Dear Sally,
A beautifully written and phrased story, full of emotion that can touch all of us and I must say particularly people of my age. You have touched my heartstrings.
Regards
Reg

A wonderful story! If only everyone who had hurt and left their families could be as repented as Carl and really made the effort to reconnect with their families. Your story is the ideal ending.

I enjoyed reading this piece. I hoped Tamara would visit before it was too late. It will be interesting to see where you take this story now.
Happy New Year!

You've written a beautiful story about enduring love and forgiveness in such a way that the emotion touches the reader's heart very deeply. I'm glad there is still a little bit of time left for them to be together. xoxo

Ah, Sal, another beautiful post about truly heartfelt love -- this time from a father who walked out on his wife and young daughter long ago, and finally sees the need to make amends before his life fades away.

I understand why you chose to write this one (of four) first. Knowing the real history behind it misted my eyes from that point on. The power of forgiveness is evident in the sad but lovely ending.

This world certainly needs more sincere and openly expressed love. You clearly are doing your part to remind us all, and your own life with Jackson is proof of what true, unconditional love can do.

Superb, aptly illustrated, and nicely accompanied by the relevant video.

    Dear Mike, Thank you for the lovely review and kindest comments. It means so much. My goal to spread love around FanStory must be working. I enjoy sharing love letter themed stories as I have been blessed in that way. I have books and boxes of them, mostly from Jackson, my sons, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. Sophia just loaded me up this Christmas--my inspiration for this new four-part series. {Smiles.}
    Sending you my best today as always, and blessings for the new year.
    Sal :))

    You are most welcome, Sal. You deservedly have risen to the top among writers of love stories on this site, and regularly prompt tears from your increasingly loyal readers. It is not easy to do that; but you seem to be a natural at it, as you do so consistently.

    Your love stories are entirely believable because they are based in reality, hence they cannot be dismissed as mere mush. Consequently, they have the power to change real lives by influencing viewpoints.

    In this world of many sorrows, publication of your stories may draw a loyal readership beyond your expectations. May you be blessed with such a joy along with those you already have, far into the future. -- Mike

It's hard to keep a dry eye when reading your work! You have the sweetest way of expressing emotion and pulling a reader into your story with just the first line! I experienced such a confession from my own father, but on a more silent level. The last time I saw him before he committed suicide, he took me out to bar (I was visiting my grandmother and he lived there at this time), and we enjoyed a great evening. In the morning when I woke, he was sitting at the end of the bed in a rocker with tears on his face. I knew he'd been sitting there watching me sleep and regretting the last 29 years of barely being in my life. I hugged him and left to go back home to my own family, and two weeks later he was gone. No words needed to pass between us for me to know he loved me:). Thank you for sharing this beautiful story and of course, I can't wait to read what comes next! xoxo

    Aw, Christmas is such a wonderful holiday in some ways, and painful in other ways. It stirs up what is missing in our lives, I think. I'm so honored to hear your own personal story, and so happy you knew your dad loved you. That's what is most important.

    I am deeply honored by your review and compliments, dear one. It always means the world to me. :) :)
    Sending you my best today as always, and blessings for the new year.

i suppose at times we all receive special letters much like you write about. I never watched the video, but know you are a sincere writer. Thanks for sharing your talent.

    Hello Ben, and Happy New Year! I'm glad our enjoyed this new love letter style form of writing. I have decades to draw from and I enjoy rereading my own letters so much, it pours out in these forms of writing. I hope you'll watch the video. I cry every time I do.
    Thank you for the lovely review and kind compliments once again. It means so much to me.
    Sending you my best today as always,

This is so beautiful Sally, and so beautifully written, it touched me deeply, Elaine and I are spending time with our beautiful elder daughter and our grands and son in law, they have been so loving and good to us, my heart is overwhelmed. When Rebecca was first married, I wanted to help them, but Nick was so independent, for a short time, we fell out, it ripped me apart, I had broken a relationship with a close friend, which didn't help, we were quickly reconciled, God dealt with my anger and rejection, my daughter is as beautiful as my wife, so this reminded me of those days, my writing has been inspired by God's unsearchable love, as you've probably guessed Sally, congratulations, this moved me deeply. Well done, blessings, Roy

    Thank you, dear Roy. It's amazing, I thought of you and your two daughters when I wrote this, not knowing anything of the personal details. Like you, God gives me my writing and it flows from my pen on most days. I am deeply honored by your kind review and generous rating. I'm pleased it spoke to your heart.
    Sending you my best today as always, and blessings to you and yours for the new year.

Truly a heart rendering story. You have put so much love, forgiveness and the emotion that goes along with them in a such a compact chapter. Can't even imagine what the next one holds, but I am certain it will be just as heart warming. Great job!
