I would like to wish a Happy Fathers Day to all of those who are dad, daddy, pop, etc. ! This day was a sad day for myself for many years, because I was always seeking the daddy figure that my father should have been . Instead of being a daddy he chose to be an alcoholic, abuse pain killers, and gamble . So many kids today suffer because their fathers choose not to be a daddy .
So, to all you fathers out there, don't just father a child into this world, but be the daddy that your child deserves . A child craves attention, discipline, direction, and just honest love . I know this not only because I craved it everyday of my childhood, but because I am a father/daddy to a beautiful energetic little girl !
I vow to be the father/daddy that she will need throughout her entire life as long as GOD will allow me !
I have to agree with you. I was brought up in a similar circumstance. My Father was the same way. The Saloons he frequeted if you called to ask him to come home, the lizard who answered the phone would say he is not here.
I too hope Fathers will look closely at the image they are giving their sons. Identity is so important to a teenage son, and the fathers who put a drink before their family, needs to reevaluate themselves.
