Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day!

I'm so fortunate to have a great dad.  I realize how rare that can be.

My dad always made me feel special growing up.  As a teenager, I had a curfew and if I wasn't home on time Dad would come and look for me.  I always had a dime in my shoe every time I went on a date.  My dad made sure of that.  I know I'm dating myself with that one; lol.  No cell phones back then!

My dad is very proud of his Norwegian heritage.  My maiden name is Sumstad.  There is a town in Norway named Sumstad where my paternal grandparents raised their family.  The farm is still owned by the family and I've had the privilege of actually visiting it.  I hope to one day bring my other man (my hubby) there to visit.

Here are the two men in my life; my dad and Greg.  I love them both!

Happy Father's Day!
Blessings and love,

What a sweet tribute to
your dad. You are doubly
blessed to have your dad
still with you and your
dear husband Greg as well.

Very nice tribute to your dad, Debbie. My son had a cockateel like the one your dad is holding. I took care of the bird when Allen went away to college. I felt so bad because the bird died. I think he missed my son. Surely it wasn't because I didn't do a good job of taking care of him. I think he just died of loneliness.
Happy Birthday to your dad and your hubby. I like the dime in the shoe idea. It's been a long time since a dime could make a phone call too. LOL
Hugs & blessings,

Love the tribute to your Dad...You are very lucky...My Dad died 4 years ago and have no idea if he ever loved me. Really no idea if he ever loved anyone.

Debbie said...

What a great pic of your dad! Your right, how blessed you are....My relationship with my father was always a hard and difficult one. I lost him when I was 25. How I had always longed for a dad like yours. I do feel fortunate however that my children have just the best dad in the world. Hope you have a good day tomorrow! HUGS

Hi Debbie,
What a wonderful blessing to have a dad that is so special, and you clearly have had many wonderful times and memories together. He is adorable, and has such a kind face. I love the picture of him and your husband together with their arms around each other.

I wish you all a wonderful Fathers Day,

God bless you friend,
