Happy Father's Day

I was blessed to be born to a Father
That was proud to have me..
Being that he was 54 when I was born,
And I was his first child.
How lucky could he get!!!!
I guess I was the lucky one really
I had him in my life for 21 years
And now~-
He's been gone 40 years
And I still miss him......
My brother came along 4 years later,
And he turned out to be a good Dad too.
He was lucky because he had a good role model.

MyHero has been a good Dad to his boys..
Taking them on a boy's outing once a yearPlus~He was always proud of his little girls

And..he also treats
The Brawny Man as if he is his own son...
Not always a good thing..
Because it comes with a price..
Free advice-
Whether you want it or not.
In spite of all the free Fatherly advice,
As you can plainly see~
TheBrawnyMan loves being a Dad.

And that brings us to the newest Dad
In our family...TheIslandScout
The one that adores
His Little Man.
He lives just far enough away
To ignore the free advice:>)
For those that were fortunate enough to have
A good and caring Father..
Count your blessings.
For those that have had less than a perfect Dad..
Count your blessings also. the end of the day...
We are all fathered by
The Perfect Father~
The Heavenly Father.
The one who loves each one of us
