Dads are awesome though. Most of the problems in today’s world could be fixed with present, loving dads.

For Dad

There was a time when I was just a thought.

Then I was so new and very tiny.

I slept those days away, growing.

You came to hole my hand as I took small steps.

And caught me when I stumbled.

Then we walked together,

Our footsteps side by side through the years.

Till you grew gray and frail.

I held your hand as you took smaller steps,

And caught you when you stumbled.

You slept those days away,

Then became just a thought.

Rest now brave warrior, amongst your brethren at Arlington. I miss you.

(My dad, gone since 1999,...WW!! & Korea, US Army)

My dad is still here in my life and I'm thankful every day. I'm so blessed to have the parents I had- no doubt they made me who I am today and no amount of thanks could ever do the job they did as parents justice.

My Dad is still here, going to be 76 later this month. However he has us very concerned because he has Afib and so far hasnt done a damn thing about it. Pisses me off actually. I cant make him do anything, but him and i will be having a serious talk soon and i hope that seeing my 2 kids grow up into their teenage years will be incentive enough to get back to the doctor and do what he should to extend his years until God ultimately calls him home.

My dad never hunted, didn't like to fish, pretty much had nothing to do with the outdoors. But he was my biggest fan. He loved to hear the stories, see the pictures, and he shared them with everyone he knew. RIP, pop.

My sympathies go out to all of you guys that have lost their fathers! I know the day will come when my Dad will no longer be around, but until that day comes, I’m going to do my best to make the most of it. We spent a half day on Friday cutting firewood for him and Mom. He takes breaks a little more often, but at 82, he still does pretty darn good.

My pops is in the hospital as we speak. He is not doing well and pray he is at peace. With severe diabetes, kidney failure and a few strokes he is not the same person he used to be. We take it one day at a time.

Quote from Samuel Langhorne Clemmons, "when I was seventeen I thought my old man was the stupidest person on earth, at 21 I was astounded to see what the old guy had learned in four years".
