Sunday Favorites... Father's Day 2008... Revisited...



This post was originally published on 06/15/08. This was such a touching tribute from my hubby to his dad... who this year will celebrate his 60th Father's Day... I thought today would be a good day to share it again...
Please visit Chari at Happy to Design for more Sunday Favorites... my new favorite Meme!


Happy 59th Father's Day Dad
Dad

Every year as I understand more about life...

As I learn more about myself,

As I see more of the world around me...

I realize, and I am grateful for, what a great Dad I've always had in you.

Happy Father's Day,

Love, your son, Ricky


My hubby's dad is 83. He asked me to make his dad a card for Father's Day this year, wishing him a Happy 59th Father's Day. He said he didn't know why he started thinking about how many Father's Days his Dad had celebrated, but when he realized it was 59, he was in awe. So I made the above card for my Father-In-Law from his second son; my husband, Ricky.

I was at a service today where the question was asked "What makes a giant out of a man?". Obviously Ricky and his dad know the answer.

Dixie girl..this is so sweet, it made me cry.

Dixie, I'm so glad you reposted this. I missed it before. So much attention is paid to Mother's that some kids forget the importance of their Fathers.
This was such a sweet tribute.

Very touching and what a great photo.
Good idea Ricky. I might use it to make my dad one.(the idea not the photo)

Hope you day was restful,

Dixie, that is so sweet it makes me want to cry (in a good way). I'm glad you did this, and your FIL no doubt was very grateful for it. What a sweet card! Happy 60th Father's Day to your sweet FIL. I wish my dad and my FIL were still with us.

XO,

Sheila :-)
