Thoughts On Father's

A Father's Love
A father is respected because he gives his children leadership...
appreciated because he gives his children care...
valued because he gives his children time...
loved because he gives his children the one thing they treasure most - himself.

The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.
Proverbs 20:7

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection. - Sigmund Freud

Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.  - Anne Geddes

My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. - Clarence Budington Kelland

Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, singers of songs.
- Pam Brown

A father's love: while you can't buy it or wrap it, perhaps it may be the most valuable of all gifts.
- Suzanne Bartolomei

My father and my Grandfather are true Dad's in every essence of the word - they lead by example, they protect, they give of themselves - they are my hero's.  My mom and grandmother tell me how much I loved the men in my life from day one.  I'm so thankful to have their love, their support, their guidance, and most of all their friendship. 
See how tight my left hand is grasping my Dad's coat ....AW!  Throughout life I've learned it's hard to let go even when it's time, and it's what's best.  And then there are other times when it's not so much letting go, but just loosening that grip!  And on the other hand it's holding tight to the "good" things and memories that makes life special as it can and should be!
