Happy Father’s Day to all fathers out there!

What is a father?

He is someone whose lap you can crawl onto and take a nap.

He is someone who reads you a story at bedtime.

He is someone who listens to you when you need a friend.

He is someone who picks you up and gives you a much needed hug.

He is someone who will play catch with you after you receive a new glove.

He is someone who will laugh at your poor jokes and tell some funny ones of his own.

He is someone who gives you a pat on your back for a job well done.

He is someone who says ‘I love you’.

He is someone who will give you money for your first date.

He is someone who will let you take his car for a drive right after you get your license.

He is someone you can call when you have get into trouble.

He is someone who will listen to you and never lose patience.

He is someone who will never judge you unfairly.

He is someone who has taught you the difference between right and wrong.

And he is someone who one day you will treasure beyond reason when he is gone.

Love and appreciate your father while he is here.

My father died over twelve years ago and I still miss him terribly.  I will always have the wonderful memories of him in my heart of what a kind, sensitive, funny, caring and loving person he was.   May he rest with our Heavenly Father.

Please do something special with your father on Father’s Day and don’t forget to tell him how much you love and appreciate him.  It will make him smile!  It would be better than any gifts you could give him.

Thought for the day:  When you give unselfishly to others you receive more than you could ever imagine in return.

Blessings to all!

  1. This is so special, Janice. You did a great job and I know your dad is proud of you as he watches over you! Being a father is very special indeed. May every father realize that and cherish their responsibility.

    Thank you Deanie. My father was very special and I loved him very much. I agree fathers do have an awesome responsibility to care for their families and in turn are sometimes under appreciated.

  3. I’m sure that your dad is so proud of you and he’s always smiling when he watches over you.

  4. jjspina says:

    Thank you. I hope he is. He had a great smile and laugh!

  5. I don’t there’s any doubt that he is! Hope you have a lovely weekend.
