When a child comes into this world, you would hope they are received by a loving mother or a doting father. No matter your own upbringing, one needs to reflect on how they were raised to help the next generation. I would assume if it was horrible, your actions as an adult with a child would not lead you to introduce that kind of stress upon them. If it was great, then one can assume you have the tools to help your child with a positive outlook on life. The images here, two to be exact, of this beautiful talent with her father are poignant for many reasons.

At birth, a man saw a little girl. She was small, holding his finger and looking around the hospital room till she locks onto his eyes, her father's. What to say to the many born who look around and do not see the "Creator", their father?

Growing up, the little girl wants to dance with her father and twirl singing songs with a flower in hand. Great fairytale, yet some kids actually get that happy tale. It tends to turn out well, though there are hurdles, they are better set up to handle them.

Now it is over protective daddy watching his daughter grow, while snarling at the guys while he walks behind her. Yet, when he is with her as they bond, the look of endearment are hard not to notice.

In her adult years, she is now a woman who has had her father with her every step of the way. Guiding, teaching through actions observed and direct expression. She is ready to be handed off and the one to take over as her protector has big shoes to fill. Her "Maker" has given the lucky young man a responsibility he made sure she saw ample example of.
