Have a wonderful Father's Day

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way.

Psalm 37:23


I love that verse. It really does remind me of the important
men in my life.

Although my dad has passed away,
I have wonderful memories of picnics on Father's Day.
This verse sums him up perfectly.
He walked the walk.

A year ago today, I was at my son's graduation from boot camp.
Has it been a year?
So much has happened during the last 12 months.

This will be the 2nd year he misses Father's Day with his family.
I know he is not the first and won't be the last, but still....
I wish they could spend the day together.

Jeff, you are an incredible dad.
You take after grandpa in many ways and for that I am so grateful.
God Bless you as you continue your Army career.

Hubby, you are an amazing dad.
You were a friend to my sons before you even knew me.
The boys lucked out. The have a friend that will stand
by them for life as well as a man they call dad.
Or "big daddy dawg"- that would be J.W.

To all the fathers out there,
May your day be blessed with love and laughter.

Hi Barb! Found a path to your door via Lidy's blog, and I'm glad that I did! I've strolled the hallways of your archives and find your writing to be just delightful. I will be back. Happy Father's Day!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
