I am my father's daughter though, for sure. I sort of always knew that, and from time to time I was either proud of it or despised it, but mostly simple accepting it as a fact. It was just amazing to hear people talk about him - and hear people talk about me, whether behind my back (rumors travel) or in my face. The choice of words sealed so much in terms of how to describe certain traits, I was stunned - in a good way.
I will share a new family photo that will most closely describe how we, the "girls left behind" feel.
From there - we will live on.
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go”
