Today, one of my favorite musicians, Kirk Franklin has his daughter getting married and he is being a typical dad about it! Most of us girls have that special bond with our fathers and can definitely relate to being daddy’s girls. Kirk Franklin pours his heart out about this on his Instagram today and it couldn’t be any sweeter!
A number of times he refers to himself as being selfish, for all the good reasons – because letting go of your little girl cam be hard. Though I may never fully understand how hard it is for a father, as I watch my husband and our 3 month old daughter, I can only imagine the difficulty that comes with letting go.
Ugh, so much feels right now with everything Kirk Franklin said today about his little girl! We can only imagine how emotional the father daughter dance would be.
Here’s Kirk Franklin’s Father daughter Moment in Words:
“She’s getting married today…..and I’ve spent an hour and a half rewriting this. Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go, ….of my little girl. I will walk her down the isle, then I will officiate the wedding. Why? Because I’m selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I don’t make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak.
God, it’s so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be. I want to go go- kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over again….just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause she’s not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one. I’m sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! I’m proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud. He comes first now. I’ll have to get use to that, cause I’m selfish, for you.
Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let go…. I’m going to try really hard,…but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretend….that I’m never letting go. Forever daddy’s girl.
A girl’s daddy.”
We wish the new couple a happy married life and dear Kirk, it’s going to be alright! She’d always be daddy’s little girl!!
