I could go on and on about our relationship and closeness but it really comes down to the fact that I AM A PARENT. My daughter can look to me as a true guidance in life, I am the shoulder to lean on, the ear to listen and the hug to fall into when having a bad day. I am the one who holds her accountable and teaches her to learn from mistakes.
You could almost simply say; I am her guiding light in this challenging world she is growing up in. In all reality, I don't have to explain because the image above is the gift my daughter gave me this Christmas ... I think that speaks volumes for our closeness.
