When Our Children Call Him Father

I love you Mister. Happy Fathers Day 💜.

I never had mine in my life,

But when I looked into the eyes of the man I love and agreed to marriage I knew I was making one of the best decisions as a wife.

My children would have something that we both never had,

A dad.

He is dependable,

He is strong,

He is comforting,

He is providing,

But most importantly he is present.

His presence is one of the best gifts he can give.

So he makes sure it’s felt,

Everyday that he lives.

Being the strong silent type, trying to express his words could seem like a bother,

But you should see the way his eyes light up

When our children call him father.

The Sins Of The Parents

As I down the last of my drink, I look into the eyes of the most precious child. She doesn’t deserve what she has to go through now. The person she loves and looks up to more than anything no longer resides in her home.

She questions everyday what time he’s coming home from work and I have no idea how to tell her that right now he’s not coming home, but one day she’ll be visiting him at his new house.

Her little mind won’t be able to fully understand how she went from a two parent home to one. She won’t get that the love and togetherness she was surrounded in is now split down the middle until a mutual co-existent bond can be formed in favor of her.

One day when she’s old enough the questions will come. She’ll wonder where the happiness went so quickly and why it didn’t work. I’ll have to smile in her face and feed her some excuse about how we both love each other but things just didn’t work out. I won’t have the heart to tell her that unfortunately the sins of the parents are too strong to overcome.
