Celebrating True Fathers

Updated on October 23, 2016


Today we came to celebrate you…

Celebrate because you understand the need for a Man to step up like a man…

The need to find a way to always have an input in the lives of your children…

You understand and withstood the attacks against your character, the storms that kept trying to form while you tried to Do The Right Things…

So much has been written about your faults and very few talks, about those of you who didn’t walk or run away from responsibilities…

We gather to pay tribute for your efforts, for your commitments in becoming a better father, husband, and mate...

We gather because your stories are worth the rewards of knowing that you did a good job, in the eyes of God and the people who witness your growth…

You have become one of the models to follow…

Continue to destroy the myths and the stereotypes that always place men in negative lights…

Continue to show you understand and you do Give-a-Damn about your actions and inactions…

Continue to make your children smile around you, want to be with you, love everything about the new you.

Make your amends where it is needed, it’s the only way negative energy can stay defeated…

Smile on this day, walk erect, because you have earned the respect that you are getting now…

Celebrating YOU because you came along way from your yesterday.

Thank you for destroying a myth that Men don’t Give-A-Shh....

      Excellent! I write so much about mothers! More about fathers needed. Nicely put or expressed. Carry on, Bro.
