Strong men skilled in dealing with life protect with instinctive ease the beauty that is theirs. And behind them me - following for a few stolen moments, watching.



It is the dance of fatherhood. The innocence of youth. The hand that always knows just exactly where you are...

Sweet post, Allison. It made me teary-eyed thinking about my Dad. My father and I had a strong bond.
I miss him so much, but this makes me know all the more to never take any moment for granted.

Hugs

I love seeing daddies with their babies! And even cuter when it's a big manly daddy with a little girly girl. ;)
