My two daughters' (both over 50) comments on Fathers Day, made my day. My oldest daughter sent me a copy of the Robert Frost poem about a road less travelled. amd said that she has always admired me for being a person who consciously chose "the road less travelled."
My youngest daughter said that she has always admired me for my intelligence, my independent thinking, my gentleness, and my "hunanness" (in the sense of sharing who I really am and where I have come from without glossing over the unpleasant parts -- but also said that I have always been an impatient person. I could not have asked for a better Father's Day gift.

You're a good dad and you raised some great kids! Well done!

Many thanks!


It sounds like you were a good father.


If you're not familiar with it, here's an article about the history of that poem and what Robert Frost was actually saying (hint: it's not at all what most people think): [] Your daughter might find this interesting!

Your daughters sound like wonderful young women. You are a lucky man, but in your case it also sounds like you made your own luck ?

Ain't it the truth, AIN'T IT THE TRUTH.
