I came across a card today which was tucked away in a drawer. It was from my Dad on Valentine’s Day many years ago. He never forgot my Mom or my sister, brother and I on that special day each year.
Finding that card today reminded me how special the relationship is between a daughter and her Dad. He is her first hero and her first Valentine.
We can see how our granddaughter’s melt our son’s and their Pop Pop’s hearts. You can say, “They are wrapped around their fingers.” (However, I must admit our grandson’s have me wrapped around their fingers!)
Our son and many Dad’s across the Country will be taking their daughters to Father-Daughter dances this weekend. I know our granddaughter’s are so excited to be going to the dance tonight with their “Daddy.” They have their pretty dresses picked out and are ready to go. They will be making memories that they will keep in their hearts forever.
They didn’t have those dances in school when I was growing up. But it seems like such a beautiful thing to do and gives Dad’s and their daughters a special memory. It also gives Mom’s and their son’s a special time to share:-)
Happy Valentine’s Day to all Mom’s and Dad’s, son’s and daughter’s husband’s and wives, and lovers all over the world. Enjoy the dance, it will be a memory that will live on forever.
