Happy Father’s Day!!!

I am so thankful for great Fathers!  They all deserve the very best Father’s Day!

That handsome guy in these pictures is my own Dad.  We call him Papa (well, we didn’t until his Grandchildren started calling him that).  I will never be able to repay him, for what he has done for me and still does for me. 

Thank you, Dad for always believing in me, encouraging me, and for being there for me and my children in so many ways!  Thanks for letting me join you on your Mensa hikes back in High School.  Thanks for taking my children to the bookstore, endlessly!  Thanks for letting me talk your ears off all of these years, and not making me feel like I was!  Thanks for teaching me by being such a caring, sweet, hard working, passionate man!  You mean the world to me!

I am also so thankful for all the other Fathers in my life.  The Father of my Children (of course!), my Brother, and my Brother-In-Laws!  I can’t leave out my two wonderful Grandfathers!  They helped shape my life and gave me so many wonderful memories!  Such truly amazing men, that I am so lucky to know and get to be a part of their lives!  I am so thankful that my children have all these amazing men in their lives as role models, friends, and co-conspirators!  I do believe that it takes a village…I am so thankful for my amazing village!

Thanks to Anjeanette as these pictures were ones she took, and I got them from her personal site!

Your father has one of the kindest and sweetest faces I have ever seen, Rebecca. You are indeed so fortunate to have had a man like him in your life.

Thank you, Pam!

He really is one of the kindest and sweetest men you will ever meet! He helps so many people out all the time! I just love him to death! I do feel so fortunate to have been raised by him, and now to have him in my life (as a person not just as my father). Truly lucky indeed!
