Its difficult to size the people that are important in my life , I've met hundreds of people throughout my life that have either been of small importance or have made an imprint in my life. However, the person who has made the biggest impact on my life, is my Father. He is my rock, the person that has gotten me through everything and someone I will always look up to and strive to be.
My father grew up in a small town, San Saba, Texas. He had one of those hard; rough childhoods. I'd say when he was around like 9 or 10 is when he started working with my grandfather and my dads three brothers. Picking pecans from sunrise till sunset. Working hard everyday. I asked him once why he didn't play football or anything like that and he said “because grandpa just wanted us to work”. My dad has five siblings so I can see why it was so ...view middle of the document...

Though I say this now, he wasn't always my favorite person. When I was younger, I lived with my mom( my parents are divorced). I loved staying with her but always dreaded the day when It was my dads turn to have me. The reason for this dreadfulness, I would get in trouble at my mom's constantly, and she isn't a very strong will person so she didn't exactly know what to do, so the way she dealt with the situation is by calling my dad so he could deal with it. Now my dads a very respectable, and honest man, also very strict. I was grounded for weeks, or months sometimes, and the place for this punishing was at my Dad's house, sometimes he would even take away my makeup, which he knew meant a great deal to me. He was always giving me long lectures, I'd say at least once a month. So every occasion I got in trouble he was the one to do the punishing so he began to look like the bad guy. However, he was the exact opposite, and its taken me about 4 years to realize it. To realize that his words really meant something, that they would be valuable in every aspect of my life. My dad is a very religious person and he fully believes in the word of God and that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” and he's always told me to have faith. It if it wasn't for him telling me this nearly everyday I probably would be in a way worse place than I am today.
He is and immensely important person in my life and always will be. He's made an impact on my life because of all the values and morals he's taught me. Teaching me the values of life and telling me to never give up, treat people with respect no matter who, if you don't like someone you still say hi to them, do the right thing, etc. Also his ability to improve his family's life has inspired me to always try my hardest to get the best out of life. I take his words and will always carry them with me. I believe the impact that my father has had on my life will affect the way I will be for the rest of my life.
