DEAR GIRLS, I am writing to you from the heart of your father, who sees you as twinkling stars in the night. You glimmer in the dark places, and you brighten my nights. I write to you to tell you my perspectives on who you are. I write to you to reaffirm that you are special and unique, each one beautiful in your own uniqueness. You are always special to me, never ordinary. This is my opportunity to share the relationship a father has with his growing daughters. I will tell you about days you will not remember. I will speak of smiles and gurgling baby sounds you could never recall. These are moments etched into my mind forever. I will never forget them. You are beacons of light shining in the stormy days of my tempestuous youth.
