Happy { Father's Day } Weekend

I have the best Dad in the world, and I can't wait to honor him this Father's Day! He's always been the most amazing example of a man, and has been my biggest supporter and fan in all areas of my life. Our relationship hasn't always been easy...there were those pesky teenage years. (sorry Dad) But, through it all, we have a really developed a wonderful father/daughter bond. Here's a poem that I found, that describes exactly how I feel about my Dad:

A little girl needs her daddy
To love her with manly charm,
To soothe her when she’s hurt,
And keep her safe from harm.
A girl needs her dad
To show her a man who’s good,
To help her make right choices,
As only a father could.
A woman needs her father
Just to be aware,
He’ll always be there for her
To sustain her and to care.
You’ve been all these things, Dad.
I hope that you can see
How much I treasure you;
You mean everything to me.
By Joanna Fuchs
I hope you all have a fabulous Father's Day weekend!


  1. I love the poem :) My dad and I are a lot alike so we, umm, butted heads some when I was growing up - guess this is how you know you're an adult, when you can look back on all that and know you're past it now!

    Have a great weekend Bren!

  2. This is such a lovely poem. And what a fantastic tribute to your dad -- so sweet!
