Father's Day Approaches

"It is admirable for a man to take his son fishing, but there is a special place in heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping." --John Sinor

My dad took me shopping one time when I was in high school. The poor man you know he felt like a fish out of water. Every store we went into he got increasingly uncomfortable. LOL Salesladies would scurry over with a chair and cup of coffee.

Bless his heart, I just sent him a gift certificate to his favorite home supply store. He can build my mom another project for their home.

My Dad insisted that he go shopping for my senior prom dress with my mother and I. Of course, after two stores he was ready to call it a day. But I remember the look on his face when I tried on the dress I eventually wore to the prom-I can only imagine that's what he'll look like when he walks me down the aisle at my wedding.

Now, I have him much better trained Then again, I spend a lot less time shopping than I used to.

I remember when I was about 8 or 9, my dad took me to Shea Stadium to see a Mets game. Other than that, he knew the quickest way to get a smile out of me was to take me to the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. Every Valentine's Day, I could aways count on a little heart-shaped box of chocolates.

He'll be gone 3 years this coming September, and his birthday always falls around Father's Day. I miss him.

I guess that my dad is a rarity - he likes to shop. He has a closet full of nice clothes and almost as many pairs of shoes, as I do.

He has a good eye for women's clothes and buys my mom a lot of stuff, without consulting her. It is always something that looks good on her and that she likes.

Actually my dad is a shop-aholic. I like shopping but he can start when the stores open and not come home till they close - Pheweeee

For fathers day he gets a certificate to this new restaurant in town as well as the tried and true pair of suspenders (his are on their last leg)

my dad gave me my love and respect for animals. he's a big ol' softie when it comes dogs and cats.

I took his pictures from a visit to see me and made him a scrapbook. At least the pics aren't sitting around in a box any longer!

When I was a teenager and even now still when I'm home visiting my dad would ask me every morning before he went to work if his tie matched his suit. He never asked my mom, just me. I know it's a little thing but it is something that I kind of treasure. He still does it and he doesn't know it means so much to me. Both my parents passed down thier love of animals to me. I'm so lucky for that! The first time I ever saw my dad cry was when our cat Amber died, and I was only about six! I can't wait to pass down my love for animals down to my children, if in fact I am going to have actual human children or just stick to cats and dogs....

My Dad is the best and most patient man in the world. He would take us the mall, find a nice seat and wait. Never would he give us a dirty look. It was always "take your time".

We almost lost our Dad is a car accident the day before Thanksgiving. I'm just so grateful that he is still with us. I'm not sure what I'll give him, because he never wants anything. We will definately take him out to eat.

My Dad just loves being a Dad. He always tells us how much he loves us and when we were small my Mom had a day in the week all to herself. My Dad would take us visiting, have a picnic or visit the zoo. We really bonded to our Dad during those times. He didn't get a son (just two daughters), but I don't think he minded. He had eight sisters, so he knows how to handle women.lol

My dad's shoulder was the one I cried on when my boyfriends broke up with me. He was the one who encouraged me to stand up to my mother and who asked Darrell to take me away and make me happy. My mom was an alcoholic and addicted to prescription pills. She's off all that now, thank goodness, but I wouldn't have been able to deal with any of it if it weren't for my dad.

He also never wants anything for Father's day. Only time spent with his children.

My dad is so great. He is loud, and scary, but just a big teddy bear under it all.

He has always been there for me, never has let me down in my life. He has seen me down at my lowest, and flying at my highest. And I love him for it.

In this world of dead-beat dads, isn't great to hear about dads who stand by and encourage their children. I also think it's a special kind of man who knows how to raise and be a good dad to their daughters.

I read somewhere, that the greatest gift that a man can give to his children is to love their mother. Unfortunately, my children never got that gift but, I did!

We used to tease my dad that he wasn't the head of the house. He told us that he was the head of our household, but my mother was the neck and she could move him any way she wanted.
