    Woodworkers Prayer

    Folks - I think this is pretty neutral when it comes to religion, but if others feel different and want it removed, I won't be offended...

    My daughter wrote this for me a few years ago, and I shared it at that time with others who appreciated it... It hangs in my workshop with pride and, I am very proud of her. She is now halfway though her junior year in college (majoring in Theater and Creative Writing) and my favorite customer!
    As we come to the Holiday season, I thought I would share it again...

    Feel free to copy if you wish, but if you pass it on, please be sure to credit her as she is a writer


    Sorry Roger, in retrospect this portion of your post has to be removed, it is in direct violation of the CoC.

    If anyone would like to see the very nice prayer that Roger's daughter wrote for him, I'm sure Roger would share it with you via a PM, or you could PM me, as I have a saved copy, as I found it touching.

    Roger, that is beautifully written. Tell her Thanks for me.

    I also Thank you for sharing it with us, I'll be making a copy of it to hang in either my shop or my office...and of course her name will be on it.

    Sounds like that you are one lucky guy to have a daughter like that. She must think a lot of you.

    Steve - Katie will be glad to hear that!
    John - Yes, I really think she "gets" her old man and those of us that call the shop our second home!
    Allen - Yes, I consider myself exceptionally lucky - we have a wonderful relationship and I think the world of her!
    Thanks for you kind comments all, I'll be sure Katie sees them!

    That is really beautiful. It's amazing how words can convey to total strangers what a wonderful relationship you have with your daughter.
