Daddy’s Hands

I was thinking about my Daddy’s hands this morning…and what they must endure to ensure that I behave myself.  While my Daddy almost always uses a paddle or strap on my naughty behind during a spanking, he usually warms my bottom up with his hand.  That doesn’t seem quite fair as it leaves his hand a little red and stingy as well, and he certainly didn’t do anything to earn that!

My Daddy has strong hands, rough hands, slightly calloused hands.  They are strong and warm.  They hold me, protect me, discipline me, provide for me.  When I think of it that way, I realize his hands are simply quite amazing.

Are you familiar with the Holly Dunn song, Daddy’s Hands?  It is a beautiful song that I can’t seem to get out of my head this morning.

“Daddy’s hands were soft and kind when I was cryin’.

Daddy’s hands were hard as steel when I’d done wrong.

Daddy’s hands weren’t always gentle but I’ve come to understand,

There was always love in Daddy’s hands.”

Have a beautiful Friday!  And submissives…kiss those loving hands that belong to your Daddy Doms…they go through a lot to take care of you properly.

  1. I like the lyrics to that song. It is actually very reminiscent of my actual father. Though he punished very rarely. I may pull those words out for use at some point in the future. Thanks Nora!


    1. No, thank you for the comment! My dad wasn’t the disciplinarian in our family while I was growing up, but I have a Daddy now with hands as hard as steel 🙂

    1. I’m not trying to invade your privacy, Mark…but I don’t really understand your comment…why couldn’t you use that song with your dad?


  2. I’ve always liked that song too but I would never use it for my own father either. I have a hard time believing there was ever really love in his hands … same reason that as much as my Sir us loving and patient, understanding and nurturing I would never call Him a Daddy. To me that’s a name that makes me wall up and go at it alone, not the other way around. I understand the sentiment of others, it just simply doesn’t work for me.
    But then, what’s in a name? ….. no?

    1. I understand what you are saying. Without going into it, my dad’s hands or attitude was not loving at all. So that song would not go with him. But I must say that they were strong. He about crushed you as you shook his hand. LOL

      1. I hear you Mark! Crushing indeed … not just your hand but soul and spirit! Mine anyway, now I’m projecting …. LOL As much as it’s nice to be understood by others, in *this* case I will say that I am sorry you know what I mean.

    2. Thank you for sharing! I can totally understand that. I think that I identify as a “baby girl” or “little” which is why my husband and I started using Daddy for him.


    1. Awww…thank you! I feel bad I haven’t written the next chapter. Life has been so hectic lately. I will hopefully have time to write a chapter this weekend!

  3. My wife hates this song because of the abusive use of her father’s hands in punishment. There was absolutely no love in anything he did as a parent. After my wife’s mother died—she was a wonderful person—he changed, and today, my wife and her Dad get along great and love each other. My father was very similar, but his abuse was not physical. So, this song for me is satirical. But I’m glad it works for you , Nora.

    1. I am feeling a little badly…it seems like many have bad associations with this song. I was fortunately to have/and still have a very loving dad…we danced to this song at my wedding.


      1. I don’t think it’s anything for you to feel badly about Nora you certainly had nothing to do with my personal take on the song, nor the other respondents I’m sure …. but I think it is interesting to see how one thing can evoke different responses.

        TBH I had been thinking about a post in regards to “my Sir is not a Daddy but … ” where I was thinking that although a lot of characteristics that I read about are present I could never use the term. It just speaks to why everyone’s dynamic is their own and it really does need to be that way! And in my view why the words are not the main thing, the intent is so much more …

        Always a pleasure to read your stuff! 😀 xo

        1. Absolutely…what I am finding (through reading the post of our peers here on Word Press) is that everyone has a very unique dynamic even if there are some commonalities. And likewise…I always enjoy reading your stuff!


      2. Don’t feel bad, Nora, songs are probably the number one trigger for most people. Stay happy that this song means so much positive for you. Though I have to wonder if your dad would say to your Daddy, ‘It’s about time you took naughtynora over your knee. Good job, son.’

      3. I am glad that you had a great relationship with your father. I wish I would have. Just not reality. For the last 6-7 months of his life we got along great. Of course he had dementia Alzheimer’s so that helped us get along better. But I I’m grateful to God that you had the kind you did have with him. I’m happy for you, I really am.

        1. Thank you, Mark. Despite the circumstances, I’m glad you got a good 6-7 months with your dad at the end. I am fortunate that my dad is still with us. He’s 64, healthy as a horse, and his favorite thing to do is to come over to my place and work on projects. He’s coming over in a few hours to help my husband split some wood on an oak tree that fell this winter. After losing my mom and younger brother this year, I feel incredibly grateful each time I see him.


            1. LOL…heck no! But, my my dad is the type who says things like “you’re not too old to go over my knee”…even though he never actually spanked us as children.


  4. And just to let you know. I wrote another story about our favorite people on my other blog. I think you missed the last one I wrote to. So this week I’ve written two of them.

    1. Both chapters are great! I read the May 8th one the other day when you posted it…my favorite line from that one is when Bret’s mom says to Bret’s dad “You are my head, my husband, my Daddy”…I’d like to start saying something like that to my husband. Today’s chapter was great too…poor Melissa! So humiliating having her Daddy and new boyfriend discuss her discipline in front of her. I also loved the part at the end…the maintenance spanking and anal discipline…I can tell you from first hand knowledge that anal discipline after a spanking leaves you feeling very contrite and submissive! Great work, Mark!


      1. I wasn’t quite sure how you would react to that one. I got the idea from a friend of mine who is trying to practice DD with her hubby. When he has done maintenance on her. He will use anal on her as well.

  5. I couldn’t help myself. I had to place some comedy in their when Jake met Melissa’s parents. I also want to make her parents more old fashioned. So I will have her mom use his full name, Jacob, and not call him Jake. I am wondering if I should have her dad just call his Boy, or something. I have heard about many men doing that with younger men, just calling them boy.

    I will be covering Melissa’s transformation from her parents discipline, which will never stop to Jake’s discipline. But their thought process is, as long as they are alive and Darlene and Melissa are their kids, they have the right to punish them if need be, like if they disrespect them or the rule s of the house. So that right there won’t go away. But I am glad you liked them.

    I can’t wait to find out how much trouble Crystal gets into as well. I am glad we can both write fiction like this. Are you going to have the character the same as me? I mean no matter if she is married or not, her parents can still punish her. I get that idea with my characters from blogs I have read, where the parents can still spank their daughters, no matter if they are married or not.

    1. I’m not sure yet…I like it both ways (parents still having the right to punish no matter what, or just the husband). I like the idea of the father handing off the discipline to his son-in-law too.


  6. I’ve often thought about that song in relation to my husband/daddy as well. I appreciate his strong hands and his love and correction.

    1. Thank you for the comment, Obedient Wife…I love your screen name! My husband chose mine, but obedient wife would suit me too (at least I strive to be obedient)… 🙂
