Celebrating the Father's in my Life

Celebrating the Father's in my life today. You've heard it before and once again I will say I am thankful for Mountain Man and his natural inclination to teach our children. Growing up I had an amazing example in my own father - Daddy. He lived more in his 46 year life than most ever will. The impact he left is alive and well today. Thank you Lord for the blessing of my Daddy and Husband.

This was really neat Proclamation I found by Former President Bush's on Father's Day so I'm sharing:

"Fathers play a unique and important role in the lives of their children. As mentor, protector, and provider, a father fundamentally influences the shape and direction of his child's character by giving love, care, discipline, and guidance. As we observe Father's Day, our nation honors fatherhood and urges fathers to commit themselves selflessly to the success and well-being of their children. And we reaffirm the importance of fathers in the lives of their children. Raising a child requires significant time, effort, and sacrifice; and it is one of the most hopeful and fulfilling experiences a man can ever know. A father can derive great joy from seeing his child grow from infancy to adulthood. As a child matures into independence and self reliance, the value of a parent's hard work, love, and commitment comes to fruition.

Responsible fatherhood is important to a healthy and civil society. Numerous studies confirm that children whose fathers are present and involved in their lives are more likely to develop into prosperous and healthy adults. Children learn by example; and they need their father's presence as examples of virtue in their daily lives. A child's sense of security can be greatly enhanced by seeing his parents in a loving and faithful marriage."

Hope you are enjoying the men in your life.

Hi friend~ Enjoyed catching up with you on your blog. Loved the pictures of the tigers in their masks! :-)

I thought of you and your dad as I was writing my post on Father's Day. I know you're missing your dad today like I'm missing mine...missing them, but with deep thankfulness to have had dads like them in our lives.

Happy Father's Day to your family and to your Mountain Man. Love you... Jen

So many of us missing our dad's. My precious daddy only lived 58 years and I miss him as much today as I did 14 years ago.

Thanks for this great post.
