A Dad's Love, A Father's Love, A Father's Thoughts, Being A

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 16, 2014

Twenty three years ago, the Lord decided to bless me with the first of my two sons. Needless to say, I have enjoyed every second of my life being a father and, most importantly, a dad to my boys. To be able to be a good example of the Lord, give Godly advice, and love them unconditionally is the best gift that I could ever be to them.

In my opinion, being a REAL dad is so much more than just saying that I am one…it is showing my children how much I love them by the things that I do with them and way that I show them my love. It’s sacrificing the time I have and things that I want to... (more)

The Boy With A Golden Heart

By Coach Phatty, published on Mar 23, 2014

What would you buy if you found a random $20 bill in a parking lot? One 8-year-old from Ohio bought a lifetime of inspiration for hundreds of thousands of people and one soldier in particular. You have to see what he does. This boy was raised the right way! God bless him and our military and their families. By the way…you may want to have a box of tissues nearby. —– Source: komando.com

A Child's Love

By Coach Phatty, published on Jun 16, 2013

A little while ago I read the following story (by John Pasko) that greatly touched my heart and once again made me aware how one of America’s biggest epidemics can affect anyone at any time. It is my hope that it will make you think about this problem and educate others to the importance of trying to prevent tragedy’s like this to happen.

I was walking around in a Big Bazar store shopping, when I saw a Cashier talking to a boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old. The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll. Then the little... (more)

A Box of Kisses: Words of Regret

By Coach Phatty, published on Apr 14, 2013

...

The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy." The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The... (more)

The Ghost Dance - a father remembered.

By iancochrane, published on Feb 19, 2013

‘I have sent for you and I am glad to see you. I am going to talk to you after awhile about your relatives who are dead and gone.’ – Wovoka, Paiute Indian prophet – Walker Lake, Nevada, USA (1890)

From Pierre I catch the first available flight to Los Angeles, then home to find my father frail and tired beyond his years. He whispers something in a raspy voice. Leaning closer, I can’t make anything out. Tufts of grey hair sprout from his nose. There’s no follow-up sentence, and he drifts off into some morphine-laced dream.

That night I dream of a father I never really knew, and... (more)

A Father and a Dad

By Randy Mitchell, published on Jun 13, 2012

In the spirit of Father’s Day, I’ve decided to begin by telling the tale of one of the best.

My father was born in the early 1930’s among the rolling hills of Arkansas, went to that state’s great university, served in the U.S. Air Force as a Sergeant during the Korean War, was employed for thirty plus years in the pharmaceutical industry after college, became married and stayed devoted to my mom for over forty years, was active in church, social organizations, and a dedicated father to my sister and I. He suddenly passed away in 2002, leaving behind his family, many friends, and a legacy... (more)

Parental Alienation, Father's Day 2012

By Matthew D., published on May 30, 2012

Since Father's Day is nearing, I thought it would be a good time to write a brief submission on Parental Alienation, or PA for short.

I want to make clear that PA not only affects fathers, but mothers, and grandparents as well. Of course the child(ren) that are involved are negatively affected by PA.

What is PA? According to Dr. Richard Gardner who coined the phrase Parental Alienation, defines it:

“As any constellation of behaviors, whether conscious or unconscious, that could evoke a disturbance in the relationship between a child and... (more)

Jail Bird Part 2

By Inmyredhead, published on Mar 24, 2012

...wants to see him dead, why do I love him?

Talk about twisted and conflicted. I may not be the epitome of emotional stability, but some times I think it's a damn miracle that I hold myself upright at all. I spent the rest of my childhood and most of my teenage years pining for the father that got away. Eventually, I was able to realize it wasn't HIM that I needed and so longed for in my life. It was simply the lack of that ideal experience of a father daughter relationship that plagued me. I came to see him for the ill representation of fatherhood that he was. My heart only... (more)

NEWLY BORN MOTHER

By Uttam Gill, published on Dec 23, 2011

...month of existence kisses the sunlight first time

The conspiring creator defy the physical agony of this lady

Lady, few hours ago turn into a mother

With nameless emotions and marching order in his utterance

The befitting arrogance of the one who refuse to be a father

Refuse to hold the promises and refuse to be a man

The man with revolting strictures dancing on his face

Dance of a man who refuses to be a man

Life is in hurry so he orders for immediate evacuation

The man evict her from the comfort to be driven in... (more)
