daughter / daddy


This picture was delivered to my e-mail last week as these two headed to the Daddy Daughter Valentine Dance (held at someone’s spacious home). I love that our daddies and daughters still like to dress up for each other. That relationship is so important, so necessary for healthy maturity.

Of course the picture sent me to my archives for matches. I can’t help myself.


Not the best quality, but this picture still captures the adoration young Quinn had for her daddy and he for her.

I can actually remember when someone snapped this picture of me with my daddy. I was not the apple of his eye, though dearly loved. He was a distracted dad, had a high mission in life, left the parenting mostly to my mother. Times have changed this, at least in our culture, and that’s a very good thing.

    Oh my…Cassidy to turning into a beautiful young woman! Outstanding picture! My brother, Mike, drove down to Roseburg last weekend to attend a father/daughter dance with his son and three grandaughters. So there were my 3 nieces, their daddy and thier grandpa all dressed up…daddy and grandpa in their suits and ties and the little girls in pretty party dresses! I was so touched by the event and the pictures. But how times have changed! I was not allowed to go to dances….or movies….or…..!!! Yes Sherry, I couldn’t agree more…times HAVE changed and that is a very good thing!

    Thanks for sharing this Sherry.

    I know so many adult women who struggle because of absent dads, physically or emotionally. Too few fathers understand their importance, esp. for their daughters. Good on ya, Dusty!

  4. You have captured such special moments. You had a father who was well what can we say, loving and had such a big heart for the lost. You knew if he was running late that he had taken the time to share the gospel with someone somewhere. We all knew and loved all phases of your father. What great memories we all have. You have taken after your mother, who could sing, play piano and write like no one else. She had such wisdom and patience.

    Hope you are healing well. Thanks for sharing your precious photos. Can’t believe that Cassidy is getting so big. Dusty looks like such an awesome father.
