Happy Father’s Day!
Jun. 20
I am so blessed to have such a loving, supportive and kind father.  He as been by my side my whole life; cheering me on when I needed a cheerleader, applauding me when I succeeded, picking me up when I fell, always there with a hug, a laugh or a kind word.  Even with the challenges of his own life, he always has put my mother,  my sisters, brother and I first.  My mom and dad will be celebrating 50 years of marriage this summer.  Happy Father's Day Dad! And Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful men who make a difference in someone else's life.  It is your day! VIEW POST
