Father's Day - Because our Dad's ARE so special

If you are blessed enough to have your Father still with you, then embrace this day. I am lucky, my Dad is still alive. He is 78 years old and still looks great. (doesn't he?) He jokes and still says that someone told him he had a gray hair, but he doesn't believe them. (He didn't have any gray until about 10 years ago)
He is the root of my organizational skills. This is the Master Organizer. He doesn't keep things he can't use. Shortly after my mom died he had a Christmas party he was invited to that was a "white elephant". He wanted to know what that was. When I told him you take some joke gift that you have around the house that no one wants as your gift he said, "But I get rid of things I don't use around the house...what will I do?" LOL
We are actually celebrating our Father's Day next Sunday. My sister will be in town and she hasn't been here for a couple of years. So my brother, sister and I are going to take Dad out to lunch and then to visit my husband's farm to see all the kids.
Enjoy today if you have your Dad. If you don't, enjoy some good memories. Make sure your kids enjoy their dad today if possible.

What a sweet tribute to your dad. Enjoy your time with him next weekend. I'm going to spend some time with mine this afternoon.

I so totally agree with that, do not take your parents for granted. We all seem to until we get older. Good to see your father.
