Just Like That… I Am A Father
Written by Danny P Ocean on June 21, 2015
The past year my life has change in oh so many ways. I went from forever single to gaining a loving wife and daughter. Fair enough? Well to top this fiscal year off, I have been blessed with my first child two weeks ago. Life is Good!
I think it is safe for me to say that I never knew love like this before. For all of my life being a parent was never a big deal for me because I didn’t see the love in it. Yes, I always wanted my own child, someone to shape and guide through life: a reflection of myself. But if that gift was never bestowed on me I thought that it wouldn’t be a major loss in my life. But June 5, 2015 changed my whole outlook on life.
Seeing my wife give birth to my child was an experience I heard about, but couldn’t grasp the significance of it until I witnessed it. For the first time in my life I met a person who I HAD to love unconditionally and was ready to do so. I was overwhelmed with a love that can be only felt by those who are parents in the world. Immediately I knew that all that I have and all of my love was hers until the day I pass away.
They say the coolest playas and foulest heart breakers in the world
God gets us back, he makes us have precious little girls
Funny how that works out doesn’t it? Once I looked my daughter in her fresh newborn eyes I felt as if no dude would be good enough for her. I don’t care if the son of a President of the United States appeared on my doorstep, “playboy you ain’t good enough!!” However before I was married for years I was the dude on the doorstep meeting my share of fathers, and often times the relationships with their daughters ended in heart breaks. I was on some player shit. Well maybe not player shit, it’s just some women thought they understood my story. But karma has come full circle and I sit here with two precious daughters of my own. Wow!!
All I can do is try to be the best example of what a father/man should be for my daughters to witness and fall in love with, so in hopes that once it is time for them to pick their boyfriends/husbands they select a winner. Not some I wanna be a thug-ass cat when I grew up, but a young man that knows how to treat a woman. If not, I have lessons from the Father’s Rifle Club and will run a young dude down.
