It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of encouragement to start your week off right.
This week’s words of motivation: A Father’s Love.
In this 3 minute video, we see a story of a mute and deaf father struggling to gain love and acceptance from his only child: his daughter. His daughter, who is also struggling to gain love and acceptance from her peers, cannot accept the hard truth of her father’s imperfections. And in doing so, she not only ignores her father but takes her own life. When her father discovers her body on the floor, he rushes her to the hospital; but is unable to communicate to the doctors for help. Struggling to communicate to the doctors of what he needed, we see a flashback of all the wonderful times that he and his daughter have spent before this tragic incident. And in the end, we see her father, tragically, give his own life to save the child that he loved so much.
Like the video says,
“There is no such thing as a perfect father; but there is one that loves you more than anything and would give his own life for you.”
Being a father is never easy, nor is being a Mother. However what I have learned through the course of my life [through the teachings of God and Mestre Preto Velho], is to never disrespect the hand that fed you. Not every father is perfect and not everyone has a father, but there are fathers, and father figures, that have laid down their lives in order to save those that they really loved the most.
And so this week, learn from this video and remember that no one is perfect–and that physical disabilities does not make you incompetent. Instead practice selfless and appreciate those who do have physical disabilities and are able to take care of the ones that they really loved the most.
