Wish I Had Written This: Dads

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…- Unknown

  1. Love this!

  2. I love this!! I’m struggling a little today, being the first Father’s Day without my daddy, but I have great memories to hold onto.

  3. That is perfect and how it should be. Let kids learn from their mistakes rather than paving the way for them.

  4. I do so like this, I have an awesome day

  5. I wish my father had been like this.

  6. wonderful.
