{this memory} 73

This is the story behind last Monday's {this moment}.

Oh, daddies and their daughters!

There's not a lot of story here - just that this little girl's father used to have a luxurious bathrobe - royal blue and huge. It was a gift from my wife and was perfect for when one stepped out of the shower.

My daughter was about five in this image. She loved to put my robe on. It kept her warm, and it smelled like daddy.

She was such a sweetheart and still is. The robe has worn out and no longer lives at my house, but the memories remain.

I am filled with such wonderful memories and am a most fortunate man.
