Love From Daddy's Lillte Girls!

This past holiday season our family celebrated my dad's 80th birthday! One of my sisters wrote our father a letter that she read to him which brought tears to all our eyes!!!
Mom and Dad!

Then it was my turn...I sang a song to my dad that I had written for him many years ago. My sisters joined in during the chorus!

"Love from Daddy's little girls"
Buttons and bows and painted toes
And frilly pinafores
It's all just for him and a silly grin cause no one loves him more
Than Daddy's little girls

We remember these times of nurseries and rhymes
Upon our Daddy's knees
A hug and a kiss or a scolding of his, both with love shinning through
For Daddy's little girls

The love he has shown now that were grown holds special memories
There's a place in our heart, Daddy's part, that grows stronger everyday
Love from Daddy's little girls

A white lacy grown on Daddy's arm, to someone waiting there
A smile on his face but a tear in his eye
When he thought he'd said good bye
To Daddy's little girls

A baby or two, then they grew
Then one more on the way
It's starting again and it's all just for him
Cause no one loves him more
Than Grandpa's little girls

The love we have known. now that we've grown holds special memories
There's a place in our hearts, Daddy's part that grows stronger everyday
Love form Daddy's little girls

Our family is now asking for your prayers as our Daddy just needed emergency surgery to repair an intestinal blockage. The surgery was successful but he is still in the hospital at this time. The doctor tells us that he is on the road to recovery even though he has hit a bump or two along the way!
I have a trip scheduled next week to the PNW to spend some time with him, it has been hard being down here in the desert so far away from him.
I love you Daddy!
Your Desert Rose!


  1. The prayers are coming your way. My mother-in-law had that same surgery when she was 80, and she is now 85 and going strong. I am sure he will recover completely.
    Love the song you wrote -- very touching. I lost my Dad when I was 30....
    You and your sisters are blessed, and so is your Dad!

  2. I have to say, it wasn't your best performance! You are all out of practice. I wish you guys still played, I miss that. Still love the song though! Pappy is definitely on the mend but I'm sure he's ready to be home. Look forward to seeing you in a few days!

  3. Awww, that's beautiful!

    How's your Daddy doing now? I hope great!



We wish you Happy Trails
Jesse and his Desert Rose!
