Whether your kids are human or furry, enjoy your special day!

Father’s Day can be bittersweet for those of us whose fathers are no longer with us. My dad passed away 13 years ago, but I still get a little sad when friends talk about what they’re going to do to celebrate, or when I see Father’s Day cards pop up in stores.

If you still have your father, tell him that you love him today. If you are a father, enjoy your special day!

  1. I left one hours ago..it’s not here? Very
    Disappointed, it was not offensive
    Don’t know what happened.
    I would appreciate feedback from whomever blocked it. Thanks.

  2. I agree with your sentiment regarding Father’s Day; it is a bittersweet day for those of us who no longer have a father figure in our lives. Today is the day for all sons and daughters who still have a father to reach out and thank them for all they do!

    Hi Inrigrid~ I relate to you totally! Those who still have Dads, boy you are lucky.
    My dad has been gone for many moons.
    And Mom, too. Even though I am up in years, I feel like an orphan without them.
    Call your Dad, don’t text him. Send him something if your minkes away. Be with him
    if you can. They are gone too soon.
    Cards are very hard to look at, even today.
    My favorite memory of Dad driving me to school in a Chicago blizzard.
    We got there, glad got a blanket our of the trunk, and he carried me into the school.
    My friends made fun of that! But then~ they
    were never lucky as I was to have my Dad!!
    How many Dads do that.
    For all of you..go to you tube and search
    Daddy’s Littke Girl…a. Beautiful song my Dad sang to me.
    After he passed, one day I went to the cemetery, stoid at his grave and sand Dady’s. Lille Girl.
    To this day, the words are so moving!
    Hapoy Fathers day, to my Dad, Edward. My
    grandson is named in his blessed memory.
    Love to all today.
