I love stories about fathers and daughters.

I had a hard time following this in places--figuring out what was real and what was a dream, for example. Maybe needs to be a bit tighter.

Nice ending.
This is a very cool memory - being with your dad in the Statue of Liberty and then later with your own girls. Nice work.
I thought something significant was going to happen when shy Missy made a new friend, then had to shake myself back. A great memory, though, and a very nice ending.
Forgot to ask-why was lizzy having nightmares?
Father/daughter stories have become quite special as I have a new little girl at home. Thanks for sharing the memory. Well done.
As someone who doesn't care for heights, I enjoyed the trip up the statue through your eyes. :)
This was a great father/daughter story; I loved the was just right.
A cozy, sweet story with an ending we all should take to heart when sleep alludes us - counting our blessings. On a practical/technical note, to tighten the story and allow for more to be said, consider cutting out some of the tag lines after someone speaks. Such as Lizzy said. Often the reader is in the scene with the characters and instinctively knows who is talking at the time. That aside, I truly enjoyed your article.
This was a cute story that reminds one to be thankful for one what has! The only thing I would add to the above comments would be that I think more dialogue could be used to explain what was happening. I enjoyed the scenic view you wrote. Thanks!
Tugged at my heart strings with this one. LOVED your ending, and the title is perfect.
