To offer his willing assistance any hour of the day or the night,
It’s a dad kind of thing to stand by you if one of your bubbles should burst,
To make sure you know you’re important and know that with him you come first,
To give you his all but still wonder if there’s something more he could do,
It’s a dad kind of thing to keep showing that he’ll always be there for you.
My first love … the man who gave me piggyback rides at bedtime as a little girl, taught me how to change a flat tire at 16 and walked me down the aisle … my Dad would have turned 90 today. He was a good, honest and kind man and his wallet reflected what he valued most in his life – his family. It was stuffed with photographs of his grandsons, elementary and high school photos of my brothers and me and my parents' wedding photo. I see those same family values carried on in my brothers and my nephews who now are young fathers. Although not here to blow out birthday candles, Dad will be remembered today by those who love him and miss him. Still a celebratory day, Dad’s niece, my cousin share the same birthday.
These cookies were to be poinsettia cookies but I didn’t have the time to decorate them before Christmas. So, this abstract design came to mind.
