My Best Friend from forever was helping me with Clint at the ICU Saturday and she shared this:
I witnessed something so beautiful today....
A father sharing sound life advice with his sweet daughter.
I can't believe I was front row to a conversation most father's only think of sharing with their precious girls.
Clint says "Neiska, I'm going to ask you to do something for me. Whenever you are feeling down, or lonely, or sad or bad about yourself, please, go find a mirror, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself that YOU love yourself, that your DAD loves you and that your Heavenly Father loves you.
Those three things will always be sound and true. Love yourself Neiska. And know I love you, and your Father in heaven loves you. That's all, it's very simple."
He continued to tell her much more. But, that's what silenced any voice in my head. As if I needed to listen too.
Clint Bauer, I will forever be grateful for the gift of you in my life. I will always try my hardest to be a good friend to your beautiful bride and a mentor and life guide for all three of your children. This I pledge to you, in this life and the next. God speed my brother.
