Father's Day!

Hey all! I hope you are doing well this Father's Day! It's funny, there's only one day each set aside to celebrate moms/dads, but they are there for us whenever we need them. So, SO thankful for the wonderful parents God gave me! And for my dad. Father's day took on a new meaning when he was diagnosed with cancer a few years back. I'm so thankful that he's still here so we can celebrate today with him. God has been so good to us!
This is my favorite, FAVORITE quote about Dads! :) 
Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to wish all the dads out there a Happy Fathers Day!!!! You are loved more then you'll ever know. :)
And, to wrap up the post, here's a short poem I wrote last year. (I think!) For father's day.


A daddy is a person, that no one can replace
and if I ever need him, he'll come to me with haste
He is my friend, my loving guide,
And whenever I may need him, he’s right there by my side.
He helps me in the kitchen, I help him work out doors
he helps me with my problems, he’s the person I adore.

My daddy is not perfect, but he tries his very best
to teach us what is good and right, and we are all so blest.
He loves us and protects us, with his tender care
He works hard to provide for us, he’s always just and fair.
If ever there’s a problem I just can’t solve alone,
I run to my daddy, and the love he’s always shown.

Yes, I love my daddy that God has given me on earth,
He loves me and cares for me, and no one else compares.
Yet I have another Daddy, who loves me even more,
And when I have a problem, His loving words are sure.
I’m thankful for Jesus and what he did for me, 
He gave his life so that salvation I would see.
