What Makes A good Dad?(Happy Father's Day)

Hello Friends,

Hope all is well. Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. I am so thankful for my Dad. He has taught me a lot over the years which has made me into the person I am today. Not a day goes by when I don't think of something that he has said in the past that I can drawn on for wisdom.

Words really can't do justice, but the following two poems pretty much sum the way I feel about my father. God has been good to me and that started with allowing me to be born into such a great family.

Enjoy the following poems. Share them with your Dad and friends. Celebrate your time together, and celebrate times past. Every moment is a moment to create new memories. Don't let them slip by. Many blessings, and Always Feel Good!




ME AND DAD AT MY GRADUATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI. HE ALWAYS ENCOURAGED ME TO "ALWAYS BE LEARNING". HE TAUGHT ME THAT EDUCATION IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE IS VERY IMPORTANT.


Happy Father's Day

A Dad is a person
who is loving and kind,
And often he knows
what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens,
suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one
of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
and helpful and strong
In all that you do,
a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him
deep in your heart.
And each year that passes,
you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud
just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring,
for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad
