Devoted Daddies, We Love YouJune 19, 2011 1 Comment
Whether you’re a daddy’s girl or not, Father’s Day makes you look back on the good memories with your dad and the huge role he has played in your life thus far.
As much as we all set out to find the man of our dreams, our other half and partner in crime, to raise a family with and share life’s trials and tribulations, most of us feel that we can always lean on our father in happiness and sadness.
When you get married, you agree to honour, love and be there for your partner in sickness and in health, but when it comes down to it, that’s exactly what our dads do — and more. They love us regardless of our sexuality, appearance, intelligence and whether we’re rich or poor. He’s the first man you can trust and rely on.
Just because they walk us down the aisle and give us away doesn’t mean that they ever stop doing their jobs. It also doesn’t mean that their role is thereafter diminished. A dad’s devotion stretches beyond vows and knows no limits.
No matter how much they work, dads want to spend time with their kids. Looking back, I remember how my dad taught me how to swim, coached my softball team, brought us two adorable puppies, took me on a road trip to see all of the universities I had applied to and the phenomenal example of love he set for me by loving my mom unconditionally. There are so many more examples, but the point is that he took so much time out of his own life to be a major part of my world.
You may feel like you’re always in your father’s debt since he sacrificed so much to give you the very best, but dads are glad to do it.
For all the fathers living and who have passed, we can’t thank you enough. Happy Father’s Day.
Love, your daughter.
