This is love, m'friend.

YAY!!! Oh Balladeer, this is wonderful, sweet friend, I know this feeling so very very much for I am graduating next Friday and I wonder how my parents will probably also think of me the way you do! (smiles) You are a wonderful friend and father, sweet friend, kudos to her, kudos, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Balladeer, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

Congradulations..... You have so much to be proud of, and thankful for, I have to say well done for raising such a determined young lady and must tell her how much I am proud of the way she has overcome her challenges and her critics... Bravo.

Love, Light and peace,

Sherry

Cherish the good memories past and look forward to the adventure called Tomorrow.
But above all... be kind to yourself today.

Does this mean she's legal now Mike?

Sincerely - the poem is great, but her triumph moreso. You have every right to be proud of such a fighter... you know though, she must have had some good examples to learn from.

Peace,

Chris

I'm not sure what brought tears to my eyes faster....her graduation or these replies. I want to thank you all very much for sharing in this. I would answer individually but I'm still on the road headed back to Florida with a stop in Charlotte to attend my granddaughter's first dance recital...hmmmm, could be a poem in that one, too )

  Thank you all again or being what you are and for making this place what it is

It's so great so "see" your smiling face again Michael. You are beaming beside your lovely daughter ... matter of fact, I think I see a twinkle in both of your eyes.  

This photo reflects such a heart-warming and inspirational life story ... it simply makes this picture all the sweeter.  This is truly a special piece, and I'm so glad I didn't miss reading it - you have every right to be beaming with pride my 'Deer. Beautifully composed and very moving.  

Best wishes and hugs
/Kit

Ah Michael, your daughter takes after her father (poor thing...just joking). She does indeed look like you and I see she's got her father's brains too. You must be so proud of her, not for only doing everything she was not expected to do in her life, but also for the courage to stand fast to her dreams and hopes for the future. Please give her a hug and tell her congradulations from me also. Smiling here in PA right now

Michael,
Brag on dear man, brag on! I could listen all day. And share my admiration with her, please. Congratulations to you both. Cool pics.

íDeer hi there this is quite possibly the most moving tribute and declaration of fatherly love Iíve ever seen. Your piece glows with the love you both share for each other, and this is simply breathtaking in is depiction of your daughters amazing spirit and her determination to make you as proud of her as she is of you. this is really something exceptional from a man whose normal writing is always first class. In this you have excelled even your amazingly high standard and written something that positively shines a light of love. You both obviously have the perfect father daughter relationship, and thank you so much for showing her to us, she is an inspiration indeed.

As mum says donít stop YOU have a really special gift to write.


Love and warm stuff
As always
Krissy

And while thy willing soul transpiers
