Fathers Day is here! Thanks for Dads!

This year Fathers Day lands on Sunday June 19, 2011
  here in the U.S.

Here is a special message for all those wonderful 
 men who will be celebrating this Sunday. 
   This is for all the loving, generous, kind, inspirational and patient (this is the hardest!) male figures that teach and encourage (many) without knowing, to children that may or may not even be their own... you may be a husband, father, grandfather, uncle, policeman, neighbor, brother, son, a soldier, the teacher in front of class, mailman, milkman (yep, there are still some around and I am not being cheesy here!) or just someone special in another persons life. 
This is a salute to you!

I would be remiss if I did not mention all the single moms who may not have a "special someone" to help them with this tremendous task of raising a child, I thank you too. Just like I thank men during my Mother's day post. Maybe in my list above you will be reminded of a special person (I hope you do!) who does have some positive influence on your child and offer them a simple thank you. Raising children, especially in these hard times takes more than a village, and if you are lucky to have just one person who may offer help or support, a small acknowledgement is always appreciated. Hopefully some of these special talents, helping hands, and morals will be passed on for the next generation to continue to inspire and  encourage the young ones coming up behind them.

God Bless you all. 
  Enjoy your day, and Thank you!


  1. Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. This is a sad day for me. But as a simple Sunday, I'll enjoy it.

  3. Without fathers, most of us wouldn't be here. If you're lucky enough to still have your father around, take the time to show some appreciation!

  4. A great post...Happy Fathers Day to all Dad's
