Yesterday, my kids complained. Mauchy, my nickname, how can you leave during fathers day?
I explained to them, I need to travel on Sundays so I won't waste all working week traveling… After a while, they understood.
Today, when I landed in Miami I got a great surprise. My wife and kids had emailed a great letter for fathers day. A great present!... A better present when Nesrin called me "handsome"... ja, ja.
Our 3 kids are very lucky to have Mauchy as their father, confidant, and best friend!
Meaning of a father:
Mauchy is happiest when he is with his kids! Mauchy defines wealth in time spent with his kids! You are a very wealthy man and our kids are rich with memories and good times! Here is a message for you from each one on your special day! We love you! - Nesrin
Happy fathers day padre! It’s your favorite and only son here wishing you a fun fathers day. Your spending fathers day in Miami and we want you to know we didn’t forget about you on this special day. I can’t express how much knowledge you have shown me and all the fun times we have had. You have shown me your business and allowed me to be part of some important decisions. We have had great times going to your restaurants and learning how to run a successful business. You have taught me many attributes but the most important one is perseverance. I will never give up no matter how difficult the task and if you have perseverance in your career, you are bound do succeed. To succeed after many failures that you learned from of course. You are a big part of my life and you have shaped the person who I am today.
A father to me is someone who shares his knowledge with you and helps make your life a whole lot brighter. Someone that you have inside jokes with and that can be trusted with valuable information. Someone who will back you up and provide help the best he can. Someone who will love you no matter your flaws. I want to say thank you Mauchy for being the best padre I could ever ask for and continue being the man you are.- Gabriel
There are many different ways to say Father. Dad, Padre, Daddy, Baba, Pa, etc.
But they all mean the same thing. For me father means my hero my role model, my Mauchy! My dad taught me to stand up for myself and not let anybody push me around. He always told me not to be intimidated by others. Mauchy has been there for me whenever I needed him. Whenever I’m hurt he doesn’t baby me, he makes me stronger. He always tells me not to be a follower but to be a leader. He tells me not to be weak to be strong. A father is somebody you can count on somebody you can tell everything to him and someone who loves you. Thank you Mauchy for everything you’ve done for us and continue to do, and for putting up with the fights and complaints. Thank you and Happy Fathers Day!!!! - Isabela (the favorite)
Happy Fathers Day Mauchy! You’re in Miami right now, but I still wanted to wish you a happy Fathers Day. You are the best dad anyone could ever ask for and you have taught me so much. You have taught me lessons about life, business, and becoming a better person. I know you love us very much and will always put your family first, even though we annoy you all the time. Whenever I am with you we never stop laughing. We can always bother you and all you do is laugh. You always have patience with us and you don’t take life too seriously. You have taken me all around the world and I have seen and learned so much with you. You have made me a stronger person and taught me to never give up. You never allow us to use excuses and always tell us, “Excuses are for losers.” Thanks for being a great Padre and Happy Fathers Day! - Love, Daniela
