#ThursdayThoughts: Guest Post by @kmdaughters!

Good Morning Friends,

It is with great pleasure I bring back to our blog, KM Daughters who are sharing some very special thoughts with us....

As little girls we idolized our dad. He worked three jobs for much of his career to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. We didn’t have much in economic terms, but looking back on our childhood we agree that we had everything we needed and that we were rich in the love our parents lavished on us.

We couldn’t afford a car, so taking walks together as a family was major entertainment. Those frequent expeditions on foot taught us to appreciate togetherness and inspired our love of nature.
Another childhood joy inspired us – listening to the children’s stories Daddy wrote for us.

He carried a steno book everywhere with him and whenever he had a few minutes downtime, whether waiting for a bus or a break from one of his jobs, he wrote. His stories set our imaginations soaring.

Many years later we continue the tradition of walking and talking. On one of our sister walks, K.M. Daughters created the storyline for our first book, Reunion for the First Time (Coming in 2016 from The Wild Rose Press). Every book since has started the same way – walking together on Prairie Paths, along a sandy beach, uphill on mountain paths or suburban sidewalks like the days we strolled hand in hand with our father.

We can’t help feeling that Daddy is still with us on those walks inspiring his daughters to weave tales of their own.

You sisters share such a rich heritage of a father who wrote. What a tremendous influence. I'm pleased to hear the walks continue. Cheers

Oh my gosh, this made me cry! What precious memories and what a legacy your daddy left you. I assume he was a wonderful writer, because you girls sure have a gift. Love and hugs!

I think it's great that sisters can work together. So wonderful that you also share great memories of your father. Wishing you much success with your writing.
