This is my special dad!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Dad, you were a special man!
You were always there to lend a hand.
You treated us with kindness.
You were always fair.
You showed us how much you cared.
You wore a happy smile upon your handsome face.
And taught us how to appreciate God’s grace.
You made our lives so full and rich.
Teaching us to be good was your main pitch.
You would tease and joke.
While always a cigarette at your lips you would smoke.
You were talented with your hands.
Fixing and creating things on command.
You thought of others before yourself.
Your own troubles you put away on a shelf.
You left this world for a better place.
Leaving here on Earth a large empty space.
You gave us your love in every way.
I love you more than I can say!
I miss you more and more each day!
Happy Father’s Day with Love, Dad!
Your loving daughter,
Jan (my nickname by Dad)
I wish all the fathers out there a wonderful Father’s Day!
Thank you for stopping by!
With love and blessings!

A wonderful tribute to your father for Father’s Day! ❤
Thank you, Tess! Hugs!
You are welcome. XX
Wonderfully said. You must have loved your father. Yes, a great tribute.
Thank you, Gigi! Yes, I certainly did. He was a wonderful dad. Hugs!
My Dad dies way too early for really appreciating him. Since we out of Germany, I learnt so much and writing my books, I would have my Dad much more loved and appreciated, as I have done while still living in Germany. I regret that very much. but I know, he is in heaven and one day, in the far future, I will see him again and can tell him all the things I which to tell him now. with writing my books, I have learnt so much. It’s just amazing. and now I really miss him. But too late now.
It is sad we lose our parents. But you will see him one day. He must have known how much you loved him. Blessings to you, my friend. Hugs!
Thank you Janice. Yes, and he will watch over me, over us and his grand daughter now. He never had seen our children. But still, I think he has.
Janice, what a special tribute to your dad. Thank you for sharing and hopefully inspiring others to think great poetic thoughts of our dads on this special day. Happy Father’s Day!
Thank you, Valerie, for your kind words and for stopping by. Nice to see you!
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
A lovely tribute to her father from Janice Spina.
Thank you so much, Sally, for the reblog. My father was a wonderful, loving dad. I was extremely fortunate to have him for nearly 79 years.
I am so sad when I read about people whose fathers die when they are children – they miss out on so much during the tough years. Mine was 80 so we both had the full benefit. hugs
Yes, Sally, it is sad to see when fathers die too young. I was fortunate to have my dad for yearly 79 years. I miss him so much but he is in my heart and close by in my memories always. Hugs!
Thank you, Beth, for stopping by to read my blog. Nice to see you. Appreciate your kind words.
That is so moving. A lovely Father’s Day tribute 🙂
Thank you so much, Edwina! I was fortunate to have a wonderful father. Thank you for stopping by.
