I went to an amazing Cafe today, Cafe Firefly. I was looking for great coffee wi-fi and a place to fill a few orders. FOUND IT!!! Love, Love, Love this place. As I settled in I found something I wasn't looking to find. I really believe those are the best times in life, when you intentional stop to really see whats going on around you.
Two very cute young ladies were on a date with their father. You might think,"big deal". Ok it is a big deal! They were having such a good time and their father was hanging on their every word. He was encouraging, and proud and I think I heard him even giggle a few times. The best thing I've heard a father say to a daughter in a long time, as she was picking up a magazine or something of sorts. "No, honey you don't need to read and look at that, those picture are put there to make you feel bad about how you look and you are beautiful, you and your sister don't need to look at those pictures." WOW!!!!! What a place this county would be if all fathers knew to raise up the daughters of this great country with such wisdom. Also, note the daughter was quick to obey with no pouting. WOW, proof this dad is consistent in his up bringing.
If you're wondering, Yes, I asked if i could snap a few Photos. I just had too.( The dad said he didn't like his pictures taken. I don't know why not, he is very good looking. But i honored his request with a far off shot.) LOL
This is important to me because, women get the correct self-image based on the confidence they feel their fathers have in them. If dad says they are beautiful and smart then proves it by taking you for hot cocco and games and cookies. Then laughing and talking to you about what is important to you, you believe and trust your father. The result is a mature health women who has the correct self image, and will seek out men who treat her the way her father did. With value and respect. Then the cycle continues.......
What can I say so refreshing, dads are so important for our daughters growing up these days. Now why does this matter to me I have two sons. Yes, I have two sons who will be dating women some day, and I am glad that there are girls being brought up by dads like this one.
FOR REAL!!!!! HOW CUTE ARE THEY!!!! Thank you "coffee date dad" keep up the good work!
