Happy Father’s Day

It feels appropriate to wish a very happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there in this great big world. Being a dad is a great thing, to enjoy time with your kids and share the everyday joy and beauty of their growth is something very special. Taking time to appreciate all the little things they do and recognizing that they are an awesome part of this big world will cause them to grow into wonderful people!

Take time to give your favorite dads a big hug and kiss today and thank them for all they do for you and others!

This is my dad…

This Polaroid was taken on Christmas about twenty three years ago. The bench, or stepstool, is what I gave my dad as his gift that year. I had made it in wood shop at school and from the moment I started it I knew it was going to be for him. My dad has been a carpenter / craftsman / contractor just about my entire life and I was very nervous that he would appreciate this gift. He loved it and could not stop hugging me for it.

I will be hugging you back a little later today dad. I know you don’t read this but it still seemed like the right thing to do to say happy Father’s Day and I love you.

Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome dads out there, you know who you are!

Your gift came from your heart and your hands, far more precious than anything found in any store. Parents end up with a collection of strange little treasures. Items that they'll keep forever,such as oddly deformed ashtrays fashioned from clay and love, a card crafted with manila paper, crayons, a ton of glitter and just as much passion. These are priceless gifts that childhood leaves behind for parents to relish in their memories and treasure the love that they express.

Awwww, so nice! Enjoy your day with your Dad. My sister and I are making lunch for mine. I enjoy my time with him too. I made him a special card. :)
Can't wait for my package! Yay!

What a wonderful gift. I think the gifts from children are the best. I have cards the kids made and some things from shop, like shelves and a treasures.
All the antiques in the world can not come up to the value of these things for me.
