Award winning gospel musician,Kirk Franklin penned a touching open letter to his daughter,Carrington who got married on Saturday, October 1st.He also share emotional photos .He actually wrote it shortly before her wedding read below
Sheâ€™s getting married todayâ€¦..and Iâ€™ve spent an hour and a half rewriting this. Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go, â€¦.of my little girl. I will walk her down the isle, then I will officiate the wedding. Why? Because Iâ€™m selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I donâ€™t make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak.
God, itâ€™s so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be. I want to go go- kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over againâ€¦.just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause sheâ€™s not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one. Iâ€™m sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! Iâ€™m proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud. He comes first now. Iâ€™ll have to get use to that, cause Iâ€™m selfish, for you.
Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let goâ€¦. Iâ€™m going to try really hard,â€¦but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretendâ€¦.that Iâ€™m never letting go. Forever daddyâ€™s girl.Â Signed,Â A girlâ€™s daddy.
