Just a little something for my Dad.

... for all the sacrifices you made for us over the years (and there were many) to make sure we had food, clothes and shelter... you da man!

... for setting an example for us to follow, of discipline, honor, and and respect for others... you da man!

... for letting us see and know, that you loved our Mom... you da man!

... for all the camping weekends we spent together as a family growing up... you da man!

... for all the Easy Bake oven goodies you ate with enthusiasm, (in spite of how nasty they were)... you da man!

... for all the Father Daughter date nights you never missed... you da man!

... for getting up and out at 3:00 in the morning to pull me out of a snowy ditch, and not raise hell... you da man!

... for teaching me about money. How to earn, how to save, and how to spend... you da man!

... for making sure I was ready for the outside world, away from your protective cloak... you da man!

... for accepting, and loving my husband like he was one of your sons... you da man!

... for just being my dad... you da man!


Today my Dad is completing a cross country move, from Montana back to Iowa. He and my mom have been living out west for the last nine years, and they've decided it was time to come back home. I wish I could have been there to help, but my Uncles are with them and they will get the job done.

Meanwhile, here in the sunny south, Harley and I plan to take a nice long ride today. My thoughts will be with my dad... wondering... "is he there yet?"

Happy Fathers Day Dad! I love you and appreciate all you've done for me... you da man!

Sounds like you have an incredible relationship with your dad. I love seeing that, it is something I don't have, I'm very happy for you.

Keep writing, I enjoy the read.

IHG, MRs. RC & mq01... thank you all for your comments. It's easy to "honor thy father"... cause he's still my hero.

MHL... thank you, but, I didn't mean to make you cry. :)

Baron... I enjoy both too much... I hope I never stop.

Masterchief... I'm sure she will. ;)
