America celebrated Valentine’s Day this weekend. Although plenty of us have grown cynical over a ‘manufactured holiday’, others are taking a new approach to it to keep it fresh with real meaning.
Take this father for instance. He took his young daughter to dinner this year. We have to say this awesome. It seems the younger generations cropping up don’t know how to treat each other with respect when entering relationships, and what better way to pass knowledge on than by example?
This Dad in particular happens to be single and he took his six year old daughter to dinner. The restaurant took notice and someone penned him a note.
They mystery couple wrote:
Sorry to spy, but my husband and I saw you out with your little date and were so impressed with what a great Dad you are.
From two adults who grew up without dads, it’s so important to have a male role model at a young age.
Keep up the good work Dad!
Dinner is on us!
Sometimes all you want to be is acknowledged. The Dad posted the handwritten note to Imugr to say thanks.
As a single dad, I took my six year old daughter out to valentines dinner tonight when this happened. I wont lie, I teared up at the table. So, thank you random strangers. Thank you.
To every dad out there, keep up the hard work. We all need good role models!
