Happy Father's Day...!

Even though my own dad has been gone for a very long time, I still have many fond memories of him.

Like most, I can think of so many things I wish I would have said while he was here. I still say them, hoping that somehow he hears them and knows what's in my heart!

If I can be just half the man my Father was...then I would consider that to be a wonderful tribute to him. There is no way I could ever fill his shoes, but just maybe I can follow down the path he showed me while he was here in person.

I'm sure that he will always whisper in my ear and in my heart, showing me the way!

Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit! Happy Father's Day!

Hey JoJo...
That's what friends are for, sweetie! Even though it was a sad time, it did allow you and I to get better acquainted with one another...and that was a good thing!

I do hope you have a great day, and I appreciate the fact you could stop by today!

Thank you for stopping by, sweetie!

Happy late father's day to you sir! Hope it was a great day for you. Kind of jealous of people with good fathers as my own dad has not been that to me--more an example of what not to do. My husband, on the other hand, is a great dad for our kids--sure blessed to have him to celebrate the day with. :)
