My dad text me the other day and asked for a video of my daughter saying her ABC’s. I sent him the video with no hesitation. We even talked about how smart and advanced she was.
You want to know what growth looks like for me? 3 years ago, I wasn’t even talking to my father on a regular basis; and didn’t care if I did or didn’t. I had all but given up a relationship with him, until I got pregnant. I prayed on it and told myself that I wanted to give him the chance to know his granddaughter, because at the end of the day, me and his relationship has nothing to do with the relationship he has with her.
We may not see each other all the time, nor talk every day; but we are talking. And I couldn’t be happier. Our relationship has improved, through him building a relationship with my daughter and I would say that is one of the best things that has happened in the last 3 years.
See? Growth. 🙂
