Happy Fathers Day

Tomorrow is Fathers Day.  What a great day to celebrate the important men in our lives.

My Daddy was one of the most important men in my life.  Daddy died from Lymphoma in June 1994 ~ sometimes it seems like yesterday but most of the time, it seems like a lifetime ago.  My boys adored Daddy.  My nephews adored Daddy.  My Mom, my sister and I adored Daddy.  He gave us everything ~ spoiled us rotten (even as adults), and loved us unconditionally.  He will always be missed!

Another VIP man in my life is my dear husband, Greg.  He is a great husband and awesome Father.  He's got lots of practice in the Daddy department because we've been blessed with 7 children.  All wonderful and all a challenge.  In my 9 years as a widow (I hate that word),  I prayed for the Lord to send me a husband and my children a Daddy.  He answered my prayers in a BIG way.  Never could I have imagined how perfect he would be for us!  And, he spoils us rotten! 

One of the best things about these 2 men ~ they knew each other!  We all fished together, water skiied together, went to the lake together, vacationed together.  We share family stories and history from 48 years ago! 

I wish Daddy were here now to visit us, swim, love on his grandchildren (all 12 of them), share in our joys and sympathize in our tragedies, anticipate the future, and worship our Lord!

Happy Fathers Day!


Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
