It is within the bounds of a moment, that a man can see his true calling, his true worth, his reason for existence.  Once these truths have been addressed, and acknowledged, a man can never dismiss them, and can either conceal them in his heart, or wear them for all to see.  Knowing your place in this universe is not a bad thing, it is not a good thing, it’s an “IS” thing.  As Feng Shui has an understood energy flow, so does the Love of a Father for his Child(ren).  As with the tenants of many things in life, fighting established truths is neither useful nor efficient. Move with your truths, and work with their energy in such a way as to blend its momentum and your guidance to influence how they influence you. 

My Life, My Sun, My Guide, My heart, My understanding, my breath, my heart beat, my soul…….My Daughter.  I love you with all the power I possess.  I need you as much as any man can truly need. Today I will do the things that make you smile.  The things that make you proud of your “Daddyman”.  To be the man you measure all other men. With every breath, and every effort, I will be the man You have made so proud.  You are a loving, wonderful, beautiful, capable, exceptional young woman.  I am thankful for you.  You make me feel alive.  You are on the road to Colorado, at this very moment.  While the pain I feel in my heart is tearing me to pieces and has brought me to my knees, I wouldn’t trade this love in my Soul for you.  I would feel this pain for a million life times, just to know You Love me too.  You have always been, always are, and always will be the reason I Am.
