Hi Sweet Friends! Happy Father's Day to all it may apply! I have to take advantage of this day...
To My Dad on Father's Day,
It is hard to find the words to express what a special place you have in my heart, but I think you know.
Since I was a little girl spending time with you has been one of my favorite things to do, and still is.
I was your shadow. I used to love following you around the yard and raking leaves into piles for you to burn them. You would let me jump in the piles, time and time again, just before lighting your match.
Our wooden boat was kept in the carport and I would hop up in it, unlatch the wooden fold down seat, and watch as you would sand her down and add polyurethane to keep her protected. We had some fun times water skiing in that boat!
Remember the day I accidentally sprayed spray paint in my eyes? It was only seconds before you had scooped me up and were flushing my eyes with water. And when older, those times I was such a scaredy cat and would call you because I was afraid someone was in the house? Within minutes you were at my door and with a shotgun over your shoulder you walked throughout the house checking to make sure all was well. I called you more times than I would like to admit and you never once made me feel like I was silly or was bothering you…thank you for that!
(It was later in life when I realized that you brought the shotgun for my sake. To make me feel secure that if someone was actually in the house you could defend yourself without getting hurt…thanks dad!)
You’ve always made me feel safe and I’ve always known that you are available when I need you.
You are such a kind person, not a lazy bone in your body, an absolute HOOT!
What a story teller you are! It is so much fun hearing them I just wish I was better at remembering them. Guess I need to start recording you!
I am so thankful for the fun and laughter you bring into our lives, like on special occasions as you read your cards…
You keep us all in stitches while you try to act like you don’t know why…
All eyes stay on YOU because WE don’t want to miss a thing…
You are one in a million and I am so glad you are my dad!
Happy Father’s Day Dad,
I love you more than words can say!
