Chapter 6, Page 18, Book 21


Son, brother, father, lover, friend.  There is room in the heart for all the affections, as there is room in heaven for all the stars.

Victor Hugo

June 18th - Happy Fathers Day!

A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed and yet one of most valuable assets in our society.

Billy Graham

I’d like to take time today to wish my sons and my friends a Happy Father’s Day!  I know I’m a day early but I like to save my Sunday’s for thankfulness.

Of course I’’m thankful for all fathers, without you,  where would any of us be.  I’m thankful that my husband was a wonderful Dad and that his sons all followed in his footsteps.  He set a good example for them.

In this day and age there sadly are some that don’t take the responsibility of being a father and walk away.  I can never understand how any one could walk away from their children and leave them behind.  So here’s to all the men that stayed and proved themselves to be good fathers.  

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

Theodore Hesburgh

I think family is one of the mainstays of our world.  As long as there is families, the world will continue on.  Families have a crucial role in our development.  They bear the primary responsibility for the education of children as well as instilling values of citizenship and belonging to society.

From the first moment of a child’s life, they depend on parents and family to protect them and provide for them.

Family isn’t just important, It’s what is most important!

I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day with your family!

The most important thing in the world  is family and love.

John Wooden
