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,

  2. 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,

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. 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,
