Daddy's Day

When you're grown up, you appreciate your daddy even more. I'm thankful for the daddy I have. He's always been there for our family....always working hard to provide for his family.

When I was a baby, they tell me he was the only one that could get me to sleep at night...he had a certain rocking method. As a little girl, I liked to put on his boots and walk in them or stand on his feet while he walked or danced around with me. When I started playing the piano, he "suffered through" all that beginners practice, but loved it when I played Fur Elise...and he still talks about loving that song. When I was a teenager, he wasn't real easy on boys that came around. But when the one did come around that was "the one", it was important to me that I had my daddy's blessing...and I did.




Daddy is Pop to the grandkids and he's a good one too. They all have nicknames given to them by him (and so do my brother and me). He is a little bit of a push-over though when it comes to the grandkids.

As you know, my mom and dad live next door, so I'm blessed to have my parents close by. There's hardly a day that goes by that daddy doesn't stop by our house to bring in the mail and/or to say hi.

My daddy is the best and I'm blessed to have him! Happy Father's Day, Daddy!

I love you!

So sweet and you are certainly blessed to have him there with you! My dad has been gone for about 16 years now but it is amazing how I can still see his face in my mind, thanks goodness I can still do that:)

You are very blessed. I will have to admit I am jealous. I lost my dad when i was 14, 25 years ago but i imagine that he would have been a great grand-dad like yours is to your children. Have a great day!!!

Glad to read about you daddy and to know that you have been blessed with a great father. Enjoy the day. We are celebrating this evening with a cook-out at our daughter and son-in-loves.

What a blessing to still have both of your parents and that they live close by. I lost my dad 32 years ago. Miss him everyday.

Neat post, Tammy. I know your Dad is very special to you. You are SO fortunate to have them living next door. I wrote my post about my sweet Dad also. I miss him so very much.

Have a wonderful Father's Day and give YOUR Dad a big hug from me.
Hugs,
