    I want my _____________________________________ (Daddy was what I wanted) but what was missing from your life as a child?

    I wanted my Daddy because I was a daddy girl but he never knew that because He wasn’t there to share my life story are gifts that I had. This is what was missing from my life and I believe caused me to do the things that I did because my mother was so strict and she never let me do anything as a child. I was made to raise a child before having my very own and the first baby I had to take care of was my nephew who turned out to be the best nephew every but then I was burned out with being a mother by the time I became a mother I didn’t want to anymore but God. Changed my mind when I saw my oldest and firstborn for the first time he and his brother are the best things that have every happeon for me and to me.

    What was missing for me is the sisterly love and bond I thought I was to have with my sister. Instead I felt like she was mad and jealous that I came because the focus shifted. I just wanted a big sister to love on me, talk to me about boys, go shopping, us doing hair and nails, etc.

    I wanted to be loved like my dad loved me, I belive his unconditionally with his opened arms spread wide open, there was nothing I could have done to make his love change.

    I believe that, I sought after his love in many people, my dad was so humble, gentle and kind, his love is everlasting, I believe Dad’s love lives in me my Father showed, me a earthly father’s love.

    Were as I knew my mom loved me, but she had to be more stern, mom had so many of us she just couldn’t love like dad, her love had to flow in so many of us, were as I was his only daughter at that time he could just pour into me, I believe I was the apple of my dad’s eye, I know he treated me like a beautiful princess even in my adulthood, after my other beautiful little sister, came along, dad never changed his love for me.

    Lord, I truly miss my dad.

    I wanted my _____________________________________ (Daddy was what I wanted) but what was missing from your life as a child?

    I wanted my life to be like other children. Other children had money in their purses and pockets. I never had money to buy things; not even candy. I ocassionally got 50 cents here and there to go to the corner store, but that was it. I wanted to be more relaxed when playing and having fun. I always had to be careful and not mess up my clothes; even play clothes. Mama seemed to be the dictator in the family. If daddy had any say-so, it was determined in private between them.

    I always had my daddy (I was 43 when he passed); but I so wish he could have been around when I got saved. Oh what a time I could have had sitting and talking with I’m then!!!

    What I was missing in life as a child was being taught about finances, marriage, and just being firm rather than subtle with advice. When I graduated from high school, I had no idea what was next. I just took things one day at a time and that is how my life has been, to this day.

    I lost my mother in a car accident along with my 4 year old sister when I was 8. I was adopted soon after into my older sisters paternal family. I missed my mother, I missed what was my normal life with my 2 sisters. I missed my family, my grandmother and my aunts and uncles that I was forbidden to visit. I missed my room, my home and my life. I searched for my mom as a kid hoping one day she would come get me as she always did. I could not grasp death at this age. It left a big whole in me until God healed me and embraced me as his daughter. He nurtured me and filled me with his unlimited love. When I was young, I was a “Mama’s Girl” today I’m a “Daddy’s Girl”. He’s my forever father.
