Fathers Love their Daughters
On April 29, 2004, God saw fit for My husband and I, to welcome into this world a daughter. NEVER have i witnessed a love stronger than that of his love for her. In 8 years, there has never been a day to go by that he has not seen her. She, (in addition to our son), completes him. I sometimes sit back in blissful contentment as i watch quietly he and she. The bond that they share is quite beautiful. They have a harmonious balance that only a father and daughter can share. He speaks to her in such a way that allows her to feel comfortable in sharing anything with him. He is there when she laughs as well as to wipe her tears when she cries. He hugs her, lifts her chin, and says exactly the right thing to make his daughter smile. They share a language made only for them, and it is one that i will NEVER INTRUDE UPON, or come in between. In her eyes, he is Greatest. There is a mild leniency that never undercuts the obedience and respect that she has for her father. There is nothing in the life of my husband that will not come to an abrupt halt when it pertains to our children. One will NEVER know anger until he has seen the anger that can be unleashed by the love of a father, when he feels as though his children need his protection. Our son is disabled, and as a result ,my daughter spends alot of time feeling like an only child. she tries to play with her big brother in her own way, but it is not as two children with no disorders would play. I said that to say. that she also does alot of the activities with her dad that our son would more than likely be doing if he were able. such as trying to help him in the yard, video games, etc. It's as if, she balances her dad, and he balances her....like one holding the missing puzzle piece to the other. whether they are crafting, or playing practical jokes, chasing each other, laughing, (trying to dance lol),or simply sitting in silence together.... There is a love for her, that is greater than him. That love is responsible for many extra shifts, tears as a provider, worry, and overall.... joyfulness. The song "Daughters" resonates so beautifully to him, because the love felt and heard in the creation of this song is as astounding as that of my husbands love for his daughter as well.
