A Father Is A Man Who Has Photos In His Wallet Where His Money Used To Be

As most of you know my Dad’s stroke has presented us all with a few challenges over the past few months but despite losing the use of his right arm and subsequently his independence, he has borne this with a shedload of humour and good grace. We’re luckier than most but who knows what’s around the corner and we hope that he will eventually make a full recovery. So today on Father’s Day I want to say a silent prayer of thanks for my Dad and all the millions of great fathers out there who whose love and guidance have provided us all with a solid foundation that has enabled us to take on the world.

Dads, are mostly ordinary men turned into heroes, adventurers, storytellers & singer of songs – Pam Brown

  1. Happy belated Father’s Day to your father. On June 15th, I was still recovering (and still am) from my computer meltdown. I had to get a new computer and still have figured out how to use Windows 8.1. This is when having a cell phone as backup comes in handy. I am so very happy to be back.

    Father’s day is a very special day for me. My father passed about 3 years ago. He left me with such good memories. I am grateful for his compassion, encouragement, wisdom and courage. He continues to inspire the best in me.

    “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” Umberto Eco, Foucault’s Pendulum
