Daddies and Daughters

I'm still reeling from the awesomeness of Heroes last night. Seriously, how freaking awesome was that? One of the ways that it was truly incredible was the depiction of the relationship between HRG (Mr. Bennett) and his daughter Claire. I won't spoil it for people but it was honestly one of the most touching depictions of a father daughter relationship that I've seen on television, which would also include the episode of Doctor Who I wrote about a while back.

It really made me glad that I have the relationship with Kinsey that I have right now. I know for certain that it's going to change. I know that we're going to have really rough spots, especially with two people who are as stubborn as we are. But I also am going to hold in my memory days like yesterday when I came home from work and she and Sheryl were making huge bubbles in the front yard, and then when the three of us played Go Fish as Connor took his nap, or as she and I wrestled with her trying to get a ball from me. It's one of those times that you just want to pack into a suitcase and keep it there.

Those are the kind of days I'm thankful to God for.

Oh, wait. You didn't spoil it.

I guess I'll keep reading.

Heroes was AWESOME last night! And I know what you mean about daddies and daughters. Stephen and the kids had a very similar day yesterday. What a blessing it is to be parents! We keep wondering how we, of all people, could be so incredibly blessed.

You'll hold on to those memories until the Haitian gets you.

Couldn't resist.

So sweet....the father/daughter bond is so special! As for Heroes...AMAZING!!! It took me awhile to calm down after watching it. I love that I can never anticipate what is going to happen or who is going to show up in the story line (again.) Love it!!

I had tears in my eyes at the end. And that's a lot rarer than it useta be. It was very touching, and I found myself proud of Mr. Bennett and so very sad for Claire ... and what's going to happen next, for goodness sakes?

Malia said...

Yeah, Bennett definitely redeemed himself. There for awhile I was really not liking him.

I commented somewhere else about how I liked the way this episode concentrated on just a few characters. We got a whole bunch of answers and information that could not have been worked into an episode where they feel the need to profile every character.

we have three girls...there is nothing better than having one of them crawl up in my lap at the end of the day, melt into me, and just drift off. Have fun
