Sunday Reflections…

I was thinking about my dad just now… What would I have done without him? What would my son have done without me? Dads are one of, if not THE most important figure in a boys life! Thank God for Dad! 

I was always hanging around my Dad, even at the Fire station. He taught me how to be a man. Now I have a son of my own. With my Dads help ❤️ He has turned out well too 😊

Happy Fathers Day to all the ‘Dads’ out there…

Have a GREAT Fathers Day! I’m going to lunch with my dad and my son to celebrate 🎉  


PS: Enjoy the socks and ties 😉

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.
