A dad is someone who

-is a daughter's first love
-will be there for you no matter how bad of a mistake you've made
-will stand up for you when you need him
-will give you their hugs and shoulders to cry on
-promises you that you will always be his little girl
-loves you so much and will sacrifice whatever it is to make you happy again


A father is supposed to be the one man who will never give up one you ...

I hope I've not misunderstood, but this resonated with me. All the things a father's supposed to do and be...

Yes, the list is long and our expectations are high.

Perhaps we ask a lot of them.

But when, after 50 yrs your father appears to give up on you just when you probably need them most, is a lesson in life very hard learned.

My Dad wasn't there for a lot of my life - not his fault as my parents divorced when I was 8 or 9. I can forgive him for that.

But, at a low point aged 50, when I most needed my Dad he decided I was too much like hard work.

That feels very different and difficult to forgive. Not sure if I can.

Struggling to find words for a father's day card...

Thanks
