Happy Father’s Day

I have been carrying this poem in my wallet for years!  Thanks for being you Dad!


Love you,


My Father’s Daughter


My Father’s Daugher

I am my father’s daughter…
with this armor alone,
I am incredible.

Protected in the shadow of wisdom,
I grew strong of mind.
Guided through the colors of experience,
I grew strong of heart.

Inquiring with forensic precision,
I grew curious and able.
Expounding into understanding,
I grew tolerant and open.

All my fears laid out on the table,
I grew confident of love.
Flaws and foibles brought to light,
I grew to laugh easily.

I am my father’s daughter…
with this armor,
I am invincible.
