My Daddy

He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.
~Clarence Budington Kelland
Blessed indeed is the man
who hears many gentle voices call him father!
~Lydia M. Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836

I love my father as the stars
he's a bright shining example
and a happy twinkling in my heart.
~Adabella Radici

A father carries pictures where his money used to be.
~Author Unknown
Are we not like two volumes of one book?
~Marceline Desbordes-Valmore

Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.

~Gloria Naylor

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Happy Father's Day!

Oh, so sweet! You made me realize that I haven't even called my dad today. What is wrong with me? :) We spent the day over at my in-laws. (They're the ones with the silo in the background.) I'll be calling him first thing tomorrow.

'He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.'

I've always loved that quote. It truly symbolizes my boys with my husband, as well.

I'm sure your dad appreciates your thoughts of him.

Molly said...

How sweet. Great pictures you have!

I love the quote-
A father carries pictures where his money used to be.

During times of financial trouble, when I feel I must quit being a full time Mom and become a part time employee- that quote will help me keep my priorities in perspective. Thank You.
