Happy Fathers Day

Posted by cotojo on June 16, 2007

A Father means so many things…
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he’s a man like you…

HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL FATHERS, and spare a thought for those who cannot be with their children on this day.

The greatest gift I ever had came from My Heavenly Father, and I call him Dad!
