Gifts from my dad

This has been a week of celebrations.  A birthday (me) and Father's Day (him).
This post is dedicated to my dad.  He has been watching over us for the last 6 years.
He lived his life with a quiet dignity.  He was nurturing and loving.
He was a true southern gentleman. He left us with a rich legacy.
 What is truly important in life.
 I love this photo of him. How young he was.

 He inspired me to go for my dreams, however crazy they may be.
He was the ultimate role model.

The first time I heard this song, It just blew me away.
It sums up how he lived his life and what he passed on to his family.
I hope you watch the video. I promise, it is worth the time.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.
Hubby, Jeff, this one is for you.

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS from my heart!

A sweet post, Barb. Isn't it a blessing to have (or have had) a great father?
