Well honestly speaking it is not possible to express my love for my father in just few words or some paragraphs..I can write a whole book and much more for my father,who is my guider, my friend , my true strength..
Before writing anything about my father I would like to share these words from a letter of a french man who wrote this to his daughter..because these words just melted my heart and surely it will touch your heart too..
Words from letter
Dear little one,
As I write this, I’m sitting in the makeup aisle of target..when you have a daughter, you start to realize she’s just as strong as everyone else in the house..a force to be reckoned with, a soul on fire with the same life and gifts and passions as any man. But sitting in this store aisle, you also begin to realize that most people won’t see her that way..they’ ll see her as pretty face. And they’ll tell her she has to look a certain way to have any worth or influence. Words do have power and may be, the words of a father can begin to compete with the words of the world. May be a father’s words can deliver his daughter through this gauntlet of institutionalized shame and into a deep, unshakeable sense of her own worthiness and beauty..I pray that three words will remain more important to you..
Where are you the most beautiful?? ON THE INSIDE.
” ln my practice I see far too many woman, young and old, who believe their worth is wrapped up in the way they look. It is painful to observe what these kind of messages do to a woman self-esteem. So I wrote the letter because I wanted my daughter to know that her worth is not connected to what she does or the way she looks.. that kind of thinking is a formula for shame. The experience of believing you are not worthy enough or that success depends on what you do..I want my daughter to clearly understand that there was nothing she could do that would make her mom or dad love her more or less”
These words. ♥
Well the reason of shairing this letter to you all is that.. I have always been very passionate about the relationship of father and daughter because for me it is one of the strongest bond of the world.
I think father’s involvement in the life of a daughter will help prepare her to catch the lies that culture teaches about how to be confident and beautiful.
The unconditional, intentional love of a father teaches his daughter that true beauty is on the inside, in her heart♥ knowing this from an early age will help over power the messages she will receive out in the world. And honestly according to me only a father can do it. Because He doesn’t give his power to his daughter he just arouse the power within herself.
When I count my blessing..I count my father billion times..because he is a man who is my true strenght..
He is a man who held my hand when I was toddling and taught me how to laugh, talk, smile, walk. The steps he walked by myside fearing of my falls, though I did! He raised me from the ground and told me “it’s alright”. The man who watched me grow day after day. Told me to stand tall no matter what.
He is the man I saught for a cuddle and a little tap on my shoulder when my time got hard. The moral and respect I learnt from him. Patience are inherited to me from my father. He gave me everything and still doing.
He made me the girl I’m today. A girl who still falls and sometimes needs a tap on the shoulder.. He is standing right behind me while encouraging me to face the world. As, I have seen so many fathers who cut the wings of their own fairies . He is definitely not like them. He didn’t immure me but gave me wings to fly.
And I can proudly say that I will always choose my father over and above any other man ..
