Last night I fell asleep watching the GOP Debate (Go Cruz!!!) and totally missed this American Idol awesomeness – the performance of Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson.
Thankfully it was all over my Facebook newsfeed this morning.
Being a girl who had “daddy issues” and having a daughter who has “daddy issues”, this performance really struck a nerve. A good one. I hope my daughter does know that despite “daddy issues”, I always put her first. She was wanted and she was mine. Daughters are the BEST!
Another thing I liked so much about this performance was the tribute to husbands and fathers (and stepfathers) everywhere who DO NOT leave their post. There are good men out there. I know because I work with them and I’m now married to one. I see these men raise their children daily and do a fine job at it.
Finally, the song kind of reminded me of the Chris Tomlin song Good Good Father. The song is a little slow for my taste but the lyrics are great. And despite “daddy issues”, we all DO have a GREAT heavenly father. God is the best dad ever!
