Happy Father’s Day

I am so lucky to still have my Dad to love.

If you take a good look at the photo above…look at those eyes. My Dad’s eyes are the window to his soul. You always know how he is, by looking at his eyes. Those eyes are full of mischief!

His eyes have laugh lines. He loves to laugh and to make other’s laugh too. Those eyes also show years of life, love and hard work. I love my Dad’s eyes, and I am lucky enough to have inherited his “big blues”.

He is a stinker at times…playing pranks on his favorite people. He loves a good joke…and is just about he silliest man I have ever met. Our newest game is to “gnome” each other.

Being my Dad isn’t always easy. My life has been a very stressful event in general for several years now…and is just now starting to settle into a happy calm place.

I have noticed the change in your face Dad, posture and even the sparkle in your eyes came back this last week or so.

You seem to have let the proverbial breath out that you have been holding in just for me.

Thank you Dad for being there for me and the kids…being so supportive and for all the worry and concern you had for us all during the whole ordeal. I sure hope it is all over forever!

Happy Father’s Dad Grampie!!! I hope you have a great day with us out “gnoming” around!

“Dad, you've always been there for me and I don't think I've ever really said thank you.
No matter where I was or what you were doing,
You came to my aid and rescued me.
But I don't think I really said thank you.
You showed me a path, I couldn't find alone.
You showed me how to succeed, without giving up me.
And strangely, I don't think I ever said thank you.
You picked me up, whenever I fell.
You took heat for me and were badly hurt.
But again, I don't think I ever said thank you.
I've been in your life for 41 years.
There are so many things that you have done for me.
And yet again, I still don't think I said thank you.
You have shared your words of wisdom.
You have taught me well on life's lessons.
Yet, I have this lingering feeling that I have not said thank you.
I have watched you rise, I have watched you fall.
No matter what happens though,
I am still grateful, that you are in my life.
You've taught me well to be who I am and again,
I have not said thank you.
I want to change that, right now.
THANK YOU DAD, for everything you have ever said or done,
To make my life better, the way it is today.
THANK YOU DAD, for showing me the right path,
For giving me the love and support only a father could give to his daughter.
THANK YOU DAD, for being the man that you are today,
For being the man, you've always been.
THANK YOU DAD, for seeing the light and staying with us,
And for helping me be the woman I am now.
THANK YOU DAD, for all of your hard work and compassion.
For looking after your family like a real man should.
And THANK YOU DAD, for teaching my children as you taught me when I was younger,
And for still teaching me today.
Life is a lesson hard to learn, but worth the effort.
As long as I have you by my side, nothing is impossible.
THANK YOU DAD, for just being you. “

You are so sweet and caring Tootsie. I am sure your grampie and gramie are so proud of you, no matter what! I still remember the gnoming post last week and i wish somehow i should have a father like that. I can imagine your father's genes very well showing in you, you have the best! May your dad have the full health and may he be happy throughout his lifetime. I am sure he is!
