Daddy's Little Girl is here!

I am searching for heartfelt and inspirational stories about mother-daughter relationships, stories that share wisdom and teach important moral and life lessons, stories from which daughters and moms might derive hope and guidance after reading them.

What did you learn from this unique parent-child relationship, how it has changed over the years, how you two dealt with conflict, etc? The stories can be about good or bad times, as long as the result is something others can learn from. There are no format or length requirements.

For more information about submitting your story, please visit my website, www.gregoryelang.com, and click the red corner on the home page, just beneath the “Projects” tab.

I’m also conducting recorded telephone interviews for those who prefer to tell rather than write their story. Just send me an email with your phone number and dates/times you are available. Interviews typically last 30-45 minutes.

If you’d like to submit a daughter-mom photo to display on this blog, please email it to greg.lang@mindspring.com.

If this is your first visit to my blog, please read the Frequently Asked Questions posted on March 20, 2008.

The deadline for submitting your story or participating in an interview is August 1, 2008.

Now on to today’s post~

Today’s photo was loaned to me by the Harris family, who are the center of a sweet little story about little girls reminding mom you never get to old for a good day of dress-up and tea parties.

I got my hands on an advance copy of Daddy’s Little Girl! It is such a lovely book and I am very proud of it. It was Meagan who found the envelop at the door late Friday night; we four sat on the couch and looked through it together. It made me happy to see the girls laugh as they recalled some of the stories I had told in the book. Meagan had to be at the airport early Saturday morning for her mission trip to Mexico and took a copy with her, promising to read it on the plane or during her relaxation time at the orphanage. I can’t wait to see her when she returns Friday night and hear what she thinks. Stay tuned.

Well as you can see Jill and I are back from our brief excursion to the South Carolina coast. For the third time in a row my beach photo plans were rained out – it seems whenever I get within five miles of the Atlantic a storm front moves in. It was so bad a beach wedding had to be moved inside on Sunday. When it wasn’t raining it was cold so I’m doubtful I can use the shots I managed to take; the daughters and mom were so bundled up their expressions were lost behind their hoods. Such is the willfulness of nature I guess.

I have lots of email to catch up on and new stories to read. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll be back to normal daily updates tomorrow.

Well, I guess that’s enough for today. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Now go out and hug somebody!

I was on my friends blog and noticed that you commented on her and her daughters. I think it is amazing what you are doing. I never had a great relationship with my mom and always wish I had. I dont think we will ever be close but I value having a mother in my life.. Good luck on the new work!
