Daddy's Girl

One day, a man came into the place where I worked with his one-year-old daughter. He was handsome and in the eyes of us girls he became even more once he asked us if he could sit somewhere in the building to feed his little child.

We were all in a "Oh, uh, wow..." mood! How sweet to observe a man dedicating his time to his little baby in that way. Because, as we know, some men don't care about their children but some others are excellent fathers.

When I see scenes like that, my mind goes back down memory lane to my infancy. To the time when I was the jewel in my father's eyes. Because, you see, I am the last born of my father. The one his elders children thought he was too old to have. I am the unwanted-wanted child. The luck and bless of the family. The one destine to help the family achieve something great. That is the reason I think he chose my beautiful name.

I miss him and every time I see men of old age I compare their age and their look to my father; because if he was alive he would have been just like one of them. I miss him and for the first time I am writing something about the feeling of a girl who grew up without the love of a real father.

I hope this year is the last year that my Hubby will not have a little one to wish him a wonderful father's day. I know he will love our children very much and I wish our children experience the love of their father forever.



  1. How sweet!! I think your husband should still celebrate Father's Day because he is a future father. And I'm pretty sure that there are some Happy Future Father's Day cards out there that will make him feel just as special. Here's to hoping that God will rain you guys out a miracle in the form of a tiny bundle of joy soon. Keep the faith and stay positive. It will happen.

    As I heard a pastor say this morning, God knows the desires of our heart. And sometimes we just have to be patient.

  2. Thanks YUMMama, you are right I have to be patient. I am quite chilled these days.

  3. Coming by from SITS. Beautiful post. You do have the love of your father even though he isn't there physically to give it.

  4. Oh, what a bittersweet post. I'm so sorry that you're not able to have your dad here with you on Father's Day anymore. I know that must make your sweet heart ache. But I totally agree with YUMMama when she says that God knows the desires of our heart and, hopefully, sometime really soon your hubby will be a dad. Then you and he will have something truly wonderful to celebrate together each Father's Day and you will really smile as you continue to honor the memory of your wonderful father, too. What a glorious day that will be!

    I'm stopping by from SITS. I wanted to say hello and share some comment lo♥e.

  5. That sounds so sweet. It is so hard to find a man willing to not only be a father in but behave like one.

    Sorry you are feeling the loss of your dad. (((HUGS)))

    Still praying for you guys!

  6. I feel so lucky to still have my dad. And I hope you get to experience the joys of being a parent very soon.


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
