Not Just Another Dad“
What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be a dad? Where do the two meet, and where are they in conflict?
Come by and see who has added their 2-cents to the Manhood v. Dadhood!
[Excerpt] To tell you the truth I am not a father, the thought of it alone scares me. Now this is not to say that I don’t ever wish to be one. I am actually excited for the day when I can call someone my own. The reservations that I have stem from a long line of poor father figures. My father was not a good person, his father; from the little I remember of him was not a good father.The Call of Duty“
[Excerpt] I used to be a single mother and my parents have been together since they were 19 years-old. I know the value of a good father in the home. Both genders of children can benefit from what a father can teach. We have boys and one daughter. Our boys can learn how to be men. Our daughter can know the feeling of being valued and honored by a male and carry that on to her future relationships.ManSong – Little Moments“
[Excerpt] As a man, the song that really hits me every time I hear it is Brad Paisley’s “Little Moments.” I loved this song from the very first time I heard it. I was just starting to date the woman, who would become my wife and the mother of our little girl, and I didn’t realize it then, but it was describing how I felt when I was with this amazing woman who was stealing my heart. Looking back at our life together so far, this song means more and more to me every time I hear it.
[Excerpt] As a husband, Dad exemplified a loving, loyal and lasting relationship. His love for Mom endured through a five-year courtship, a three-year separation during World War II and more than six decades of marriage. He showed that love in gentle glances and tender touches to the very end.
[Excerpt] So what is manhood? It’s got to be more than being the biggest and strongest. At lease I hope so or at 5’7″ I’m in trouble. Nope, it’s something much more than that and from what I have seen, we don’t all get there and sometimes even when we do, we don’t always stay.“Rings” by @ellemenopee [Excerpt] Maybe this is silly, but to me, it isn’t. I want to wear them again. I feel like I can wear them again. I fee, like I have a marriage to wear them for again. Thing is, I want him to ask me all over again.
