My grandmother gave my mother a copy of your book when she went off to college and my mom still has the book and she is 47. Just this year I went off to college and both my sister and I received our own copies of your book. Its such a lovely book and it is such a gift to my family. Thanks so much!
I was cleaning out closets and found this book for my sons. Now, we have grandchildren and need more. Thank heavens you’re still in business. I’ll go back on line and order the books I need. Thanks for still being here.
I purchased your book for son’s 16 years ago with the intention of reading it to him at a special time. I read it out loud to him at his Graduation party two years ago and gave it to him. It brought everyone to tears and my son cherishes the book and the reading of it. My Daughter graduates this year and I will be doing the same. Thank you for giving me words to share for these special moments.
I am so excited! I frist bought this book about 18 years ago when my kids were little. I gave it to my oldest 4 years ago when he graduated from high school, and it brought a tear to his eye. My second son is about to graduate, and I was feeling really bad that I did not have a copy to give him. I thought I would try typing in the author’s name in a search engine – and I found this site. I now will be able to give my second son a copy, and also my daughter, when she graduates in another 4 years. Thanks so much!!
I wanted to say thank you for writing such beautiful thoughts and making them available for all to read and share – I sent this to my son shortly after he left home – it says it all.
Ms. Knapp, I have had a copy of your book since I was eighteen and I am now 36, and it has been one of my favorite books of all time! I use it every now and again to reshape and refresh my thoughts, and to show me where I need to go again as a woman, wife and now parent. Thank you so much for your wonderful writing. What a powerful blessing to so many! You do beautiful artwork as well, and someday it would be so lovely to meet you in person. Thank you again. It’s a blessing to order this for my niece who is now graduating from high school.
I can’t believe I found your website – I purchased this book in 1991 after my daughter was born wanting to give it to her as she grew into a young lady. Of course, I’ve misplaced it. I could cry knowing I’m able to find and purchase this rare gift again. Thank you.
I absolutely love this book! I bought one in Venice, Florida, went back to the store and all were gone!!!! I have 5 daughters and want to share this wonderful book with all of them. This book will really help let them know the love I have for all of them. Thank you for “Did I Tell You.”
I have to tell you, I purchased one of your books at a card shop in the area over 10 years ago for my daughter (who at the time was only about 3 years old) to give to her when she graduates. I now have two daughters and found myself wondering what I was going to do, because this is something I wanted both of them to have. I was pleasantly surprised when I typed your name on the web, for the heck of it and not really expecting anything, to find that I could obtain another copy. Oh what joy you brought me. My dilemma that I carried for the past ten years was solved with a few keystrokes and the almighty web.
This book represents such exquisite wisdom and reflects values that I think all caring parents hope they pass on to their children. I try to be an example for my daughters and live by those standards and hope they pick them up. Thank you so much for putting into words something I feel, but don’t think I would eloquently put on paper as you have. You are an angel.
My mother in law has passed away and I found your book in her night table with notes she had written for her two sons and certain things underlined that she wanted to pass along to her 7 grandchildren, my 4 children and my niece and two nephews. I was so touched and moved by this, that I thought it would be nice for each of the 7 grandchildren, and her 2 sons to have copies.
I understood this was something she wanted them to have, and probably found it difficult to do since her health failed quickly and her death followed an intense but short illness.
I cried my eyes out while reading this, and it is a memory that I am sure she wanted to share with those closest to her.
