(STORYFUL/WTXF) David Rosenman, a physician at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, shared an intimate story of spending the afternoon with his 9-year-old daughter over the weekend and how one stranger left him a note that reinforced his notions of parenting.
Rosenman wrote on his Facebook that he took his daughter to a coffee shop on November 22, and she asked him if he could focus solely on her.
"Daddy, can you not read the paper or doodle or check email today? Can we just be together?" she told him. He writes that the duo then spent the day without distractions: his daughter showed him her yarn project, update him on her friendships, and "compared notes about whether or not couples at other tables were on 'dates.'"
While Rosenman went to the counter for a moment, a stranger left a note on their table, in which she wrote that she worked at a school where many daughters are fatherless. And the ones who do have fathers have never had them devote as much time listening to and watching their daughters as he did on Sunday.
