Fatherhood is not an obligation or duty for me…it’s a blessing.
I don’t have to raise my children, I GET to raise my children.
I get to change their diapers to let them know I care.
I get to provide for all their needs to let them know they have nothing to worry about.
I get to hug and kiss them daily to make sure they never question my love for them.
I get to love on their mother in front of them so they know how to treat a woman.
I get to instill in them a strong identity of who they are so they don’t look to their friends or the media for a false one.
I get to honor my father and all that he has taught me by imparting the same principles in my children with hopes they achieve much greater than I have.
I get to see their faces light up and yell “Daddy!” as soon as I get home.
This whole fatherhood thing…I get it.
And I am filled with joy and truly blessed to be called to father such amazing children.
Happy father’s day to my amazing Dad Percy Davis who continues to be a great blessing in my life.
Happy father’s day to all the men who have answered the call of fatherhood and know their life is blessed to have done so.
