From my little princess

Nicole, age three, saw me open my blog and started dictating.
"Tinker Bell has wings, and flap wings like that. (She flapped her arms and conked me on the shoulder, then she laughed out loud). Tinker Bell's so soft. Tinker Bell's a princess. Me too, I'm a princess. Daddy says I am a princess. Tinker Bell (has) brown hair in a pony tail like me."

Every little girl should have someone in their lives who believes that she is a princess. So many women have issues with their fathers. I see it all the time. Their unresolved issues mainfest in physical and emotional problems.

Whether it is something your father did or didn't do, whether he was in your life or not, forgiveness is the first step toward moving forward and healing. I was fortunate to have a good dad. I am so proud of my son for being the fantastic father that he is.

Today, send a card, letter or prayer on your father's behalf.

Every little girl should be a princess!

It is so important that they have a positive self esteem as they grow. Maybe with higher self worth they will be less likely to do stupid stuff that would hurt them. We have to do our part for sure.

Fortunately, I was blessed with a wonderful dad, and my hubby has been a marvellous dad to our two daughters. It must be awful as a little child, growing up without that love and support from a dad.

I had a good dad. And now, since 2007, I've been convincing The Mister that I am indeed a princess (with very little success)...but it hasn't deterred me yet.

Yes, Nicole will be able--many years from now--to choose a decent person for a partner, because she has such great parents as models. (She could be in commercials with those eyes!)

Thank you for the reminder. My father was not the best of dads, but I know he tried--he is dying now in a nursing home and so I try to send out notes now and then. Will today!
