The lessons that I have learned in this life have been such a blessing because I am always in situations where they apply. It is lessons that I have learned in life that have prepared me for pain,victory, darkness and light. Being a daddy has made me a man it has made me take the right positions and make the right stands.
I take care of the seemingly little and mundane things and its when I am helping take care of someone else that my heart sings its then that it finds its melody, its when I am no longer walking and I start flying, I spread my wings.
When I am loving I am being just who I was supposed to be, I can speak too much love to ever let venom spew from me. I taught my son a lesson this morning because like his dad he is going to be prince charming, its good to be the man who can make a chilly heart start warming, its good to be the calm when the storm starts swarming. Its good to be the safe place from harm, it feels good when people want to run to your arms.
I told him the importance of the words you say, I told him you have to be the man to make the effort to brighten a woman’s day, I told him you only need to watch to find the words to say.
My little girl had just come to me because she knew if she showed me she would get a response from her daddy. It was the same sense of pride my momma instilled in me, this was another chance for me to be a branch of her tree and provide the same kind of shade to my seed.
I gave my baby the kind of love and attention that was given to me and it was not hard it comes naturally and as a result I am growing another fruit tree another something sweet another thing providing the world shelter, air and food to eat.
It lit me up inside as she walked towards me she had a smile that was impossible to hide. It was the anticipation she had because she knew the situation and this was memory driving her not manipulation she knew what her daddy would say. That’s why she had the smile on her face and I gladly did just what she knew I would, I told her she was beautiful, I told her she was wonderful, I told her she is everything good.
I made her know how I feel and I do it consistently so that she never doubts its real. I show my kids the words I say. I speak them and then I go live them in front of their faces.
I show them exactly how to love and I am not guessing, I had my momma to teach me and show me this lesson. Now I am teaching mine and as a result I am keeping my momma alive. I am sending her message on down the line, extending the whole families time.
Just a thought as I sit on my couch and think about life and try to figure it all out.
