENGA.” – Winnie Njenga

“Thank you father for being there for me even when mum left, you took me to school every day, plaited my hair, ironed my uniforms, brought lunch for me and taught me how to cross the zebra crossing, in secondary even when I failed you never gave up on me, you came for all my parents and visiting days. As far as i can remember u bought me Bata shoes every time because I would step on them and not brush them up so as to look old by the end of the term. You took me to the best University in Kenya and taught me the best thing that u can offer me in life is education and one I can rely on is God. Thank you.” – Lyssette Chidichidi

“ Thank you dad for the 14 years you raised me, even though you passed on for 18yrs now, your memory and legacy lives on in us your children, thank you for teaching us discipline, hard work, and perseverance and determination i believe if you could see us you would be proud.” – Kenneth Muiruri Charagu

Thanks because i finally got a job and you will always wear the safari boot you love. I will always buy you coz upto were i am its you daddy. i love you sooo much.” – Cecilia Benson

“Dear dad…
your hands were soft & kind when I was crying
your hands were hard as steel when I’d done wrong,
your hands weren’t that gentle, but there was always love in them
being the man you made me be, I have l; learnt that
and that it is easier for a father to have children
than for children to have a real father.” – Stephen Ndeti

“You left us alone with our mum when we were young, u disappeared in our lives when we needed you most. Mum struggled so hard to bring us up, with all the pain n suffering she managed to bring the 5 of us up! I will be lying to the world if I say I love you, when my heart is filled with agony. I only thank you because were it not for you, I would not have been born.” – Rodah ‘D’ Swittest

“I don’t know what to say because I have never experienced any love from him. All I can say is that you made my mum strong gave her courage to do what a man was supposed to have done. If u were not there I would not have been in existence, so thank you.” – Kate Qutie Nyambura

“Special thanks for my dad for the following: My birth, taking care of me, educating me, training of business aspects. Lastly for teaching me how to keep money.” – Khalfan Komba
