Happy Dad’s Day

On the website The Board of Wisdom, this is the number one favourite “father” quote:

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

Unknown was very wise.

Happy Father’s Day to all, and to all a good day.  (I wrote an Ode to my Dad on Friday’s post—a reblog with some new thoughts–I have included a link in Related Articles)

Bliss is having a Dad who picks you up when you fall down—in so many ways.
