There are things that mothers simply cannot teach their sons. There are lessons that little girls learn from their fathers that only sound like parables when told from a mother’s perspective.
The relationship between a child and a father is ridiculously important.
For little girls, it’s their first example of love. For little boys, it’s a guideline for their life of love. Dads set the tone at an early age.
Considering how much of an impact this is, now imagine how painful it can be when that father is absent from the home; absent from the child’s life. It’s crushing. Even though it may not present itself the same in every child, they are directly affected.
Dads, we need you, ALL of you. Not just the time that you can dedicate. Not just the time that you find that’s free, we need your ALL in everything you do with us.
We need your Love. We need your encouragement. We need your support. We need your provision. We need you patience. We need your guidance and advice. We need your strength. We need your vulnerability. We need YOU.
Its okay to take time for yourself. It’s okay conduct a little introspective inventory and figure out areas in which you can improve and be the best Dad to your little onlookers. It’s not easy, we get it.
Dads, we thank you for all you’ve imparted on is throughout the years. We thank you for teaching us, understating us. But most importantly, we thank you for loving us.
