Dad!

I found this quote by someone unknown and thought it perfect as a tribute to Daddy's all over the world, as we celebrate Father's Day on Sunday!

A father is someone that
holds your hand at the fair
makes sure you do what your mother says
holds back your hair when you are sick
brushes that hair when it is tangled because mother is too busy
lets you eat ice cream for breakfast
but only when mother is away
he walks you down the aisle
and tells you everythings gonna be ok
Thomas Balcomb Scott - my dear Dad!
I love this one - I can almost hear him laughing - wearing his signature hat!
Happy Father's Day Dad - you gave me the greatest gift of all, you taught me to believe in myself, to be kind and loving and never to be ashamed of who I was! I love you!

Now you have me all sad and missing the family back in PE. Not nice being away from the kids on Father's Day. I'm looking forward to Sunday though.

Very nice. I try not to even think about it being Father's Day since mine is in Heaven. Daughter did mention that she wanted to take her Dad and me out to lunch Sunday. I had a great Daddy. He is the reason I can think of my Heavenly Father as a Daddy, too. I do miss him so.
