My daddy will always be my knight in shining armor. Even though this year he lost a kidney to cancer and is very frustrated with his now limited strength and ability....I will always see him as the strong person he was when he carried me on his shoulders as a little girl.

He was the one who taught me to ice skate, to swim, to ride my bike. He could take a car apart, fix it and put it all back together again. He gave me a hammer and let me help him build a garage with him. He worked two jobs so my mom could stay home with us kids....but he always had energy to go swimming with us on the weekend. He made an ordinary day special. Such as, the first day it turned 60 degrees in Ohio was the day he would take us to get a root beer float at A&W. And he never forgot that year after year. He always had a box of candy for us on Valentines Day. And I'll never forget the first year after I was married and was living in Naples Italy with my husband. I was all alone on Valentine's Day....hubby was out to sea.....and I was homesick and missing my Dad. And there in my mailbox on the base was a box of Valentine's candy from my Dad! That meant more to me than he may ever know. It was the last year he sent one....because I did have a husband now....but it was the year that I needed it the most!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all of you Daddy's out there. Remember that the gift of your time that you give to your children is what they will remember. Not the expensive present that they think they can't live without today.....those they will forget. They will remember fishing with you....or swimming....or riding bikes together....or playing cards at night.....or eating popcorn on Sunday nights while watching a movie together!

And to my own husband....who is a great Daddy....Happy Father's Day honey! And it is only 2 more days and a wake up until we can have sex again!

Now I am crying for certain. I just read MzHunny's Father's Day post and it caused me to change my decision to not write anything today. Your husband is a VERY fortunate man indeed and I'm sure he realizes that. Does he ever buy candy for your daughters on Valentines Day? That was an unheard of thing in my home when I was growing up.

Here is a link to my thoughts about Father's Day.

My Dad taught me respect , the reward of hardwork , right from wrong and appreciation of the outdoors but he was also a drunk who abused my Mother until I convincsd her to leave when i was 15 , I saw him once since but not before he died years later , I still despite it all loved my father and i have no kids so its a somber day for me ... Hey are you going to put glitter on it before going to doc lmao use alot Lewis

Sounds like he is very special.
Daughter is always a part of Valentine's day. And our anniversary since it is hers too. She was a part of our wedding.
Thanks for the wishes.

Your Dad sounds like a great bloke. If only more were like him.

I hope the two days go quickly, but I suspect they won't. Good luck.

You know, I lost my father 16 years ago, when I was 27, much to young to loose him. But your post make me think of the things that always remind me of him. Drinking Cream soda, his favorite, smelling cigar smoke, he always smoked cigars, telling jokes, he was full of them and watching his two favorite movies, Somewhere in Time and Continental Divide. When I do these things, it's like he's here with me and I really do feel his presence. Thanks for the wonderful memories.
