Dads Do The Most





Dirty clothes, dusty boots. Harry face, nappy roots. Ashy elbows, peeling hands. Everything I love about a man. But what I love most, other than one who works hard, is the man who doesn’t end the day without at least acknowledging his kids. A man who works sun up to sun down does not have much leisure time, but his children sure feel his presence and love when he tucks them in at bed time. Consequently, I call him dad…

Daddy, you don’t have to be in love with mommy to love me. I understand. Some things just can’t be worked out. Relationships are not promising, but your time for me should never be compromised. Any man can father a child, but only a real man can bear the weight of responsibility.

A father is the man responsible for giving children their genetic makeup. A dad does the latter and takes full responsibility for raising the child. The two are not interchangeable because one plays a more important role. A dad can father a child, but a father does not automatically become a dad. He has to earn that title. Men, you should never want to be classified as just a father because you are depriving yourself of some good years.

To all men who have stepped up to the plate and live up to their responsibility, you are the most prominent male role models of society. This includes step-dads, uncles, coaches, mentors and anyone who plays the role of a daddy.

“You are the kings of the nations, the cream of the crop, the gift that keeps on giving, and the bow that sits atop.”

“I know there’s a lot of pressure, but keep doing what you do. Your seeds will become blessings, and your kids will honor you.”

And remember…
“Make sense of what you do, and make every cent count.”

You are the Father!

It was a cold winter night. You were drinking. So was she. One thing led to another, and your lover conceived. When she tells you she’s pregnant, you reply, “For me?” If chickens can lay eggs, then so can she. No protection was used, yet you are wondering how it’s possible. If you would have put down that bottle, you wouldn’t have to face this obstacle.

Men, you have to take responsibility for your actions. You can enjoy the company of a female without getting her pregnant. If you didn’t trust her, then why did you sleep with her, let alone fail to use protection? Do you think you are exempt from catching STDs? There is no cure for HIV. And if there is, you probably can’t afford it. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be all tense behind taking care of a child you claim is not yours. Women have it hard enough having to carry the child. It puts even more stress on her when the man she slept with denies her child.

Don’t let a one night stand turn you into a father you are not ready to be. That’s why there are so many illegitimate children in the world seeking the love and attention missing from the absent parent. This is especially true for young women. Do you ever wonder why some girls are easy or always have their hands out? It’s because a daddy is the first man in a girl’s life. He spoils her and treats her like a princess. When she becomes a woman, she doesn’t settle for empty love and does not need your handouts. The absence of this kind of love leads to a broken heart and empty pockets. Every female is different, of course, but this is true for many.

So if you are not ready to man up and take responsibility, keep it in your pants or wear protection next time. If you could never see yourself building a family with her, don’t even take the chance.

And remember…
“Make sense of what you do, and make every cent count.”
