A Letter To My Daughter


“I know that one day soon you will have children and a family of your own.  I keep praying for that and I know GOD does have a great plan for your future.  I hope I have instilled in you a sense of what matters most in life.  When I am gone from this earth I hope you will reflect upon the life we have lived together.  I hope I will have left something you can hold onto that will last and that you can in some way transfer on to your own children.  I hope that you will be able to smile when you think about the times we had together.  Never forget that I love you my sweet, sweet daughter.  I know I have made some mistakes in my life.  I hope most of all that I have made a difference in your life.  I know you have made a difference in mine.  I love you forever my baby girl!”

This is a part of a letter I wrote a few years ago before my daughter was married; and now she is going to have a baby girl of her own to raise and care for.  GOD is good and he does answer our prayers in his perfect timing and in his perfect way!  And now, she has a chance to make a difference in the life of her own daughter.

    You know, Tony, your daughter is so blessed to have a father who can express his feelings for her so well. Your writing is a great way to touch the hearts of your wife, daughter and granddaughter soon to come. There are far too many men who don’t know how to say (let alone show) how they feel. I’m happy for you all. Great letter too. 🙂

  3. Beautiful. My son and wife just had a baby girl less than two weeks ago. I know how you feel and have asked God for the same blessings for my children and theirs. Yes, God is good.
