Happy Father’s Day!

I’ve tried all day to think up the right words, and it comes simply to this:

I totally lucked out. I’ve got a great Dad. (And Mom, too!)

I totally lucked out. My kids have a great Dad.  And I a great husband.

If the whole world had that, think how much more peace there would be on earth.

You are very fortunate indeed! You deserve it!

The world would be a better place, to be sure. But you know what? I’m rather certain your kids will be great parents too…

There would be less people with stress related illnesses (i.e. my mother with a strong case of psoriasis) and more peace, for sure!

I think Channon hit it right on the nose.

Fun —

A teacher was trying to get across to her first graders the notion of the meaning of the word ‘sufficient’. But she was not having any success. Finally, she said, “I have a kitten at home. When it is time to feed her, I pour some milk into a saucer, put it on the floor, and the kitten laps it up. Then I pour more milk into the saucer, and she laps all of that up. So I fill the saucer again, but the kitten drinks only a bit of the milk. She has had sufficient milk. Now, does that give you an idea of the meaning of the word ‘sufficient’?” One little girl waved her hand wildly in the air. “Yes, Susie, what is the meaning of the word ‘sufficient’?” Answered the little girl, “A cat full of milk!”

(Amalie and I got such a kick out of that story, that if I asked her if she wanted more of something, she might answer “Cat full of milk!”)

And perhaps the best part is that you know it! Happiness is so often in the mind of the beholder, in appreciating what life has given you rather than choosing to dwell on what it has not.
And Don, thank you so much! When I was a kid my parents got a kitten for my sister, thinking it would encourage her to drink milk. Kitten wouldn’t go near it. (This was back during WWII when butter was rationed so we made it from cream.) Sister still doesn’t like it. Thanks for the memory!
We adopted a new (used LOL) kitty last week. She’s about 5, and although a “stray” at the shelter, clearly is used to being around people. She would drink milk right out of my glass or bowl if I would let her! 🙂

I am so grateful for the father that my children have. And for his father – who treats me like a daughter, too. I wish everyone could have the experience of unselfish love these two men (and yours) so clearly demonstrate.

A little late, but Amen!, nonetheless!
