It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 6, Page 16, Book 13

My family at my youngest grandson's 1st birthday in May 2013. 4 of my sons and my SIL and their families are in the picture.  2 were missing, but they are all dads.

Specially blended for honoring all fathers…

Today is Fathers Day here in the USA.  It's a day to honor all Fathers old and young!

Fathers Are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should...

For, somehow, Father seems to be
The man who pays the bills,
While Mother binds up little hurts
And nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily
To live up to his image
As protector and provider
And hero of the scrimmage...

And perhaps that is the reason
We sometimes get the notion,
That Fathers are not subject
To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,
Where no one else can see
You'll find he's sentimental
And as soft as he can be...

But he's so busy every day
In the grueling race of life,
He leaves the sentimental stuff
To his partner and his wife...

But Fathers are just wonderful
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolades of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness...

And like Our Heavenly Father,
He's a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.

Thank heaven for father's who share laughter and love and make family times the most blessed of times…

Blessed be all fathers, they give so much of themselves for the benefit of their children and family

Happy Fathers Day!

For us whose fathers are gone, we have good memories. Helen knows how to spread ink with real thoughts.
