This Week...A Celebrations of Fathers and Father-Figures in Our Lives

Let’s not forget that tomorrow is Father’s Day. I often feel sorry for fathers on this day because it seems like mothers get a lot more perks for Mother’s Day.

 

 

 

 

To be the father of a nation is a great honor, but to be the father of a family is a greater joy. Nelson Mandela



Don’t misunderstand...Mothers deserve all of the honors, accolades, and special treatments we can give them.

 

 

It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. Johann Friedrich von Schiller

 

 

But does anyone give a father a rose when they walk into a restaurant on Father’s Day?  No...because they’re all out in the heat cooking ribs and steaks on the grill!! 

 

 

A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.   Billy Graham

Thank you to those fathers and father figures who volunteer their time to coach our future pro-athletes, and to those who spend their weekends pitching tents, building campfires, and teaching survival tactics to rowdy children. 

Thank you to those dads who stand strong for us when our own world seems to be crumbling and who stand up to those who would do us harm. 




Thank You to fathers and father figures who make sacrifices daily so that their loved ones will have what they need. 

He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. Clarence Budington Kelland

 

 

Happy Father’s Day to all fathers and father figures!

Hi Kathy Streib - Besides the fathers in my life who are living, this is a special time to remember the fathers who have gone before us.

My father was a very special man and I could not have asked for a more supportive person. 

Have a very special weekend.

Kathy,

We have my niece and her fiancé visiting with us.  I was just telling stories about my father, her grandfather.  Sadly he died before she was born...A

A beautiful tribute to dad's, Kathy. I have sent my husband flowers for Father's Day to show appreciation for everything he does for our family. It has been the only time he has received them from anyone!

Wayne Martin I know that you'll be enjoying Father's Day with your family. 

Kat Palmiotti I think it's often not until we're older that we understand the lessons we were taught by our fathers and our mothers.

I have been blessed to have known my kids for such a long time. I only got to spend the first 19 years with my father before I went off to war and he passed. I hope I have made love for them apparent to our years together Kathy Streib

Morning Kathy.

I got to spend a limited time with my dad before he passed.  I learned so much from him, that I can never repay what he taught me.

My father was such an important role model to me and my siblings. We learned about God, family, how to treat people with respect and so many other things.  It was how he lived. I have heard from those who worked with my Dad, or even extended family members, that said he was a mentor to them.
