A Girl Always Needs Her Daddy

Hey everyone! I wrote this on Facebook tonight and in honor of Father’s Day I’m sharing it here. To all the daughters missing their daddies tonight: I am with you.

Whenever I felt lonely or sad, or had something exciting to share, or just wanted to chat about nothing, all I had to do was pick up the phone and call him. He was always there for me. He showed me how women should be treated: with respect and admiration. He showed me through his actions that people were people when it came to things like sexuality, race, creed, etc. He only ever criticized people for ignorance or bad fashion choices – things they could change. He was encouraging and optimistic instead of critical and negative. He made me feel safe. I know with 100% certainty that he would be so proud of all I’ve accomplished since he’s been gone, because he always was proud of me no matter what. He was the one person I could always count on. We were a team. I miss you, Daddy.

  1. My love to you Andrea. It is my first Father’s Day without my Dad. It’s very painful. I’m going to spend the day doing something I love, maybe making something, or gardening, and try and think happy thoughts x

  2. Beautiful words Andrea. It sucks that he is no longer here with us. I know you miss him every day and are sad because of it some days. But I’m so glad you have some amazing memories and his lessons will be with you forever. In part because of his character you became someone amazing.
