Fathers Are Wonderful People.

Fathers Are Wonderful People-By Kellie Kennedy-One Baby Boomers View on Life.

This is a tribute to my dear father. Father’s Day is June 17th. Unfortunately,  I will be gone this year on Father’s Day. Time for a well deserved “all girls” boating trip to Lake Mojave. 

This past Christmas we celebrated the festive holiday with close friends and just a few family members who live near us. This past holiday was a double celebration; Christmas and my father’s health. On Christmas Eve I toasted my father and recited the poem “Life Lessons.” I came upon this poem recently, and I thought it was perfect for the evening. The poem described just the way I feel about my father.

I decided to share the poem with all of you. I inserted one of my most favorite photos taken of my father this past year. I love walking in their home and seeing him sitting in his office doing business.

Here’s to you dear father, Happy Father’s Day.

Fathers are wonderful people, who over the years make our Christmas more cherished and enjoyable. The festive occasion hence is a brilliant opportunity to thank our fathers. It is with their hard work and love for us that we are able to celebrate Christmas since childhood in a special way. The protection and love they provide us, in fact is perhaps the reason as to why we truly adore the Christmas spirit. They are the ones, who introduce us to the Christmas celebration and become each child’s Santa Claus. So, here is a certain poem to thank our very own Santa Claus (My Father)  on this festive occasion.

Life Lessons
You may have thought I didn’t see, 
Or that I hadn’t heard, 
Life lessons that you taught to me, 
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all, 
And that we’d grow apart, 
But Dad, I picked up everything, 
It’s written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be
The (woman) I am today; 
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I’ve grown up with your values, 
And I’m very glad I did; 
So here’s to you, dear father, 
From your forever grateful kid.

Love you Kellie
