In the eyes of a Father

In the eyes of a Father, there shall not be a desire not fulfilled.
His heart is geared toward his children, each and every one.
None of them go without, no matter what it takes.
Each one is loved unconditionally, because they truly couldn't pay him back anyway.

I am blessed and cursed all in the same breath. My parents separated not long after my first birthday. My mother did remarry, and my step Father has been my DADDY from since I can remember. He has been there for me through heart aches, booboo's, to discipline my stubborn heart, to guide me in making wise decisions, to laugh at jokes he has heard a million times, to make me snacks after school, to provide my every desire as I grew up. I wasn't a "rich kid" in monetary value, but I can look back and see how I really wanted for nothing. A man, took a family and made it his when he didn't' have to. My birth father, was in and out of my life for as long as I can remember. I don't know things about him to be honest. My step Father? I can tell you he likes milk in the morning with breakfast, he loves Pepsi and can't stand coke, loves ice cream (chocolate or Neapolitan), his favorite thing used to be BBQ, but he doesn't enjoy the "work" as much as he used to. I know in my heart to this very day I can still go to him with any need and he would do what he had to do to provide that need. I am Thankful to God today for him. Because in this world, not many men will stand up and take on the responsibility of their own children, let alone someone elses. But you know what? He doesn't see me as anyone else's daughter but his. I am my daddy's daughter, and always will be.

This Father's day not only am I am blessed to have the love of my Daddy, but I do also have the love of my husband who is an excellent father to our children. I couldn't ask for a better man to love me, to love our children. He selflessly gives to our whims, and provides for our little family. I am honored and blessed to have these men in my life. NO matter what, at the end of the day, I know that I am loved!

There is one more I have to brag on! Our Heavenly Father! Without God, I probably wouldn't be where I am today, and who knows what trouble I may have found myself in. In times that I thought I couldn't endure one more thing, the strength of these men ( My Daddy and My Husband) and the love of my Father in Heaven has gotten me through every storm that has come my way. And as times get dark, and I feel alone, I have to remember, I couldn't be alone even if I wanted, not that I would.

Happy Father's Day!
