Happy Father's Day!

Daddy, he's trying to pedal as hard as you.

Grandpop, he's trying to do just what you showed him
I love this photo of my son-in-law holding newborn  baby Thomas in his hands.

"Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy! 
 I never knew I could feel this kind of love.
My life is forever changed.
Dear God, Thank you for this child, and help me
raise him and teach him all that is good,
 help me become  the kind of father he needs."
- a new Daddy's prayer

Fathers, grandfathers,
stepfathers and fathers-in-law,
 for your unconditional love, your care and guidance,
we thank you, we love you, and we honor you! 


Yesterday, June 12, was National Peanut Butter Cookie Day,
and that's what I made for my Daddy, they are his favorite! 
 He  lives in Delaware, and he'll get the package
 for Father's Day.
