A Father’s Love Read Count : 7

Some say men don’t show emotions, but when Ricky was holding his baby for the first time he showed many emotions. Words weren’t needed and the smile on his little baby boy face lit the room up. It was as real as it gets. While Ricky was setting on the couch holding his little boy, he  counted his fingers and toes. The newborn smell, expression, funny little noises and super soft skin. The look of love and pride on his face, shows how powerful love can be. 
A daddy is one who stands strong and solid, seemingly invincible to the world and it’s many issues. Someone that nobody can break and who leads by example. Someone who has all the answers, or at least knows the direction and connection in order to solve problems. This describes Gaige’s daddy, Ricky. He died of a massive heart attack not long after Gaige was born. Ricky did get to spend a few months with his son before his death on August 16, 2017. Sadly,  he never got to spend one birthday, or holiday with his baby boy. There’s a picture of his daddy that hangs in the hallway on the wall, and when my Aunt Julie goes to get Gaige for visitation and he see’s his daddy’s picture hanging on the wall, he points and says daddy! Hearing daddy coming from that sweet baby’s mouth is heartbreaking. Ricky only had a short time with his son, but the time he had it never went wasted. Ricky and Gaige’s love for one another was unconditional. Those of you who see and talk to your daddy, either today or just once in awhile....Cherish it because you have something more valuable than you know.
