They say that from the instant he lays eyes on her, a father adores his daughter. Whoever she grows up to be, she is always, to him, that little girl in pigtails. She makes him feel like Christmas. In exchange, he makes a secret promise not to see the awkwardness of her teenage years, the mistakes she makes or the secrets she keeps. Some fathers may enjoy the pedestal their daughters place them on, but the best ones step down and allow their flaws to be seen. It is from these unsung fathers that daughters learn what’s most important in this life – how to embrace joy, how to endure sorrow and how to live each day to the fullest … not knowing which of those two is on the horizon.
