Father’s Day Props….

He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse. Malachi 4:6

Hey everyone, I found this on a Father’s Day website a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t wait to post this, it is incredible!! I want to credit not only the fathers who are there for their own biological children, but the step-fathers, and ANY man who is positively stepping in, influencing a youngster to be the best he/she can be by his OWN example. And of course, much respect to the single Moms, like myself holding it down for the family, puttting herself LAST so that her kids are taken care of.

4 years: My Daddy can do anything!
7 years: My Dad knows a lot…a whole lot.
8 years: My father does not know quite everything.
12 years: Oh well, naturally Father does not know that either.
14 years: Oh, Father? He is hopelessly old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh, that man-he is out of date!
25 years: He knows a little bit about it, but not much.
30 years: I must find out what Dad thinks about it.
35 years: Before we decide, we will get Dad’s idea first.
50 years: What would Dad have thought about that?
60 years: My Dad knew literally everything!
65 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.

Just want to send a special shout out to my boyfriend, Tony, who raised his girls when they were toddlers singlehandedly. The ex-wife decided she didn’t want to be a wife or mother any longer, so she took off, WOW!!!!

When asked how did he manage, he’d shrug his shoulders and  say, “I was just  being a father to my girls”. Wow, I wish more men out there would step up to the plate and take care of their responsibilities, including MY own children’s dads. ‘Nuff said.
