Tender Memories

Tender.... those moments when you remember as a child falling down and your parents picking you up and holding you in their arms and brushing awy your tears.
Tender...when you get your first "A" as you enter your grade school years..and the warm fuzzy feeling of the hugs you get.
Tender... when you were stood up on a date...and your dad took you out instead...but was smart enough not to mention "that he knew."
Tender...when you finally marry and dancing with your father to "Daddy's little girl."
Tender...as you have grown into an adult and you hold your Dad's hand, knowing it may be the last time you ever feel his touch.
Then through that hand you recall all those tender moments in life.
Ok... this was my first link up with for 5 minute Friday
Thank you.....I needed this today. 


  1. Very beautiful! I love the photos in the last post, too! Anything about the sea...I love! ♥

  2. Very nice...reminds me of my own Daddy.

  3. Your relationship with him sounds so close. Sending prayers to you and him.

  4. So beautiful, brought tears to my eyes knowing how much I am daddy's girl, my heart breaks for you.
    Sending you lots of hugs.

  5. A Beautiful Post! Yes, I remember those Tender Moments growing up. Thanks for stopping by with encouragement... I must say that Cats are far easier to raise than Kids or Men *Winks*... but, the Young Prince is now over whatever ailment he had, The Aunt took Mercy upon my Soul and took the Beast Princess for the weekend... and the VA gave The Man some good Meds and a Tens Unit {don't know if I spelled that right, but you know what I mean! LOL} so his suffering is alleviated and thus, so is mine! *LOL* I'm definitely not Called to the Nursing Profession, my Florence Nightingale impersonation is rather raw than refined... and in hindsight the whole crazy week is hilarious... once I step back and take MYSELF out of the Moment and look back on it! *Winks* Tricia officially gave me my Sainthood... and I kinda like the ring of Saint Dawn... busy polishing my new Halo this evening now that I've got a quiet Moment! *Smiles* Dawn... The Bohemian

  6. Sending prayers and thoughts to you. When we are young we think they will go on forever... I've been reading some of your older posts. It's such a tough time for you, keep strong, have faith... There are people all around the world who have you in their thoughts. xx
