A Flashback for Father’s Day
Written by Issa Ms'Eye on June 21, 2015
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen within her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
These words are both beautiful & encouraging … most mothers have a phenomenal way of passing such sage advice on to their daughters and such; however, these are the words of an educator-humorist written for HIS grandchild. YES HIS!!! Too often, the need for a nurturing word from a father or grandfather is left only to be filled by the womanly wisdom & guidance of Momma & Big’Momma. However, Dads are breaking thru the rhetoric that illustrates their absence from the proverbial family. I know some phenomenal fellas who love, cherish, nurture, protect, and raise their children.
In light of Father’s Day, which is sometimes no more than a passing thought in the month of June, I would like to acknowledge fathers (in all capacities) that truly do pass these beautiful words on to their baby girls. Dads can be and really are more powerful that one might think. Due to the social deformities that have blocked many fathers’ direct guidance, today’s society has somewhat discounted the importance of fatherly input. Growing young women will always benefit from the irreplaceable positive support that fathers give to round out a strong sense of self that good mothers so eloquently put into motion. Much Love to the daddies that have been there from day1 … Kudos to the dads by default that ‘stepped’ in for the greater good … High5 to the uncles, brothers & cousins that never fail to look out … Respect to all MEN who truly know what it means to be a father to all children and do just that!
To end this with a laugh:
Chris Rock said that the primary job of a father was to keep his daughter off of the stripper pole.
It all can easily start with just a kind and encouraging word.
… word? WORD!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY 💋
