One of the gifts i’ve given my daughters is allowing them to see me cry. In some ways it might be a bigger gift to their future spouse/ SO’s/ etc and sons if they have them….. It’s normal for tuff dad to cry where appropriate…..They saw me lose it a few time after my oldest and dearest brother passed on this last week…. It was a deliberate choice to step of of that ever shrinking MAN Box of how a man is supposed to act……. And it allowed them to grieve with me.
