These men are fathers to daughters.
They are strong enough to be endlessly tender.
They are determined enough to provide for their girls.
They take their role seriously enough to be silly. Frequently silly.
They are fearless enough to dance, sing, and play “pretend”.
They are smart enough to teach, to guide, to show.
They know to savor story-times, conversations, and sweet questions.
They drink in tinkling laughter, melting hugs, and sleepy breath.
These men know that their little girls have great big dreams and beautiful spirits. And they would give their very lives to protect them.
These men are more than fathers. They are daddies. And they are heroes.
And their girls are all so very lucky to have them.
On this Father’s Day and every single day, we love you both so much.
