Daddies

Every girl wants the perfect Daddy-Daughter relationship.

Mother-Daughter relationships are more complex, more volatile, and more true than that of Daddies and Daughters. Daddies and Daughters reside in a fantasy land, where everything is butterfly kisses and tea parties and bear hugs. Mothers teach you how to be a woman, how to be strong, how to relate to those around you. Daddies let you be a little girl, a little spoiled, a little princess.

And the pinnacle of that relationship, whether it's true or a fairy tale, where even if your Daddy is less than you want him to be, is walking down the aisle with him.

Eli, I'm sorry. {{hugs}} to her...my dad died 2 weeks before Christmas when I was 12. While riding home from the hospital, I remember thinking, "Who will walk me down the aisle?". The morning of my wedding, I felt as if a window had been opened in heaven, giving my dad a chance to smile on me. I hope that your friend has a beautiful day. C
