Today, however, I do get to spend Father's Day with my husband! I'm taking him to the movies to see The Happening. A thriller movie our daughter doesn't want to see so we're going while she's working. Usually we spend Sunday's catching up on what we didn't do during the week so today will be fun playing "hooky". Tonight we'll have dinner together as a family.
Dad's are wonderful people in daughter's lives. While they don't always understand us or our strange ways of FEELING things, they love us unconditionally. Since I'm not as eloquent as some, I've found a few thoughts about Dads that say it better than me:
There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself. ~John Gregory Brown, Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery, 1994
Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes. ~Gloria Naylor
A father carries pictures where his money used to be. ~Author Unknown
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby
The greatest gift I ever hadCame from God; I call him Dad!~Author Unknown
So, to the two most wonderful Dads in the world, my father and my husband, I wish you the happiest of Father's Days and the biggest hug ever. I love you both more than you'll ever know.
