The Love Of A Parent -by Uchendu Temple


Yesterday, I went to the park with my dad. We have been close my entire life, I literally fall into that category of, “Daddy’s little girl”.




At least once a week, my husband, kids and I would meet him the park. We would let the kids play and catch up on everything. My husband and I worked at the same company and we both lost our job due to the former banking crisis.

Things had been hard for a while. I mean paying for the house, the cars, the kids and everything else had wiped out our savings and we even had to get some government assistance.

That day we are sitting in the park and my dad pulls an envelope out of his jacket and hands it to me. I looked at it curiously. My parents were not very wealthy just blue collar workers their entire life.

I opened the envelope and there is a letter, and a bank statement. My dad looks up and says, “Honey I know that you have been having a hard time, and it’s not your fault. Your mother and I discussed it and we decided it was time to give your inheritance to you early. We love you all and we don’t want to see the two of you and the grandkids suffer if it can be avoided”.

I had no clue that my father and mother had been saving up for me since the day I was born. He handed me a check, bank statement and a hand written letter. The check was for over $200,000.00, the statement was transferring it to my name and the letter said, “I’ll always take care of my little girl”.
