To our daddy...

Ever since I could remember; as far back as a little girl, I dreamed of choosing the right father for my children. 
A father who would treat them as "daddy's little girls". 
A father who would always be there for them, protect their emotions, let them know that he cares about their feelings & that they can always talk to him. I wanted my daughters to have a daddy that they played with, laughed with, cried with, & that no matter what, he'd always let them know he loves them. 
A father that showed them he loved & respected their mother and would never hurt her, or them. A father that would always encourage them and praise them. 
A father who isn't afraid to tell anyone how much he loves his daughters. 
A father who would smile at them and tell them they were the most beautiful girls a father could have. 
A father that is interested in everything they do, because he cares. 
A father who would provide for them, not just financially, but emotionally. 
A father who valued family time and made it a priority. 
A father who would show empathy, sympathy, and loyalty. 
A father that listened. 
A father who prayed with them.
 A father........ who was nothing like mine. 
Everyday that I watch Brandon with our daughters, I feel like I have given them the best gift ever...the father that every girl needs. He is everything and more than I ever dreamed a father would be. 
♥ Thank you Brandon...

I can so identify with your wanting a father for your children that was nothing like the father you had. I raised two children alone without a father and this time with Ben I finally got it right. You are so lucky to have Brandon. Those who love you will keep reminding how lucky you both are to have each other. Always.

You are a very smart girl! You knew very early that the best thing you can give you children is the greatest father:) I am so happy you have done that. Your young family brings tears to my eyes, you are all very lucky to have each other. Thank you for sharing at Freedom Fridays!
