Let the Festivities Begin

Tonight, Karyn, Melinda, Andrea, and I went to dinner to celebrate "the Andreas' " birthdays. Three of us got Diablos and we urged Karyn to try them all at the same time. Melinda serenaded the event. I only caught half of Andrea in the video.

As usual, we shut the place down. Crazy fun times. I love these gals!

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes and dinner and EVERYTHING!

And Happy Birthday, Andrea, tomorrow!!!

On Fathers

On this day we choose to honor our fathers, I want to say thank you for believing in me. Thank you for your love and guidance. Thank you for your patience. May you have a wonderful Father's Day! Love you!!

Here are some quotes and poems about dads that I wanted to share. They reminded me of you.

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew

A father carries pictures where his money used to be. ~Author Unknown

The greatest gift I ever had; Came from God; I call him Dad!~Author Unknown

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby

"Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad." -- Anne Geddes

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,
He called it ... Dad

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

A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. ~Author Unknown

Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name. ~William Wordsworth

A Little Girl Needs Daddy

A little girl needs Daddy
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!
Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart.

Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
She'll always find him there.
