The sweet image you see above is from Herman Turnip, author of Terrible Analogies.

This is a photograph of he and his son Tyler, hanging out together; watching TV.

When I saw this photo posted on Hermans’ blog, I felt like it totally epitomized the essence of a fathers’ love. So, I asked him if I could share it on my Father’s Day post, and he graciously consented.

Thank you, Herman!

For me, there is nothing more touching than seeing a father with child. It is a beautiful combination of strength and gentleness.

Whenever I think of a fathers’ love, I see a male lion with both his strong protective instinct, and his ability to also be tender and caring.

Here is a poem I found on the Internet, that truly defines what makes a dad.

What Makes A Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it … Dad

I know it’s a bit early, but I would like to take this time to wish all you wonderful men out there, a Happy Father’s Day.

Please know that you are loved and appreciated, and that you make a powerful imprint on the hearts and lives of your children.

I would like to close this post by sharing a TV commercial I found on You Tube, that made me laugh my ass off. Notice the subtle expressions on the father and sons’ face – they’re priceless.

*please turn your speaker volume up.


Note: Since I will be working additional hours this week, I’ve decided to take the week off from blogging. I look forward to seeing everyone next Monday. Have a great week, peeps….X
