When You Give A Dad A Daughter

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re giving him is someone he’ll love unconditionally.

No matter how many mistakes she makes.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re really giving him is another woman to love in his life.

Someone he’ll protect and look after every day of his life.

When you give a dad a daughter, you’re giving him the motivation to want to do more.

Someone who gives him another reason to get up in the morning.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re really giving him is the ability to love someone in a new way he’s never known how.

Someone who has opened even the deepest chambers of his heart.

When you give a dad a daughter, you’re giving him someone he’ll never want to say no to.

You’re giving him someone who has a piece of his heart and has him wrapped around her finger the day she’s born.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re giving him is a lesson on the importance of dresses and makeup and designer labels.

You give him a first look at how complicated and expensive raising a girl really is.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re really giving him is the want and need to be an example to follow in what she should expect of others.

He’ll set the template for how she’ll be treated and what she’ll look for in every man.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re really giving him is someone he believes in more than anyone.

Someone he needs to build up because he knows the world will try and knock her down.

When you give a dad a daughter, what you’re really giving him is someone he wants to be a role model for.

Someone he wants to make proud. Because without even trying she makes him proud to be a father.

When you give a dad a daughter, you teach him about sensitivity.

Someone who can melt his heart with just one look.

When you give a dad a daughter, you give him the best gift he couldn’t even think to ask for.

Because it isn’t until you see her and fall in love immediately do you realize the bond between you two is far more than any words can even explain.

When you give a dad a daughter, you give him the greatest joy when he hears her say the word “dad.” TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
