Following In Father's Footsteps


Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there, who's kindness, fairness and love for their children has changed the world.

One little boy, following in the footsteps of a good and loving Father, will bring happiness to his own family someday   His own Daddy is the one who can teach that boy how to become a good man.

I am grateful for my own Father, who's kindness and love made a HUGE difference in my own life.  I often hear stories of dads who are not good--and who treated their children awful.  To hear those stories breaks my heart.  I wish everyone could have had a Dad like mine.  He would have taken you all to his heart, too.

Happy Father's Day, dear ones.

Best Birthday Greetings



Happy Birthday to me!  Today I bring home a tiny new Friend.  He's nine weeks old, and a bundle of fun.  I get to bring him home today.  SUCH a happy moment.

Have a lovely day, sweet Friends!  And if it is your birthday too--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


Freedom's Flag -Postcard Friendship Friday #460



Today is Flag Day and this coming Sunday is Father's Day.  Dad will always be my hero. 

I love our country's flag.  My Father fought beneath it and for it during WW2.  He spoke of how that flag, those stars and stripes, symbolized his country and family--those things he loved best.  In the midst of blood and battle, when he saw our American Flag he took courage.

Dad is in heaven now--but I still remember the look in his eyes when he spoke of how our flag gave him courage to face the terrible things of war.

Happy Flag Day, Daddy.  I love you.

Goodbye Dear old Friend


Yesterday my dear old friend Vern called to say goodbye.  He said he would greet my Beloved and two babies when he got there and told me he was praying for me.  Those were his last words.  Soon after he called, Vern flew away to heaven--I didn't realize how close he was to flying away from this world.

My Friend was 92 and had lived a long life full of years.  He prayed for me every day...Vern was one of my best buddies and I loved him well.  It has been an honor to know this wonderful man.

He leaves a HUGE hole in the lives of his family and friends--but I know he's in a better place now.  He can run and jump with the best of them--and I know he is rejoicing at reuniting with his son, daughter, sisters, son-in-law, and his beloved  Edie.

Farewell old Friend.  I miss you.

Father's Day Morning Coffee


There are several of these wonderful illustrations for Father's Day from the 1950's and 1960's.  They are ads in various old magazines.

I couldn't resist posting this one. 

Happy Father's Day to all the good Daddies out there!

Daddie -Postcard Friendship Friday #459



Happy Father's Day!  I found this postcard online--I found it to be unusual.  Most postcards from that era are for "Father" or "Dad."  Daddie is endearing.

I'm a Daddy's girl from way back--and this postcard warmed my heart.

Have a great weekend and a joyful Father's  Day to you!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, dear Friends!

Mermaid Dancers


I adore this drawing.  Mermaids are such whimsical beautiful creatures.  I love the way the waters of the ocean are portrayed, too.

Have a lovely day, sweet Friends!  I think it is time for a trip to the seashore!

To Dear Dad -Postcard Friendship Friday #458



The impact of a Father on the life of his children is long-lasting.  What a Father does makes a difference for all time, as his influence ripples down through generations.

I was blessed with a Dad who loved each of us with all his heart.  I miss him.  I remember how proud he was of me and my family.  He was proud of all of us.

Happy Father's Day and  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Climbing Bubble Stairs


I'm not sure what the child is holding--maybe he's going to use it to pop all those bubbles?  I love the idea of bubbles growing upon the ground--bubble trees and bubble-scapes.

I suppose I will ever be the whimsical child.

Love to Father -Postcard Friendship Friday #457



Father's Day is in June.  I was blessed to have a wonderful Daddy who loved me and my siblings with all his heart.  He flew away to heaven almost seven years ago.  I still miss Dad.

Dad taught us about unconditional love--it didn't matter what awful thing we might have done--his love was always there.  Because of Daddy, I understand the heart of God the Father.  He is tender and loving--but firm and strong, just like my own precious Father.

"As a father is kind to his children, so the LORD is kind to those who honor him."  ~Psalm 103:13  I am grateful to the Lord for dear Dad--who by his example taught us who God is.  

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday, dear Friends--and Happy Father's Day!
