Loving our Dads

“I have never been a material girl. My father always told me never to love anything that cannot love you back.” – Imelda Marcos

I truly love seeing a man cry joyous, happy tears because it shows his strength, vulnerability and the confidence that he possesses. When you can witness firsthand how his kids or spouse tell him how much they love, appreciate and are grateful to have him in their lives, and that they are proud of the man that he is… he tells himself, it’s ok to cry (get the tissue ready).

When we honor our dads, we are telling them that through all their struggles, sweat and hidden tears we love you dad. That the one true sacrifice that you made for us was to love us unconditionally, keep a roof over our head and food on the table; and you did it with love. Thank you, Dad, as I will always love and miss you. Rest In Peace (1991).

#Happy Father’s Day to my loving dad, may you rest in peace (I Love You), to all the dads, step-dads and awesome uncles who stepped in when we lost or needed a dad’s love, like my Uncle Bobby and Uncle Nabisco! Much Love!!!
