"But if we could look into their hearts, then we could really see.

They are loving sentimental and as soft as they could be.

They strive to do their very best to make their family proud of them and bring them 

And like our heavenly father they are a guardian and a guide.

Someone you can count on and always want to be by your side.

He's also a Dad that holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules. and 
shines with pride when you suceed.

Continues to have faith in you when you think you have failed.

He even wants to catch you before you fall, "But instead he picks you up.

Brushes you off and let's you try again, and they are so wonderful they can even be your 

"So if you are a father "remember" you are truly blessed because it was God who created 
you and he don't make no mess! 

Happy Father's Day

    This is a genuinely moving tribute to fathers, Cathy, filled with so much truth from a very mature perspective. We should cherish our fathers as long as we are lucky enough to have them in our lives. They are all the things you describe. Love, Carolyn
