You're so right, Charlotte. I bet a letter would be so much more appreciated than a silly card, or even a mushy one. I know my Dad would love it. Thanks for the prompt.


Funny you should talk about letters in your blog today. I was just thinking about letters yesterday....but in a different way. I so enjoy the few letters I have kept from my parents both of whom are now gone. I realized it has been quite a while since I have written my daughter a real letter. I need to go back to doing that.

What an adorable picture of you and your dad. Great message.


Love this sweet post Charlotte, such a precious photo of you and your daddy. I grew up in a family where very little was ever spoken (or written) and I feel the weight of missed opportunities, especially being the last one left in my immediate family. Trying to do better each day now ...

Such a wonderful post. Several years ago I sent my Dad a typewritten father's day card in which I listed the many ways I appreciated what he has meant to me over the years. He is 91 now and his vision is bad thus the typewritten note. He can read on a special machine. Some months after that he told me that he had kept it by his machine to read periodically. I was so touched as he is rarely very sentimental with us.
