Wonderfully woven story. I love the image of her father being yarn.
Enjoyed the light but heart felt style of this. You brought this vignette to life.

"I perked an eyebrow" is my favorite line among many good ones in this endearing story. Lovely and descriptive, but very much like everyday dialogue between a daughter and her dad.
I could feel the honest tug of war of emotions and the beautiful way it flowed with the sweet, personal memories. Reading this, I can only think how blessed both father and daughter are to have shared so many good things together, Beautiful entry, I liked this writing style immensely,

You managed to make this poetically brilliant and authentically down to earth at the same time. HOW do you do THAT? Wowzer!

I love the musical "tone" of this, and that you used a "willow tree". I felt like I was there watching it all. Great writing!

Very creative...I liked the memories.
This is lovely. I could picture the silver-haired father. Loved the ending, too.
I really enjoyed this. I loved the ball of yarn description. It helped me picture what kind of guy the father was.

Your writing skills shine in this piece. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Felt like I was sitting on the porch too! I especially liked the line, "My father was made of yarn. Millions of strands twined together, adding layers to the personality I saw as his character." That creates such an amazing image in my mind.
