Happy Father's Day, Dads!

When I was a little girl, I loved my Daddy. I remember sitting on his lap watching cartoons and getting in bed with him in the mornings. I remember "Dagwood" sandwiches for lunch and his awful attempts at cooking dinner when mom was away. Dad could always make a boo-boo better and he was the "man" to get out a bee sting or splinter, calling it "surgery."

Then, I became a bratty teenager. I was cruel to my Dad and I am ashamed of some of the things I said and did to him. I was a teenager and I thought I knew it all and everything he did was wrong or embarrassing to me. Those years weren't very good. We really didn't have a good relationship, actually we didn't have a relationship at all.

Once I grew up, Dad and I became closer and we developed a good, strong relationship all over again. Then, I got married and had a family of my own and realized how important and special my Dad is in my life. My children have formed a wonderful bond with my Dad and I love that. I love spending time with him, our annual Christmas shopping date, and all of our lunch outings.

I am so thankful and blessed to have you, Dad. Thanks for not giving up on me. I love you, Happy Father's Day!

And to my husband...
You are a wonderful Daddy! I am so thankful that our children have a big, fun playmate! You are an unbelievable provider and an excellent example for them to follow. They love you so much and so do I. Happy Father's Day!

  1. What an absolutely beauiful tribute to your Dad and your husband. I thought I was going to cry! This will make both of their days.
