As promised we will be hearing from Jordan from time to time! Jordan is not only my lovely 14 year old daughter but is also is a very talented writer. I am Jordan’s biggest fan, hopefully she will pen some poems for us too! Sadly Jordan has gone through some tough times in her life and I have asked her to write about her journey. I hope it inspires you & helps anyone out there who has experienced pain in the area of their father’s love. So without further ado her is Jordan’s first post.
Hi 🙂 My name is Jordan, as you might have guessed by the title of this post I’m going to be writing about dads andfathers. Not only will I be talking about my biological father, but I’ll be talking about my spiritual Father : Daddy in heaven, my step father and other father figures who I look up to.
I’m going to spread this journey out over a few weeks to give you time to take it all in (it’s a long but AMAZING journey of healing and forgiveness).So, lets get started!
I never knew there was anything wrong with my parents marriage, well, not until my mum moved out. I don’t remember having the situation explained to me, but that could just be because I was so young. My parents thought I was old enough to handle it, but really I didn’t even know what was going on. I don’t think it’s their fault though, going through a divorce must be one of the hardest things on this planet, and when you’re going through it, it must be hard to focus on a lot besides paperwork and the pain it causes to leave what you promised to be a life long commitment.
Me and my sister lived with my dad for a while, but I’ve only realised now, it was my mom that looked after us. She would write us a letter every week on fun paper and she phoned us almost every night to make sure we knew she loved us and to make sure we had everything we needed. Don’t get me wrong, my dad cooked for us, took us to work with him and made sure we got to bed on time, he was a good father to us, but we were all he had, he didn’t have much choice but to be a good father, he loved us and he says he still does…
More to come, I just wanted you to get a taste of my story.
Love Jords 🙂 x
