Johanna

Hello weekenders,

I recently became a father of a beautiful little girl: Johanna Misa Herman.

I haven’t wrote her anything yet, and I’d like to share my first piece with you all.

 

Johanna

 

5lbs. 13oz. You were my little angle

I looked at you and I saw a piece of me. 

Your little fingers spread wide open like the wide world you enter moment before.

Then your tiny hand closed around my finger when I put it to your hand.

You didn’t cry. You didn’t scream. You looked about. You looked right at me.

And I knew right then and there

I no longer live for myself. 

My dreams. My life. Everything I am and who I was…

It didn’t matter any longer. 

Because you were the priority. 

You were and are my little princess. 

You will always be daddy’s little girl as long as I am still here.

  1. Beautifully expressed. As the father of 5, that’s right, 5 daughters, They taught me the importance of being a good example for them. They were and continue to be a wonderful gift from God to me. Here’s hoping all the good things life has to offer flow to you and your family. Thank you for the wonderful post. Ray

  2. Thank you Ray for sharing that! I am a young new father, but I now know what it means to be a parent. I am a proud father, and I hope my daughter will look up to me as I have to my father and have her be proud of me. I am truly blessed! I not only want to be a father, but I want to be a good Dad.
