Happy 68th Birthday Dad

How do we thank someone that has taught us right from wrong--

“What?” I asked

“What what?” my daddy would respond.

Puzzled, this questioning went on until I finally caught on. “Ah, what--yes-- Sir…. “I added—and the conversation continued as my dad wished.

The legacy continues. When my daughter was 4 years-old, we went trick or treating. She came running from a house we had visited yelling, “Momma, I did it, I said my good manners.” The folks laughed and my heart just melted. I thought to myself, "Thank you dad."

How do we thank someone that slayed many monsters along the way? Endless nights, our dad stayed up until we both eventually drifted off into a sweet sleep.

How do we thank someone for cheese eggs.... the best.... in place of beans...praise you Dad!!

How do we thank someone for taking us from crayons to perfume?

How do we thank you – Sir

This daddy--an artist, a Pilot, served in the Air Force, loves music,birds, plants, loves the finer things in life. But most of all he loves his family and he loves Jesus.

I, at one time, wished to be Jacques Cousteau. For my dad had taught me the love of the Ocean. I grew up around the water. The creatures of the water were my family in a sense. I think about the love of each of us now. For we are a family— such as the dear Octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor, in our inner most hearts, ever quite wish to…..Connie

Happy Birthday...belated to your Daddy!

Connie, look at that long hair!

I have missed you SO much! I am praying for you, Friend!

Angie said...

That was the sweetest! I love hearing mom/dads remind kids of manners these days....it is rare...but precious. My girls were always better at remembering them away from me than with me....
You are blessed in your gift of a dad.
Thanks for visiting me Connie!
