When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her a gift. You’re giving her love. You’re giving her confidence. You’re giving her self esteem. You’re giving her self worth. You’re giving her something money can’t buy. You’re giving her something mommy’s just can’t replace.
When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her a #1 fan. A cheerleader. A coach. A real chance. You’re giving her a teacher. A best friend. A body guard. A superhero. The strongest man in the world.
When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her more than just a father. We share DNA with our fathers. We share giggles, tickles and dance parties with our Daddys. A father cannot replace a Daddy but a Daddy can replace a father.
Daddys spend time. Daddys will worry. They will wonder where you are and pray you’re safe when you’re 5 minutes late. Daddys will call. Daddys will care. Daddys will love you even when they’re disappointed in you. Daddys will do their part.
When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her a lap to sit on. A shoulder to cry on. A hand to hold. Someone to twirl her around until she is so dizzy she can’t stand. When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her a lifetime of fun.
When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her a man that will never leave. You’re giving her a happy mother. When you give a girl a Daddy you’re giving her security and stability.
I can’t imagine being a Daddy is easy. It takes a strong man to carry the world on his shoulders. To make that drive every other weekend. To hear your child’s voice on the phone everyday while you wish you could hold her. Daddys that are separated from their kids mother but still find a way to be apart of their child’s life.
Daddys show up because they want to not because they have to. The voice you hear screaming your name from the bleachers, that’s your Daddy. Daddys aren’t always there the day you we’re born. Sometimes they come much later. Sometimes they’re your mother’s second chance at love.
There isn’t one way to be a good Daddy, there are a million ways to be a good Daddy. Be there. Care. Laugh a lot.Guide them. Don’t forget to tell them you love them. One day your little girl will be a woman. She’s looking to you to show her what a man is.
Be the Daddy you’d want for your future grandchildren. Have patience. Don’t mind the mess. Have fun. Understand that girls are emotional and sometimes say things we don’t mean. We need you. Every girl has a father. Every girl needs a Daddy.
You will never wake up 20 years from now and regret being a good Daddy but I promise you that you will never forgive yourself for being a bad one.
