The Bond Between Fathers & Daughters

There aren’t many things sweeter than the relationship between a father and daughter. As many of you know, my father passed away last year and I’ve been in a stage of grief and mourning ever since. My dad was always there to talk to, always made time for me, always took care of me and was so selfless in our relationship. Looking back I don’t feel like I always deserved him since he was such an amazing father and I didn’t always tell him how much he meant to me. No matter how many times I screwed up in life my dad never judged me and I never felt loved any less. Trust me, I’ve made my fair share of mistakes in my youth and adult life and my dad was always there to listen and help me. My mom was always the tough parent but my dad was more laid back. If I knew I had done something really wrong, I would call him first because I knew he’d understand. I definitely miss him more than words can describe, but I am so thankful that I have the amazing relationship of my daughter and husband to watch grow for years to come. She definitely gets away with a lot more than her brother ever did and he is much more lenient with her. The bond between fathers and daughters is so magical and amazing to witness.

One of my all-time favorite songs to listen to while growing up was My Girl. There is something so classic and beautiful about the melody and the words. Last Sunday, October 8, was National Father-Daughter-Day. To celebrate these amazing relationships, American Greetings has a special ecard that you can personalize and send featuring Smokey Robinson’s version of his hit song “My Girl”. I love ecards for so many reasons. It can be hard enough to remember if I packed a snack for my kids lunches let alone if I have sent birthday and special occasion cards every month. With American Greetings, you can easily send cards anywhere in the world with the click of a button. I know not every dad is lucky enough to live near their daughter, so the Smokey Robinson ecard is the perfect solution for making your daughters day. It can also be customized for a variety of occasions. Find the Smokey Robinson ecards and more digital options for staying connected at the American Greetings website.

  1. I am sorry about your loss. May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. My dad is also the laid back one while my mom is the tough one. He’s the fun guy!

  2. So sorry to hear about your father passing last year but I totally agree with a father/daughter bonding experience. Watching my own husband and our little girl is surreal ( as is a bond with me and my son right now ). It’s so hard to explain but it’s such a blessing knowing you’re doing something right by raising your little ones! Keep it up girl!

  3. So sorry for your loss – even a year later. These photos are excellent. I know it must make you so happy to see such a strong bond between your daughter and husband!
