A Special Father’s Day Card

My hubby has many, many Father’s Day cards . . .

~ ~ from our son and now from our granddaughter.

But there is one very special card that he received many years ago. . .

~ ~ that warranted framing. . . and it still brings a smile and a tear to my hubby’s eyes.

Father's Day Card

Our son added a poem to the card . .

~ ~ it read:

“Everyone comes to share you . .

and you help them. . .

and you help me. . .

and you teach them. . .

and you teach me. . .

and you listen to them. . .

and you listen to me. . .

and you laugh with them. . .

and you laugh with me.

Everyone loves and respects you. .

but I love and respect you the most. . .

because I am a part of you and you are a part of me.

Everyone calls you Coach . . .

but I can call you Dad.

~ ~ I must say my hubby needed “a moment” after reading the card.

And talk about “needing a moment” . . he needed one after our sweetie wrote him this note . .

~ ~ just because!

My hubby looks at this every day as it is posted on his bulletin board in his office.

This photo was taken on Father’s Day several years ago . .

~ ~ of my hubby, son and granddaughter. I love this photo of them!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend spending it with a special person in your life . . .

~ ~ whether it be your father, hubby, or child who enhanced your life by being a great dad.

    Happy Father’s Day to one of the best fathers and grandfathers I know…Tom.

  7. I can see how he would need a moment, Shirley! Words from the heart certainly mean more than what any card could say.

  8. Very sweet! Our children are blessed to have father’s and grandfathers who shared their time with so many other children. So many have no role models at all. Happy FD to your dh. I am sure my son’s 5 kids will shower him with love! :)

  11. Oh, Shirley- That made ME cry! Your husband has certainly done something right to instill such respect and love in your son. How very precious to have those sentiments spelled out for him. Your little granddaughter is a doll. I bet she still has gramps wrapped right around her little finger. xo Diana

  12. That is such a sweet poem that your son wrote. I love how you framed it too! What a wonderful keepsake. Your husband is obviously a very good father and it’s nice that he spreads his talents around by being a good coach too. Coaches are often father figures, aren’t they?

    Great poem that your son wrote…I can see why he needed a moment! ;)

  14. Oh, Shirley, I needed a moment after reading that poem! And your little granddaughter’s note is just as precious. Children’s words are so true and full of emotion, which is what makes them so wonderful! Have a wonderful weekend celebrating with that beautiful family.

  16. Wow, what a poem, it’s so special from a child! Yes, I would have framed it too and keep it forever! Your Little adorable granddaughter is a Smart and intelligent one, besides the fact that she adores her grandpa! Our two g’girls adore my hubby too, little girls have a special love for their granddads and I can see it in yours!
    Have a Happy Dad’s Day tomorrow.

  17. What a great pic of three generations! Every parent would be so proud to receive such a thought-filled, loving card from their child. TJ is so special, and so is Tommy. And that little sugarbug, Graylyn, she’s such a tender spirit. Please tell them I wish them a Happy Father’s Day!

  18. Beautiful and loving post. Love the card and poem your son gave his dad. Just so touching. Graylyn looks so cute in every picture. Cherish the day with them tomorrow.
