A thought-provoking piece, but in defense of the son I must note that the circumstances when he asked the questions were probably not the same as "now" (i.e. the father was not preoccupied but was playing with him), and one expects different behavior from a three-year-old than from a, say, sixty-three-year-old.
It's good the son did not do a critical analysis, factoring in behavior/circumstances/math...........that he just recognized who he was with and what he has done for him, in a loving way, for his entire life. I think he reacted the way most would have. IMHO.
Good piece Basic!
777, thanks for posting this. As a young man, it helps me appreciate my father through all his flaws. I was not expecting to find a short film like this here, thank you. Just what I needed.
Nice film clip, but I have no reference.....My sons have never yelled at me, at least not since they were children. I am blessed to have children who I love unconditionally, and enjoy that same love from them. There is not a day goes by that I don't give thanks for that blessing!
That does not mean that I do not understand annoyance, and irritability, I was the primary care giver for an aging mother for a number of years, and I was constantly reminding myself.....A labor of love, "Unconditional love!". And I suppose she never felt the need to remind me of that, it was a given!
Totally agree, both before (irritated) and after (loving) reading Dad's journal.
