On Father’s Day 2017


I’m not a Dad.  I have a Dad.  

I have memories.  Of good times.  Some that were a bit more challenging.  

There are stories I remember.  

Experiences that a part of who I am.  

That’s life.   And I am grateful.     

To be my Dad's son. And to know him. Not just as a Father. But as a person.


Today.  Father’s Day 2017.   

I wish all Dads a Happy Father’s Day.  

Whether you say it in person.  Over the phone.  Maybe even by text.  

Perhaps it will be a moment of silence.   Thoughtfully.   


Enjoy your day.  Remember the meaning behind it.   


When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.

Mark Twain



My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.

Jim Valvano


My father was my teacher. But most importantly he was a great dad.

Beau Bridges



My father used to say that it's never too late

to do anything you wanted to do. And he said,

'You never know what you can accomplish until you try.'

Michael Jordan



I gave my father $100 and said,

“Buy yourself something that will make your life easier.”

So he went out and bought a present for my mother.

My Father was a wise man

My dad was 56 when he passed away and I was only 22. I wish with all my heart that I could have had him to guide me through my parenting years and he could have seen his great-grandchildren. Thank you for these blessed thoughts that I don't think of most days. Ph
