My Dad and Me, Years Ago

Monday, March 22, 2010

You have read here, often, about my dad. The way he daily tends my mother's grave. The way he insists on goodness for each of his three children. The support he extends. The vacations he sends us on.

This past weekend, my dad gave me another, gigantic gift—an evening I will never forget. He shared as well the book of photos he's been making for me these past many weeks—an album of memories, from days long gone.

Here is one of those memories. My dad and me, on my eighteenth birthday. Everyone who meets us says at once, You are so your father's daughter. This weekend a friend of mine said, Your dad makes me miss mine.

That's very sweet. It's a wonderful legacy.

Look at that - what a priceless photo. I love that your dad is a sneaky-sentimental-gift maker.

So glad you had a magical evening!

What a lovely post. Makes me wish I could see my dad more often.

Yes ... what your friend said, exactly. Makes me miss mine too.

What a truly precious gift to receive. I'm so happy that you have such a beautiful connection with your father. Even though my dad is gone, I still feel that connection often.

What a pretty 18 year old girl :)

There's nothing better than old family photos. Your dad is wonderful. You truly are your father's daughter.
