Well, yesterday was Father's Day but for me it was just another day. However, Father's Day has some significance in my life. If it wasn’t for my oldest daughter, I would still be average. When my daughter, Danica, was born, I put my foot on the accelerator to start making serious money to provide for my family. Often, I find myself regretting the fact that I became a father because these kids must grow up surrounded by a bunch of idiots. This world is not a kind place and I wish I could shelter them from the evil that they will experience.
I donated a large amount of money to my oldest daughter’s school to use for supplies and programs. In return, she was able to be "Principal of The Day." I wanted her to experience something no other kid would and to show her that her father could make anything happen, even being 2,500 miles away. It was also for me to show myself that, if I do not work hard, my kids wouldn’t not be able to do these things. As "Principal of the Day", Danica oversaw lunch and recess duty, helped in the office, visited the school nurse, ordered supplies, and prepped the perfect attendance awards.
These photos below are priceless to me. When you look at these photos what do you see?
Look at the photo of all the kids looking at my daughter. (center of attention)
Look at the photo of my daughter standing during lunch watching while the other kids are sitting. (position of power)
I am setting the stage for my daughter.
The only problem she will have in her life, considering she has my DNA, is she will have to face only one enemy and that's the thing in between her ears.
Everyday is Father's Day.
It's not what we will do for our kids, but what we wont do.
I can't seem to think of anything I am not willing to sacrifice for my kids.
