“Fathers and Daughters”


I think the adage is true…….you look for your father in your husband.

Some look for the guy who always fixes things…….

If your dad could be depended on to fix that radiator hose in the middle of nowhere and get you home……..you look for that in a guy.   If your dad was the guy who stretched his arm out across your body if the car stopped short, you know the first time that guy does that…….he is the one.

Fathers always made it right……if you were given a good one.   If you needed a ride home, they were there.   If you needed money, they were there.  If you needed a home to come home to when things weren’t so great……they were there.

If you are truly lucky, you find that guy………..and he becomes the father your daughter knows is always there.   In life, radiator hoses break, hearts break as well……it is nice to know there is someone out there waiting for a chance to help mend either or both………..

My dad is gone now; sometimes he makes his presence known to me from another place.  He is still there waiting, it’s harder for him to fix things now, but I never for a moment doubt he intervenes in whatever way is spiritually possible.   Deep within my soul, I am still that little girl, wanting my dad to look at me the way he does in this old photograph……..

Happy Father’s Day to all reading this……….DSC_4293
