Kirk Franklin's Emotional Letter To Daughter Who Walked Down The Aisle Yesterday

WOW..I guess this happens to every Parent who shares a special bond with their child....
Letting go is not easy!





She's getting married today.....and I've spent an hour and a half rewriting this. Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go, ....of my little girl. I will walk her down the isle, then I will officiate the wedding. Why? Because I'm selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I don't make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak.
God, it's so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be. I want to go go- kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over again....just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause she's not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one. I'm sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! I'm proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud. He comes first now. I'll have to get use to that, cause I'm selfish, for you.
Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let go.... I'm going to try really hard,...but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretend....that I'm never letting go. Forever daddy's girl.
Signed,
A girl's daddy.

Congrats to you, son in law and your daughter. God bless their home.

But thats what you get when you have an only child. Imaging doing this to each of your three or four (or fourteen ala Brazilian) daughters. Won't it become boring? Would you even do it ?

Thank God your only daughter turned out fine. Some 'only child' turn out bad when the parent doesn't draw the line between upbringing and pampering. Maybe, the spanking that 'killid' you did the magic because.... 'spare the rod......'

This sound exactly like me! I think am even more selfish, sometimes maybe unfair to myself. I have been a single mum now for the past 7 year. I started living alone with my daughter when she was just 2 years and she will be 10 soon.

I am a psychiatric nurse here in Sweden and in a relatioship with a fellow Swede collegue of mine, whom I have known for the past 5 yrs. He wants us to get married and move in together, but I told him I do not want to move in with him, as do not want anything that will make me hv a divided attention for my daughter and he agreed. So the two of us live in our seperate mortgage appartments. I am afraid he will need my attention if we move in together and may be my daughter will feel someone have taken mum away from her.

All my life activities evolves around work and my daughter. It is either I am at work or busy driving her to dance lessons, football trainings and matches, piano lessons, making her hair, helping out with school works, taking her to freinds to play with on weekends etc. Freinds tell me I will be lonely when she finally leaves for collage(University) but I just dont care!! I want to make it up her because her father is not her life.

This write up really brought tears to my eyes and reminds me of the day that I am most afaid of in my entire life. I just hope I will let go when it time because if I dont she will go anyways and that will destroy our relationship.

Am not understanding your post @anon nurse. I think you should go for therapy since you work in a facility that helps with people emotional and psychological issues.

On spanking!??? The word 'spanking' no follow for naija parents. It's I will beat u with this broom, where is my belt, bring my black slippers, where is my cane etc. And it's a weekly occurence

Amen

Aww sweet mother. But whilst you cater for your daughter don't forget to LIVE the life of your dreams, cos she's living hers even as a little girl.

It's good to sacrifice for ones child, given the circumstances.. but don't get too clingy cos it may affect her later in life as well. She'd be happy if you're happy. And I suppose finding a man that makes u happy will also compliment ur daughter's happiness for her dear mother.

The only time you can feel bad is if u are in an abusive relationship that is taking u away from attending to her properly. Since she has no father figure, I think u should agree to marry ur man so that together u can give and show her love as a nuclear family. Please what u are doing now is ostracizing yourself from living life outside of your daughter. What about when u have more kids? So u see, that time will still come, when you'd have to give her a lil space to grow into a woman that u wish.

I know how u feel though, but it's best that u moderate that bond now before it's too late. Hugs
