Because the greatest sign of a respect a daughter can have towards her father is ending up with someone who is half the man he is.
My Father’s Daughter
As a little girl, my dad was my life’s foundation. He always exuded this spirituality, although not religious; and the look in his eyes said he knew what I was feeling. I never had to say it. The kind of father/daughter love that every girl dreams of.
I have a mom who’s not only a mother to me but a father at the same time but I’ve always wanted to know the feeling of having both mother and father to two different people and not just into one.
When you were born, I really was scared. You were this new one foot tall human moving into our apartment.
A good man doesn’t take and expect, he gives back more than he receives. He doesn’t think that showing emotions is a weakness, he appreciates openness and vulnerability.
I never had a father figure and every year this holiday rolls around.
Be with him as long as it makes you happy. But — and this is important, kid — don’t worry about “supposed to” and don’t worry about the rest of your life. You have plenty of it.
No matter how many doors that will come our way, you are and will always be my hero and my first love, not because of the things you are giving me but because you are my Father.
I hope he has a family and a daughter of his own one day. I hope he gets that opportunity I didn’t have to teach his daughter all those important lessons I didn’t get to teach mine.
She might be yours and she might even love you but remember she loved him first.
