Happy Father’s Day

Fathers Day WhatsApp Status Messages, Sms, Msg, Wishes Greetings Images_thumb[3] Today, whether you are a son or daughter, we celebrate the first man in our lives.

Unfortunately, I lost my father when I was five year’s old; and, although I have few memories of my childhood, some of the most vivid are of my daddy.

What I remember most is his smile and the laughter that often rang throughout our home. He was an engaged and loving father.

Me helping daddy was the car!

My daddy died at the young age of 32. The loss of him left a void I have felt my entire life.

He was taken from us, far too young, but in the short time God gave us together, I had a glimpse of what life might have been. My daddy made me feel loved and safe; for that I am grateful.

If you’re blessed to have your father still in your life – celebrate the day with him. If, like me, you have only memories – honor him.

Mother’s maybe the glue that holds a family together, but father’s are the foundation on which strong families stand firm. Click to Tweet

To all Dads – Happy Father’s Day!

Fun Facts about Father’s Day: First celebrated on June 19, 1910, but did not become a national holiday until 1972 – 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day a national holiday.

  1. Five years old is too young to lose a dad. This is the second one with out mine and I don’t believe there will be a day I don’t smile at something he would have said. There is never a good or right time to lose someone you love. But as sure as the sea is wet we one day will go and leave some people behind remembering us. I hope I will be remembered as nicely as you remember and pay tribute to your Dad here .
