Happy Father's Day

Margaret Truman once said this about a father, "It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home – it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love." And it is so true. I have two hero's in my life. Two men who have guided me and continue to guide me in my life. They are my protectors, my friends. They have always been there with their love.
Happy Father's Day to my Dad, "Poppy"...

My children's father, "Big Daddy".
Any man can father a child, but it takes a special man, a "big" man, a man among men to be a "Daddy".
And Happy Father's Day to you and yours. May you have a day filled with love from those you have inspired.

It's so nice to acknowledge our hubby's for being great Dads. My PC is such a good Dad to our kiddos- a gift a I can never repay.

You are so right, Leigh, so right! I miss my late dad so much and I am so grateful for my dear husband, Mr. Man. His quiet demeanor always shows me just how strong and loving he is. Hooray for wonderful daddies!
