Dad, the sky was
never as beautiful
as when I saw it from
Kids, it is Father's Day, a day when we express our appreciation to dear old Dad, who quietly gets up every morning and works a long day to earn a living, but still has time for baths and stories when he gets home. Dad shows us the world, makes us laugh, helps us dream, coaches our growing and points the way to a limitless horizon. Because he believes in us, it is easier for us to believe in ourselves. Because he is kind, his daughters learn how to choose a kind partner. Dad's boys are the apples of his eye. His daughters are Daddy's little girls. When Dads turn into Grandpas, they have a special twinkle in their eyes for their grandkids, and they get choked up easily around them, because they know how vulnerable children are, and how hard life can be.
Today let's remember our Dads and Grandpas, in whichever way feels right to you.
You know the drill: post the link to your blog in Mr Linky, and make the rounds to read some of the other offerings. It will be wonderful to read about all of the Dads!
Happy Father's Day, Big Guy!
