Happy Father's Day!!!

Father's Day
Just because you're a daddy, doesn't mean you deserve the honor that is Father's Day. That's something that must be earned through your actions. There are good men out there that aren't taking responsibility for what they've helped create. On the other hand, there are those that aren't given the credit that they deserve, or are afraid to let it be know that they are doing the right thing because of who they surround themselves with. A lot of people think that daddy and father are one and the same. That couldn't be further from the truth. Daddies are cool to have, especially when they are around but, a father is that man, that pure definition of what a male with children, whether they are paternal or not, is supposed to be.
A father supports his children without being forced to. He doesn't do what he does because Family Court says so, he does it because his heart is in it completely and he wants to make a difference in the life of the children that he's responsible for. Being a father doesn't start or stop with monetary support. He supports his children morally, mentally, and in any other way that he can. he's there in some capacity each time that he's needed to be, and can be depended upon no matter what arises. He's that kind shoulder to lean on, and that stern and heavy hand when you've done wrong.
A father would never stand for being called a baby's daddy. There are far too many males in this world that accept that terms as normal. It doesn't matter if you're a young man, an old man, or in between, you need to stand up and claim your true title. Especially the young ones that have so much negative influence around them. It's time to step up and be the man that your daddies may not have been. Give your child a reason to be proud of who helped bring them into this world or who was their guide in this life. be a positive role model to those that look up to you as a father figure. Take that child under your wing and help them grow to be the men and women that others look up to and allow them to proudly proclaim, "My father taught me that!!!" Don't allow whoever is surrounding you influence you in ways that may be detrimental to your seeds. Don't be what society expects you to be simply because it's considered the norm. Go against the grain and regain your individuality. You don't have to be perfect, just be there enough to show that you want to be there. Try to always be and stand for and accomplish more than what anyone including yourself thought you could ever be. Give the real people, your true supporters, your loved ones, a valid reason to look at you and say...
Happy Father's Day!!!
