    Hey All!

    Well all of these posts left me so inspired and excited, so my dad and I started talking about our ideas. He ended up suggesting the song "The face" by... I can't remember. lol

    Anyway, it isn't very "daddy's Girl" which is perfect, because--although we are very close-- we aren't "daddy's little girl" close. Our relationship revolves very much around ideas, conversations, and life aspirations. So this song was perfect-- all about telling me he'll be there, whether I choose to take his advice or not.

    I'm so excited, and he seemed really pleased that I liked his choice. One more check on the list!

            My brother and SIL did this with a family dance for both sides, they used Angels Among Us, wow what a tear jerker, but it was so worth it as my mom and her dad couldn't be there with us.

              We are considering using the Tim McGraw song "My Little Girl" or "Butterfly Kisses" by Bob Carlisle.

                  I love all the Stevie Wonder songs. I also like Lionel Richie songs, but I still have to research.

                      I know it's a bit untraditional but I was thinking about using "Footprints in the Sand" by Leona Lewis. I have a good relationship with my dad but it's not like the Butterfly Kisses or My Little Girl kind of relationship. Ours is more of a respectful relationship and very much a friendship. Does anyone have any thoughts on this song? I am worried it might be more of a love song than anything- though it does talk about being there and being your friend etc. Here are the lyrics though I am sure everyone has heard the song:

                      You walked with me,
                      Footprints in the sand,
                      And help me understand,
                      Where I'm going,

                      You walked with me,
                      When I was all alone,
                      With so much unknown,
                      Along the way,
                      Then I heard you say,

                      I promise you,
                      I'm always there,
                      When your heart is filled
                      With sorrow and despair,
                      I'll carry you
                      When you need a friend,
                      You'll find my footprints in the sand.

                      I see my life flash across the sky,
                      So many times have I been so afraid.
                      And just when I, I thought I lost my way,
                      You give me strength to carry on,
                      That's when I heard you say,

                      I promise you
                      I'm always there
                      When your heart is filled
                      With sorrow and despair
                      And, I'll carry you
                      When you need a friend
                      You'll find my footprints in the sand.

                      When I'm with you,
                      Well I know you've been there,
                      And I can feel you when you say,

                      I promise you (you)
                      I'm always there
                      When your heart is filled (when your heart)
                      With sadness and despair (and despair)
                      I'll carry you when you need a friend (need a friend)
                      You'll find my footprints in the sand. (I promise you)

                      Ohh. (I'm always there)

                      When your heart is full of
                      Sadness and despair, (and despair)
                      I'll carry you when you need a friend. (I'll carry you)
                      You'll find my footprints in the sand.
