Marrying My Father

The title is a little weird i know.

When I was a little girl i was in love with my father.
I wanted to marry him.
He was the only person on planet earth that could do no wrong.
His word was the word of deity.
everything and anything that came out of his mouth was the absolute truth.

If we were walking outside and he told me the sky is purple not blue i would have believed him.

If I could worship anyone other than god id build a temple around my father and worship at his feet.

He was perfect.

My super hero. There is nothing in the world that he could not do.

He knew all the answers to every question , and he can do the most complicated mathematical equations in his head.

I used to wonder why my father wasn't king of the world, cause he could fix everything and make the world a better place.

He was definitely king of my world.

I was 100 percent daddy's girl.

And then i grew up..

I discovered my dad was only human, and he makes mistakes like everybody else.
he could not fix everything and anything..

Of course his mistakes no matter how minor, were amplified 10000 times over.

But even with this painful discovery, I still learned a valuable lesson from my father.

If my father is human, then every body else definitely is,
if my father can make mistakes, then everybody in the world makes mistakes too.
Cause their mere mortals and my father is the king.

and if i can forgive the rest of the world for their mistakes
then i can certainly forgive my father.


No man on this planet can ever measure up.

There are a lot of good men for their families and that is how the kids see them! As u said, every person is human and makes mistakes like you said!

That is so sweet! I wish I could have the father daughter moments with my dad. He is way busy :(

September 28, 2009 at 1:29 PM  

it pretty much sounds like you're still a daddy's girl, but only a little more realistic at it :p

Allah Y5aleekum 7ag Ba3a9'.

Very beautifully written!

September 29, 2009 at 10:39 AM  

This is very sweet and touching, though I have to say hun the title and the first coupla sentences were a bit incestuous and disturbing.

September 29, 2009 at 11:01 AM  

Yup, dads are awesome!

and that they need our help sometimes :)

October 1, 2009 at 5:23 AM  

Really touchy!
I miss my dad..
I guess every girl dreams that she gets married to someone like her dad
I've been always dreaming for this..
Allah ya36eech ely fee galbech inshalla oo e5alee lach ur dad

October 1, 2009 at 10:57 AM  

U sound like me .. Daddy's little girl ..

Don't u sometimes wish that u could still B that little girl .. & never grow up .. that u wouldn't have discovered such things ?

u know, it's really nice that u have the will in ur heart to 4give him .. 4 forgiving the one person u love the most isn't at all easy .. it takes time


October 1, 2009 at 1:24 PM  

That's nice! :)

October 1, 2009 at 1:56 PM  

dads, can kill them can live without em, well thats just me talking :P

I used to think mom was superwoman! The feeling that there is someone that can fix ANYTHING for you was very nice, until I grew up :(

Three days ago, I could only search for my Filipino/Tagalog novel, "Marrying My Father" so I got curious when I read your post. For a second, I thought my story has been plagiarized but thanks God,it's not...:)

wow...this is great!

Loved the lines..:)
"I used to want to marry my father now that I've grown up,
He's the last person I wanna marry."

For a second, I thought my Filipino/Tagalog was plagiarized because of the title. But you proved me wrong.

This is actually a great post!

It made me realize I'm not good enough toward my father.

Thanks for this wonderful post!
