father's day is an awesome holiday. but bittersweet when you miss your dad. i have several friends who this is their first w/o their dad, and i send *HUGS* out to them!! this is my 7th w/o mine, but i had 29 father's days before that, so i'm pretty fortunate. he was a great and FABULOUS daddy, and i'm very grateful that i get to call him mine.
he was a great example of husband and father - i do think he spoiled me a lot. btwn him & grandpa forest, it's no wonder i'm not married. who could compare? maybe that's why i don't date... lol no, there are many reasons, but i don't think i can truly blame it on that.
anyway, tangent - oh, aren't you used to those?? LOL
so, my dad gave me a love of the Lord, vacation, road trips, reading, buck rogers, butter pecan ice cream, and randomness. : ) i love you, daddy, and i miss you but am happy you're with our Father above, playing golf or catch & release fishing, or whatever it is we get to do in Heaven. *HUGS*
he was also a pretty good example for phil... : )
