Reflections on Father’s Day

A Father…

~ beams with pride when his baby grabs hold of his finger ever so tightly.  A grasp that seems to say “Daddy, don’t ever leave me!”

~ goes out of his way to get his child that box of color pencils she asked for for her birthday.  A daughter’s smile will make Daddy’s day, anytime.

~ gives his child a hug and soothes away the pain of a tummy ache.  Nothing beats the comfort of Dad’s embrace.

~ prays with the family and guides us to follow God’s Word.

~ shows his child how to solve a complicated Mathematics question in the simplest manner possible. 

~ offers his arm when his daughter takes that walk down the aisle.  An loving nudge in the right direction for the beautiful journey she was about to embark on.

~ is always there to listen to his children, no matter how busy he is.

~ is the calm in the midst of a storm.

~ is why Father’s Day is celebrated.

…and deep deep down, every woman is still Daddy’s little girl…..

    Aww…that got me thinking about what a Daddy’s girl I am! 🙂 I guess in our daddies eyes, we’ll always be their little girls despite how old we are or independent we proclaim to be!

    The Giddy Tiger says: Spot on, Pinkelle! 😀
