Father's Day

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

~~Author Unknown.~~

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, I hope that you are enjoying your day.

Duke plans on spending the day with his human dad today.
And he hopes you all get to spend time with yours too.

Ann - great poem!

Also, scoot over to my blog on Monday to re-enter. I ended up deleting the giveaway post and announcing the giveaway in the bead soup blog party revealing tomorrow! Sorry, chica!

What Sugar said. He's another favorite dog of mine. Don't tell Duke.

Hope all the dads had a great Fathers Day. My best to Duke. :)

Thank you, that's a great poem. Although, I think He missed a few on me..like the patience part, for one. Now, MY dad has the patience of a saint. I only wish I could have been more like him.

Duke looks like he's enjoying his day with his dad! I just love Duke's happy face!

That is super Duke that you are spending time with your Dad. I bet he likes that a lot .
Have a great week.

Ann said...

Sugar, glad you liked it

Alterity Button jewelry no problem, I don't mind stopping by again.

Sandee my lips are sealed, Duke will never know especially since I like Sugar too

Tahtimbo you aren't the only one short on patience. I have the same problem

Beaded Tail Duke had a wonderful time, especially when they went swimming

covnitkepr1 so glad you stopped by and thanks for the follow. I'll be by later to check out your blog

Junezach I guess great minds just think alike :)

allotments4you wow your husband was one lucky guy, double celebration

vanilla seven thank you

Fishhawk why thank you, I hope you enjoyed your day

out on the prairie can't wait to see

Tanyia I liked the poem the moment I saw it. They had a great time

Lin my dad isn't with us any longer so it's been years since I've gotten to spend a father's day with him.

Bossy betty thanks to both from me and Duke :)

Donna I think he's a permanent resident there. I wish I was that way more often but I'm working on it :)

Leeuna aw I think you made Duke blush...lol

Marg I think Duke had ulterior motives, he wanted to swim
