Tim McGraw's 'My Little Girl' Is The Anthem For Every Daddy's Girl, Like Me

I dedicate this to you, Dad.

Tim McGraw's 'My Little Girl' Is The Anthem For Every Daddy's Girl, Like Me

I've grown up admiring my father. A hard-working, selfless individual that does anything for his children. While he shares bonds with my brothers, the relationship we share always holds a special place in my heart. He is the man who makes me laugh on any occasion. He is the man who helps mend a broken heart. He is the man who never stops loving and supporting me.

As told by Tim McGraw's "My Little Girl," this portrays the relationship my dad and I will always share.

1. "Gotta hold on easy as I let you go."

As a father, one of the toughest ideas to grasp is that their little girl will grow up. But little do they know, we never let go of that unbreakable bond.

2. "Going to tell you how much I love you though you think you already know."

The relationships dads and daughters share is remarkable. Dads show love for their daughters in numerous ways. My dad shows his love for me by making me laugh. He tells jokes to cheer me up. My dad is supportive of my decisions and gives wise advice. Dads may not always say 'I love you,' but deep down, us daughters know and we cherish it.

3. "I remember I thought you looked like an angel."

From birth to messy eating childhood pictures. From prom day to wedding day, our dads think we are beautiful. Even at our worst moments, crying over a boy or no makeup on our faces, dads see their daughters as angels.

4. "Chase your dreams but always know the road that will lead you home again."

Eventually, that time will come for daughters to graduate, begin a career, get married and have a family of their own. Fathers want their daughters to follow their dreams. But deep down, dads want you to come to them for guidance. They want you to remember where you came from and that there is always a place for you back home.

5. "When you were in trouble that crooked little smile could melt my heart of stone."

In my childhood as a troublemaker, my dad and I look back and laugh at the mischievous wrongdoings I took part in. My devilish ways and crooked smile didn't make you stay mad at me for too long ;)

6. "Someday, some boy will come and ask me for your hand. But I won't say 'yes' to him unless I know he's the half that makes you whole."

Someday, us daughters will fall in love with someone who shares the same qualities as our fathers. As a father though, giving their daughters' hand in marriage is taken seriously. While a daughter has found her soulmate, her other favorite man will always be without a doubt her father. A father protects his daughter from a broken heart and he only gives his approval if he believes the man is worthy of his daughter.

7. "Go on, take on this world but to me you know you'll always be my little girl."

As I embark on my remaining years at Rider and my future life, I will always consider myself "Daddy's Little Girl."

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.

The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.
