Treadmill Treats Monday Message
Father’s day message: There are good men out there
With all of my dating horror stories, well okay they are not all bad, just most of them!
I always try to look at the bright side,which is that at least I get good stories to write about from them. But honestly, I truly know there are good men out there.
I was blessed enough to have 3 wonderful men in my life while I was growing up, my dad, my step dad and a incredible family friend named Sam. These 3 men were the best men I’ve ever met, they are what real men should be. The men today need to take lessons from these 3 men.
My real dad paid 100.00 a week for me, back then it was like 1000.00 today. He paid for my braces, my camp, my school clothes, dance lessons and whatever else my mom needed for me. He showed up every Sunday, every school event, every recital.
My step dad taught me to fish, to fix things, to ride a bike, he helped me with my homework, he woke up in the middle of the night to rub my legs when I had growing pains.
He never treated me as a step daughter to him I was his daughter that he shared with my dad.
Then I was blessed to have Sam, my big daddy as we called him. He was in my life as long as I can remember. He was always there to talk to, to make me laugh, he taught me to shoot pool, to read people, to believe anything was possible.
These were men of God, men of honor, men with huge hearts that weren’t afraid to show love.
So it’s not like I dont know what a good man looks like. I also have some great male friends in my life. Single dads, back when single dad’s didn’t have a name. I know hard working men, willing to help when your in a bind, I know kind and caring men who are wonderful father’s, who I am proud to call friends.
I do know that a good man is hard to find but I also know it’s not impossible as I’ve had so many good men in my life. And I know that one day when I am not looking I will find that good man and when I do, it will blow my mind.
So today my friends, remember there are good men out there, there are great father’s that we should applaud, men that stand up for their children, that do the right thing even if they aren’t biological. They are the role models that we look up to, to let us know that yes, there are great men out there. So thank you…for being the great men that you are.
Happy father’s day to all the amazing father’s out there! We are proud of you!
