Award-Winning Author Melody Carlson & Her Dad’s Unusual Bequest — 3 Comments

  1. What a beautiful post, Melody. My father was a huge part of my life as I was growing up, even working from home so he could be with us kids more often. He had a stroke 3 years ago and it has changed a lot about who he is as a person. Like you, I believe it has given me a lot to write about, from both sides of his life.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

  2. Yes, my dad had a big effect on me because he brought us to America as refugees from East Germany when I was 3 years old. Twice they had to give up everything they had to come to a land that felt would be a better place, especially for me to grow up in. Now that East Germany is a free land again, I have gone back several times and gone to my ancestral homes. I am so grateful for my dad. I understand those whose father’s didn’t live up to their dreams of a father, as this was the case of my mom’s father as well. But we are here as a result and for that we should still give thanks.

  3. Well, my father and I are estranged. Because of this, I believe it is has made me a stronger person.
