The Shaver of my Father

Since its Fathers’ day month this June, I want to post something that is related about father.

As I am brushing my teeth last night I saw my fathers’ shaver on the top of the sink.  It was very old, and as I remember it was already his shaver when I was a child.

While I am looking at it, this question comes into my mind: How many people in the world still uses this kind of shaver?  Maybe very few, because nowadays many of us wants everything that is instant and everything that is quick.

Last year my husband gave my father an electronic shaver and I ask my father last week why he is not yet using it, he told me that he still have a shaver that’s why he’s not yet using it.  And I think he like this better than the one that we gave him.

My father is now 72 years old, maybe this shaver has the same age as him, but it is still working and doing good.  I wonder how long this shaver will last maybe forever.

Advance Happy Fathers' day to all of the fathers out there.  May God continue to prolong your days in the world and be a blessing to all your children and loved ones.
