The greatest gift I ever had came from God; I call him Dad!
He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.
Ever since I can remember and let me clarify.....(my memory is excellent) my dad was and still is a constant presence in my life. He seems to always know when something is just not right with us.......his girls..... Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown. I'm as lucky as can be, for the world's best dad belongs to me.
All through my childhood and now as a grown woman the man that has always been my example in life is my dad...daddy as we always call him. I have not met many with his integrity, honesty, determination and endless capacity to give love.
My father taught me to be independent and cocky and free thinking, and to never give up no matter what. Today because of this I am a better person. I value people and I know what it is to work hard and to fight for what you believe in. Old as I am, I still my daddy sometimes......we live in different States.
He has taught us all to respect others, to always be positive and to never say we CAN"T!!! If there is a will there is a way.....
Simple walks with my dad around the block on summer nights when I was a child did wonders for me as an adult. I will always have those beautiful memories of me following him everywhere he went and of him holding on strongly to me and never letting me go.....my dad made me feel safe and always loved. He still does.
For many it is much easier to become a father than to be one.....in our case we are fortunate our dad is always our daddy........no matter when, where or time...he is daddy on the spot for his 5 girls.
Dad thank you for your nurturing light, for the wisdom of your laughter, and all the joy you bring us. You tickled my toes....checked for monsters , showed me the stars....And taught me how to reach them...I love you Dad.
You've taught me so much, I've watched how you live.....how you chase after life.....You inspire me to greater things. Dad you are my inspiration.
God made you my DAD.....LOVE made me your FRIEND.
I love you daddy....you are the best and I wanted the whole world to know that there is no one and I mean no one like you. A father is someone who is always there for you no matter what and someone who will listen to you and soothe your worries and tell you everything is going to be OK.....Happy Father's day Daddy.....
.....and to all the dads out there......HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!
"It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home—it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love."
