Daddy....

He was {and still is} indescribable. So I try to explain, sometimes {badly I think}, what he was 'like'.

He was {and still is} irresistibly lovable. He's been dead for almost 19 years, yet his memory is there for me {and for those who never got to meet him}.

He wanted, unlike most men, for a daughter more than a son. I was his second child, his first daughter, and was more than a son or a daughter to him always.

I was his 'Princess'; he was my father...and 'tho I am almost 42 years old, he is still my 'Daddy'....

Thank you, cru...but I feel like I don't ever do him 'justice' when I talk about him. No matter what I say, it's one of those, "You just had to have been there....".

Oh! Thanks for stopping by -- are you Yin or Yang today?

I'm glad you have the memories. I have mine too. I look so much like my dad it's uncanny. I see him in my drivers license photo in particular. I didn't have a mustache then. He didn't let his grow out to a beard or mustache.

I have the memories; now if I had the words.... Mother claims I look like her but act like him -- actually, I look like my father's mother {and damn glad of it, looking like DeDa and acting/thinking like Daddy}. Razor burn, ahhhh *giggle*...that's my Daddy! Wet willies and jumping up/smacking his ass/landing and laughing...y'all just had to be there!

Mother says I was young, but that I was NEVER a 'child'...one of the very few things she has ever been right about.... I miss Daddy, especially more so when I am trying to tell my sons about their grandfather; he was and is indescribable.

_____There seems to be a special love between a good father and his daughter. That was touching.

He wasn't the 'greatest'...as in he wasn't {couldn't be there...but he was 'there'...and still is}; he was, and is, the greatest to me, always....

I haven't had kids yet (nor do I expect to), but I helped alot (emphasis on alot) with my siblings, especially the youngest, who just had her first child, and the first grandkid for my dad. (Finally making me an uncle... I have two young cousins that refer to me as such, but this is finally official Still, there is such an underlying sadness to Father's Day in my family that I almost want to ignore it, just like parts of December and January. He thinks about his dad and my brother alot on those days, and while it has been almost 10 years now, it's still hard for him. I can't imagine how hard, nor do I want to. Me, when I think of them it is now more like how you remember your father. It's always better that way.

Especially, mzhuny, when you know that he WANTED a girl {female}.... He called me that...Princess. He was a prince, a King among men....

{Unforgettable: version with Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole, his daughter of course}

Unforgettable, that's what you are
Unforgettable, thought near or far
Like a song of love that climbs to me
Is the thought of you that stings to me
Never before
Has someone been more
Unforgettable, in every way
And forever more, that's how you stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am
Unforgettable too
No, never before
Has someone been more
Unforgettable, in every way
And forever more, that's how you stay
That's why, darling, it's incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am
Unforgettable too

I almost think of it as 'There but for the Grace of God'...although with my mother {look, dear, she learned half a word!} it definitely 'balanced' {and then some}. OTOH, if mother hadn't been such a psychotic bitch, who knows if I would have been as strong as I am {although I do believe a lot of it is genetics, foremost}. As an infant, a child, a teenager, an 'adult'...it's always too soon....

*Where are my manners?! Thanks for the light, and the post....*

This is the first time I have come across your blog so in advance I apologise for posting so late.
I too am one of the men who loves their daughter and when we planned to have a family I always said if the baby wasn't a girl it was going straight back.
But I am lucky I have my princess and best friend and she is now almost 17.

Well, brute, someone has to be 'not first', right? I have actually slowed down, quite a bit, on posting {was doing the mzhuny posting thing once a day...or more, in my case; semi-hiatus here and there now, so I have time to READ blogs, other than my own}.

Your daughter is lucky; may you both have each other, in this world, for many years to come.
