They work tirelessly toward fulfilling two roles for their children, always trying to step into the shoes of the other parent who is never there. Whole world still believes it takes a mother to bring up children. To tell the world what a Men can Do for their child a daughter has written a heartwarming letter to her single father, thanking him for being the perfect dad he was to her and it’s making people realize how important it is to appreciate our parents. The letter ends with a beautifully written thank you note that will remind you of all the little things your parents have done for you! Here’s the full letter that was originally posted on Love What Matters.
“Single dads don’t get the credit they deserve; especially mine and all dads who are left playing both roles. There was never a time in my childhood where I truly thought I was missing out on anything. My dad was so good at fulfilling both roles and making sure my childhood was as normal as possible; that there was never a time I thought Life or God had screwed me over. My dad handled everything: periods, shaving, broken hearts, catty girlfriends – you name it and my dad took it like a champ.”
She wrote a special Thank You Note for her Single father and its amazing that will definitely melt you hearts:
“Today at Meijer, I walked up to select my shaving cream and overheard a mother talking to her daughter about shaving her legs. It was her first time shopping for razors, and her mom was explaining what kind of razor she needed, how to shave her legs, etc. I felt that little punch in the gut that I normally feel when I see a mom and daughter doing mom and daughter things. I can’t help it.
You’d think after 14 years without mine, seeing someone with their mom wouldn’t make me sad or jealous, but it just does. This time, however, I couldn’t help but giggle. I shared this with my Dad. I’ll never forget the look on my dad’s face when I told him I wanted to shave my legs.
It was the summer after mom died and some of the girls I went to summer camp with started teasing me about my hairy legs. I remember coming up to dad and being so embarrassed to ask him for help. But he handle it like a champ!
For a moment he put his head down; and then he turned the TV off, took me into the bathroom, gave me a new blade on his razor, gave me his shaving cream, and taught me how to shave my legs.
