Dad's tips for adding life to a daughter's years
"A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter: “Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.”
The little girl said: “No, Dad. You hold my hand.”
“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father.
“There’s a big difference,” replied the little girl.
“If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go."
"My dad lives several states away, and has climbed pretty high up his career ladder and travels often. But he always calls on Sunday nights to talk to me - we have discussed everything from diapers to Democrats over the years. I am married with 3 kids of my own, and I treasure each week we get to talk. We may both have aged a bit, but he is just as intentional about showing his love as he was in my childhood."
"My dad became a single father of 2 when I was 6 years old when my mom decided to leave us. After the divorce, custody battle and thirty-three years later, my dad has never said anything negative about my mom to me or my brother. He would share with us all the happy memories of her from when they met and of us in our early childhood. One of the many reasons why I love him so! One of my favorite memories is my dad learning to brush my hair and making “perfect” pig tails and pony tails in the morning before I went to school. :)"
