I am just inspired to tell how important it is for girls/women to have their Daddy's in their life in a very big way. I realize in my mature years how my Dad's presence in my life has made me the woman I am today. There is nothing like a fathers love to his daughter. His attention, His embrace, His smile! The nurturing, protective love. It gives us a Confidence, a Walk, an Attitude like no other. I am reminded by my friends that I am truly blessed to have had my Dad actively in my life although he and my mom divorced when I was young.
When I reflect on the fact that my Daddy actually used to braid my hair it makes me smile to this day.
The end result is a Respect for Men, and not a need for the wrong attention from a Man. We look for the same honorable character in our future soul mates.
Daddy's out there PLEASE spend just as much time with your Daughters as you do your Sons.
Men out there honor your woman (any woman)as much as you would honor your own Daughter(even sister). Women will grow to Respect themselves more and in turn Respect you as their Warrior, Lover, and Friend.
The chain re-action: loved daughters grow up to be loving mothers of loved children, and loving nurturing wives of Wonderful Men (who were loved and nurtured by their mothers and fathers) Get it!
Unity for a better Society.
I love you Dad!
