Each minute of our life is a lesson but most of us fail to read it. I thought I would just add my daily lessons & the lessons that I learned by seeing the people around here. So it may be useful for you and as memories for me.
Article by Cute Daughter of a Lovely father…
I’d like to take a minute or two to express my never-ending gratitude for all that you do.
Dad You are my guide, friend, teacher, well wisher, teacher, opponent, strength, weakness. You are everything to me. I’d like to hold your hand till my last breath.
Being a father is no easy task. A father makes a huge impact on his daughter’s life. He is the first man she says “I love you” to, and the first man to really show her what love is.
To be honest, I can’t remember a time when you weren’t there for me — not only as a father, but as a best friend. As a child, you were my favorite playmate.
From teaching me how to walk or throw a ball, you’ve showed me ways to stand on my own two feet. A dad’s job is not only to protect his little girl, but also to show her how to defend herself when, one day, he is not around.
As much as I want to thank you, I also want to apologize. Raising a teenage girl might be one of the biggest challenges a father goes through. Speaking from my own experience, I’m sorry for any grey hairs I’ve caused you in the past.
Even though we don’t always understand each other, you’re one of the biggest influences in my life.
A father is the one who guides his daughter through life.
Whether it was a school play, sporting event, graduation or any defining moment in my life, you’ve always been one of my biggest fans. Wherever I end up, I hope I make you proud.
Thank you for offering your shoulder to cry during hard times. You comforted me without even saying anything; you put your arm around me and opened your ears to all of my jumbled words and tears. Thank you for patience.
Thank you for being exactly who you are to my mother, so that I can know in the inner strings of my heart that love exists and that I will find it for myself. Even in my own life when I lost hope, you showed me that love is the strongest force in the universe. Thank you for teaching me to never let go once I find it, and fight for it when I need to.
Every little girl grows up looking up to her dad, but I’ve never stopped. I know there’s no such thing as a perfect dad, but you come pretty close.
I can’t write any more. The tears are falling and the ink is fading. I haven’t really been myself lately
Thank you for believing, for hoping, for smiling, for laughing, for teaching, for loving, for supporting, for showing, and for praying. In short, thank you for everything.
