I got this SMS from my daughter.

"Dad U really live up to the word WARRIOR. A soldier fights for others values and beliefs, a warrior fights for their own. A soldier gains skills, a warriors gains wisdom. A soldier will go through tough times, a warrior has gone through tough times."

Are you a warrior or a soldier?

JoziSA,

It sounds like your daughter thinks very highly of her father.

Thanks everybody, I think my relationship with my daughters grew only once I told them EVERYTHING that happened to me. I believe I told them at the right age, they then had a greater insight into who I am, where I came from and where I'm going. Telling my loved ones destroyed the years of my silence that gave the perpetrators the upper hand, it destroyed the hold they had over my subconscious.
