The Words of a Father Must be Spoken…especially to daughters
My daughter: “Dad, high school is just so hard…” She says this with tears welling up.
Me: “God has made you for something special. Unfortunately, special is not going to mean easy.”
My daughter: She smirks and laughs through her swollen eyes.
