It’s Father’s Day!

What more reason is there to pause and say thanks?

I had a great dad.

The best, really.

I know he was not perfect. His charm was that he knew that and never once tried to pretend.

I miss Dad every day.

He had some challenges in his life, but he did not let them steal his joy. That is a lesson I need to learn.


Through the years, we had many things happen. I so appreciate my dad’s good outlook and humor. I miss his music and the way our three boys, now mostly grown up, adored him.

It’s a good thing to remember.

Wish he were still here. Someday soon, we’ll have a reunion.

This is Dad.

Two of my favorites! Dad and 🌻

The father to our boys, my husband, is another gold gem. 💎 🏆 ✨

He spent his Father’s Day working for others today. That’s what makes him happy.

So blessed

We are truly blessed and try not to take him for granted, but I know we could appreciate him more.

Hug a dad today, and do something fun!

Happy Father’s Day!

  3. Hi Laurie! I love your reminder to “Hug a Dad”! What a blessing a good father is! I was blessed to have one of the best – a man who cherished faith and family – and I miss him every day, just as you miss yours! I’m also blessed to be married to a wonderful man who has provided for and loved our family! I thank God for the gift of these special men! Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
