Sunday Reflections…

I’m having my coffee and thinking about what’s next today… It’s Father’s Day! And lunch is at my house… I’m counting my blessings this morning ❤️

My dad through the years, with me and friends and his brother as well. Happy Father’s Day to all the other “Dads” out there!

I think of my dad, my grandfather’s and so many great men that I looked up too all these years. Role models, teachers, providers, hero’s ❤️

I think of my son as well. He made me a dad😊 And will one day make a great one himself!

A little collage of my boy, the kid who made me a Father and helped me become a Dad…

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, Pops, Fathers and Daddy’s out there! Today is YOUR day!

He never looks for praises.

He’s never one to boast.

He just goes on quietly working

For those he loves the most.

His dreams are seldom spoken.

His wants are very few,

And most of the time his worries

Will go unspoken, too.

He’s there… a firm foundation

Through all our storms of life,

A sturdy hand to hold onto

In times of stress and strife.

A true friend we can turn to

When times are good or bad.

One of our greatest blessings,

The man that we call Dad.

Father’s Day is Coming!

In just a little over 2 days, Father’s Day is gonna happen. Are you prepared?

I’m more of a Dad than a Father… At least I’d like to think so. “Dad” is a little less formal… I know a few Pops’ and a couple “Old Mans” and quite a few Daddy’s too 😊 I know I’ve got a great dad! When I think of my Dad many words come to mind… Dad, Pop, Role Model, Teacher, Leader, Provider… more!

That’s my dad.He made a living running into burning buildings, saving lives and educating others on better ways… Best Dad Award Winner💥

So Sunday is the Big Day! What do you have planned for Your Dad? Better get cracking’!

Sunday Reflections… | Fathers Day Milestones | 50th. Anniversary of Being a DAD!

I have been looking for a 50th Anniversary card for Dads… Couldn’t find one! No calendar either… I don’t want to let a 50th for my Dad go by without a little recognition! Let me explain…

I have been a dad now for 17 years, my son is 17 years old- I am 50 which means my dad has been at it for half a century! WOW! It’s a very surreal thing! I can literally see that history repeats itself now 😊 Sometimes the things that come out of my mouth, instantaneously pop into my memory & I can see and hear my own Dad saying the exact same thing to me 30 or 40 years ago 😮 Surreal!

I Thank God that I have had this opportunity to have my Father (worlds Best Dad) & my own Son (worlds Best Son) right by my side all these years! It’s a blessing and a pleasure that I can’t truly put into words.

That’s my Dad on the right. And that’s my Son 2nd from the left in the black hat. We are going out to lunch later today to celebrate Fathers Day.

Happy 50th Fathers Day to my Dad! And, Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there today!

One of my favorite pictures! My Dad, my 1st dog Heidi & Me wearing my Dads hat and coat 😊

“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.”

PS: A prayer for those who’s fathers have passed today. Remember the good times.
