Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened!"--AnonymousNo one is in charge of your happiness except you."--AnonymousI survive not by the air I breathe, nor by the food I eat, but by the love I embrace each day." "There are millions of people in this world, but in the end it all comes down to one."To be a "Dad" is really tough,not to mention kind of rough.Demanding this expecting that,trying not to be the ole doormat.No matter what the issue may be,my kids can always count on me.To be there through the thick and thin,to open my heart and let them in.Open arms and a open mind,really helps when being kind.The day your child is finally born,your heart becomes suddenly torn.Between the masculine guy you were,to having all this love for him or her.A love so deep and ever so strong,hoping they will never do wrong.But, this we know is the impossible dream,soon we discover they even scream!Then we see that they are people too,and hope they turn out just like you.Again we see that this is fiction,and pushing to much can cause some friction.So, back to having that open mind,will surely pay off in due time.Now, no matter what they say or do,take the time to say "Love you."And when they can learn to say it back, you know you got them on the right track.The track of love, caring and concern,the lessons of life, they live and learn.And when they grow and have kids of their own, they'll share the same love that their father has shown.
