6. Always Your Child Chart with Color Variations

Design © Connie G. Barwick
My dad died a few weeks after I graduated from college. One day, I was missing him really badly and could not explain why. A few days later I watched a Peter Gabriel concert. A few lines from the song Father, Son jumped out at me.

It's been so many years
And now these tears
Guess I'm still your child

These lines described my feelings perfectly. My Dad has been gone for many years, but I am still his daughter and I will always be his child.
