Weekly photo challenge: layers

Outside Looking In

The relationship between a father and his daughter is indeed comprised of several Layers. His influence on her will shape her self-esteem, self-image, confidence, and provide a foundation in which to build one’s life. However, beneath all of that, under that trust, care, respect, forgiveness, and tension which encompasses the everyday lives of the two, is quite simply the love that began it all. Yet, this connection between father and daughter is never without its flaws. While I cannot speak for them all, in my perspective, I believe that these two individuals at some point in their lives will greatly need each other. However, in order to achieve this notion, one must be willing to strip away his or her Layers of pride and dignity, for it’s only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it’s only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. To her the name of father was another name for love. ~ Fanny Fern. If you do see yourself in one of these pictures and would like to have it taken down for personal reasons, please comment and I’ll be happy to do so.

  7. I like Fanny Fern. I like what you say about father’s and their daughters. I would like to have a daughter one day, play baseball with her, work on a car with her, do everything I might do with a son. And then more.
