The Dad You Don’t Want To Be
The dad that can’t remember holding his little ones close because he was too busy, this is the dad you don’t want to be.
The one that wasn’t there because he put his career ahead of his family, this is the dad you don’t want to be.
The dad that was never really present, rarely ever full in the moment, hardly ever engaged emotionally. You don’t want to be this dad.
Don’t look back in twenty years with regrets and pray every day that your kids will forgive you.
Don’t reflect on your long life years from now and wish you didn’t have pain and regret in your heart.
Please don’t be this dad.
Instead be there. Fully there.
Instead, get on your knees and beg for forgiveness. Turn your heart and open it up to be changed.
Instead, look to others to help you be the dad you were born to be.
Be that dad.
Be the one that admits when he is wrong and loves even when it is not convenient.
Be that dad. Decide today.
The dad you don’t want to be- don’t be that dad.
