“We know you don’t know us, but we watch you every morning…”
Fathers are the most important male figures in a girl’slife.The way they treat women molds our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us more than we could ever know.
And as this story can attest to, dads have the power to influence more than just their own daughters. In a Facebook post by Love What Matters,Lorena Juregui de Birdy shares a heartwarming taleof how her husband’s everyday actions toward their daughter hailed him “Super Dad” to a group of middle school “Super Fans” that he didn’t even know were watching.
This is a letter my husband received on his vehicle by students at my son’s middle school. See, my son’s middle school is located next to my daughter’s elementary school attached by a concrete pathway between the lots. Every morning my husband parks his car at my son’s middle school parking lot and allows our son to walk to his 7th grade courtyard while he takes our daughter out of her car and walks her to her school. Every morning our daughter drags her dad by the hand to her school and every morning my husband holds her backpack and any other toy she insists on walking with them. As my husband returned from dropping off our daughter one morning, he spotted the attached letter on his windshield. It’s true what they say, it’s the little things that matter most and sometimes go unnoticed, it took the innocence of a few middle school “Super Fans” to remind me of the amazing father my children have and of the wonderful husband I married.
“You show what a real man can do for his daughter. We love to watch you and every day our hearts melt just watching you and your daughter walking. The girls and I want someone like you to marry us one day.”
Sheesh. How precious is THAT?! I think my heart just grew three sizes.
Thanks, Super Dad, for showing today’s generation of budding young women that they deserve to be treated like the daughters of the most high King that they are.
“She is more precious than rubies.”
