Tribute to a Wonderful Dad

Hoping all the fathers out there are having a great Father's Day!  I wanted to share something my husband posted on Facebook today. I think it is a beautiful and touching tribute to his dad.  His dad did a good job in raising up his son to be a godly man and good provider for his children.  He is a hard working,  over all wonderful man. I could go on and on about his attributes but I think reading this will show how blessed I to be his wife. Now here's what he had to say about his dad:


"It has been over 30 years since God needed a dependable , honest to a fault, God fearing man to join him in heaven. I still miss you after all these years, you had me late in life, but still took the time to teach me all about baseball, its history and beauty. I learned to take chances, watch and learn from mistakes and to look for the good in everyone and everything. You encouraged me to follow a dream and not look back. You watched patiently when I failed and were always there to pick me up, brush myself and keep going. You taught me responsibility and to do everything possible for the good of my family. Others always came first in your eyes and you managed to raise 8 of us with a firm loving hand. I moved far away and was not there at the end but I always knew I was in your thoughts as you were in mine. I loved you then and I love my memories of you now. Happy Fathers day dad, I know your watching."

How thoughtful of your husband Vickie. I only wish I had a dad that caring. But we can't have everything! I had a great mom and grandmother so it's all good.
And I still think that raising that many children takes an amazing set of parents!! Love Di ♥
