Sunday, June 17, 2018 is the 108th anniversary of the first Father's Day, which is celebrated on the third Sunday of June.
I miss my Daddy and wish he were he to celebrate with. The king of "clean jokes" and a friend to every child and animal, my Daddy-O was one in a million. It's hard to believe it's been 21 years since he "moved on up" to heaven.
I'm blessed with a loving husband who's been a great father and protector to both of our children.
My beloved brother is a funny and compassionate role model.
Our grandfathers were both fascinating storytellers and our favorite people.
Dear friends stand in for us, providing support, understanding and another place of comfort to our children.
It all proves that being a loving Daddy is the best gift of all.
If you're lucky enough to still have your father with you, even if he's ornery, grouchy or sometimes a pain in the neck, tell him you love him anyway and be sure to give him a big hug and kiss!
