My Father, My Hero, My Friend

My Father is a Master Story Teller
and us kids would pile onto the bed hoping to hear his latest tale
and squeal with laughter over his hilarious sense of humor.
His version of the 3 little pigs is the best!

He used to write us all letters when we went away to college,
hilarious stories like how he was dying of
a nose disease from buying the el-cheapo brand of Kleenex's
against my Mother's advice, and many others.
He always signed them with a funny face
and the words,
Be Good.

My Dad is the most humble man I know.
I used to think that all dad's were great
and I think a lot are.
But the older I get, the more I know
that my Dad is the Exception!

He made our home a place of safety, of peace.
He has always loved us unconditionally.
He has always made us laugh.

He still is my Knight in Shining Armor, my own personal Superman,
 still rescuing me
even though I'm at midlife with a child of my own.
He has set a pretty high standard and example
for men in my life
and for my Husband
and I am so grateful for that.
Thanks Dad for not only being my Father,
but for being my Hero and my Friend.

Happy Father's Day!
We hope all of you are enjoying your wonderful Husband's and Father's today!
