They say, “A father is his daughter’s first hero.” Daughters may have the closest bond with their mothers, because they belong to the same gender and understand each other better but a father-daughter bond is just something else which surpasses every affection in this world. Just think about it, what is the basic relation the opposite genders can have? Love for each-other right! But what if those two souls are bounded with the magic of creation and love. It’s the most beautiful thing ever.
We are so sorry for Twitter user Bailey Seller, who lost her father to Cancer when she was 16 years old. Before her loving father passed away he put together a lovely gesture for her daughter, Bailey shared it on the Twitter world and everyone is overwhelmed with the love a father can have for a daughter even when the time is not with them.
Bailey lost his dad a month before her 17 birthday due to cancer.
But her her father left a beautiful surprise for her daughter by prepaying flowers that would be delivered to her on her birthday every year for the next five years.
This is the first bouquet she received from her dad when she turned 17.
“I just dropped,” she said. “I was completely shocked.” At first, she thought it must’ve been some secret admirer but when she read the card, it was from her beloved late father.
This one is, from when she turned 18.
And it went on the next coming years.
She turned 21 on Sunday, 26 November 2017, this time the flowers came with a note.
The flowers arrived earlier too with a letter in it.“I couldn’t help but be so happy,” she said of the bouquet’s early arrival. “I think everything happens for a reason, and I think that happened for a reason.”
And here’s the letter that came with it.
The card begins with, “This is my last love letter to you until we meet again. I do not want you to shed another tear for me my Baby girl for I am in a better place.” And the letter ends with a promise from her dad: “I will still be with you through every milestone, just look around and there I will be”.
Bailey is so proud of the flowers she gets every year and posted them on Twitter, and so she did with the ones she received recently.
My dad passed away when I was 16 from cancer and before he died he prepaid flowers so i could receive them every year on my birthday. Well this is my 21st birthday flowers and the last. Miss you so much daddy. 💜

Dear Bailey. IDK you IRL but wanted to wish you Happy Birthday. You already know this but your Daddy was an amazing man. A father’s love for his daughter is the gift of a lifetime. How lovely he honors you in such a way. Best to you in all you endeavor.

Yes, only a true man can make you feel how special you are.
this is the DEFINITION of a real man and father, thinking less of themselves and more of showing love even when time doesn’t allow it. I can only hope to have a man in my life like this ♥️ warms my heart to see this https://t.co/5a4CpAk8vi

.@SellersBailey Bailey, happy birthday! Your father must have been incredible. I’m in my 30s but my father passed away from pancreatic cancer 2 days after my 19th bday. I still feel I’m learning from him. It’s an incredible gift that never goes away. Hope you have a great bday!

For some, Bailey’s late father became an inspiration.
Hope I can be this good of a father one day 🙏🏼

Bailey also got a tattoo in honor of his dad that carved his own words with his handwriting.
A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us to our destination. He is a guiding light to help lead the way for us.
A relationship between a daughter and her parents is one of boundless love and sacrifice. After all, you are all part of a family, a kingdom where you are the princess, your mother is the queen, and your father is the king of the household.
My dad is my hero too, as he is the greatest humble man I’ve ever seen, it’s hard for me to settle down with any man because I compare every man to my father.
