I've seen lots of mention here about how you'd work your fingers to the bone because you have a family you're dedicated to. Hope today you're reaping an extra helping of appreciation for your effort and commitment!

I was awoken this morning by my 4-year old daughter jumping on my bed and telling me happy father's day and how much she loves me.

Things like that make it all worth while, ya know?

One of my daughters (3 years) could not wait and gave me the card she colored for me yesterday, my 5 year old girl gave me her card this morning.

They are the most beautiful cards in the world, at least to me.

(2) popsicle stick boxes, from 2 of them and one popsicle stick frame with one of the kids pictures in it from the third. So how many red wire nuts can be placed in a popsicle stick box that is 1" tall?

I wish I had some stories to tell but I'm not a father myself

Happy Father's Day to all that are.

Not a father myself either, although I would sure like to be.

But I can think back to all the things my late father (and indeed my late mother) did for me and realize what the cards or home-made gifts I made for them must have meant.
