I have a distinct memory of him lecturing me about school when I was about 13. I brought home my first really bad grade and he was so unhappy with me. He sat down and explained that my middle school and high school years were laying the "foundation" for my education. I think he actually spent almost that entire year encouraging me to really absorb what I was learning in school and wanting me to succeed so badly that we spent hours doing extra credit projects so that I would get a better grade; these are two memories that I reflect back on often, I cherish the advice he gave me and the time he spent with me.
Things haven't always been perfect though, we both know that. We went through rough patches where we didn't really understand each other, I guess that's just part of growing up.
We've been through periods of time where we didn't talk much, but I always knew he loved me. No matter what, he's been there when I really needed him and for that I'm so grateful. He's helped me more than I could ever even begin to explain.
While he still may have some superhero qualities, the fact that I'm an adult now means that I've come to the realization that he is really just a normal person, just like the rest of us, just like every parent. While he may have made a few mistakes (hey, we all do)... That doesn't change a thing, I still want him to know he's a superhero in my eyes and always will be!
