We could all use a little inspiration sometimes.

Like if you happened to be in a Goodwill store recently. You could have seen something like the following.

They carry a lot of the burden of raising a kid, and people often gloss over the fact that they even exist in such a role.

These can come in both good ways and bad ways. But the one image you’re about to see is good, through and through.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by the least likely of sources!

It’s not every day you see a dad with a doll in a cart, but there was a good reason for it. Keenan Watkins, dad to Ash and Aayla — ages nine and ten — was showing his girls exactly how far he’s willing to go to make sure his they know that when he says he’ll do something, he absolutely means it.

Goodwill employee Sadie Collins shared the story on the Love What Matters Facebook page:

The post got more than 61,000 reactions and shares, and Watkins caught wind of the post and shared his own side of the story on the Love What Matters Facebook page.

Way to go, Dad!

Everybody should aspire to be as good a dad as this guy. If they’re a dad in the first place, I mean.

You can look up to this dad even if you’re not one. And emulate his attitude.

And by “It,” I mean that’s what Goodwill is all about. Get it? Good? Will?
