Girl Shares The Sweetest Birthday Gift From Her Late Father On Twitter And People Are Tearing Up

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.

People started responding to her with heartwarming comments and kind condolences about her late father’s sweet gesture and also wished her a Happy Birthday.

Her tweet got over 1 million likes, leaving retweets from people about their personal loss and sharing their stories too.

It literally brought tears to my eyes as well.

Yes, only a true man can make you feel how special you are.

For some, Bailey’s late father became an inspiration.

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.
