that made me think of my sweet husband –
"My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person,
he believed in me."
~ Jim Valvano
"Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance."
~ Ruth E. Renkel
"My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew
"There are three stages of a man's life: He believes in Santa Claus, he doesn't believe in Santa Claus, he is Santa Claus."
"The most important thing a father can do for his children is
to love their mother."
"Train up a child in the way which he should go
and when he is old he will not depart from it"
~ Proverbs 22:6
He’s done all of these things well –
I’ve been so blessed to have him be my partner in parenting!
Happy Father’s Day!
[Unfortunately, I don't have the young father-photos scanned -
but there's some great shots there too!]
