Dad Sent His Daughter A Text To Ease His Guilty Conscience And Her Response Is Heartwarming

You’re always in my heart.

Parenting is tough. Any way you slice it – it’s hard. Whether you’re together, or a single parent or blending a family – the struggles never cease. I know first hand. My husband and I have been ‘blending’ our 4 children for several years and every day is a new day…Praise God! So, that’s what makes this Dad’s story/confession so real and sweet at the same time. Read on.


This is what one dad wrote:

“I’m a single dad with shared custody of my 10-year-old twins (boy/girl). My son is low-functioning autistic and weekday mornings can be tough to get us all out the door on time for work/school. I recently had a particularly tough morning with my son, and later sent a text to my daughter reminding her that she means a lot to me despite the fact that her brother requires extra attention. Check out her reply. Oh, the feels.”

Do you ever find yourself saying to God…”Hey, I’m sorry I can’t spend a lot of time with YOU right now because { fill in the blank }.” It’s easy to put our spouse, our children, our job, our neighbors, our worries, and our finances ALL first. But if we would put GOD 1st – all of those areas in our life would be more peaceful and would be in order. In our house, we call that ‘right-sized’…meaning I have my priorities in order.

Philippians 4:6 teaches us, “In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”

He’s waiting. Patiently. For you.
