To all Dad's, Papa's, Father's or whatever you call them.. Happy Father's day, to all of you loving husbands and fathers!;) Today, my father and I had a short but touchy conversation. I thanked him for being a good and responsible father to us, who stood up for everything for his family. Who was also a friend to his children, setting up as a good example of providing beeter life for his loved ones and a VERY dedicated husband to his wife and children. I am glad to have him as my father, though we also had rough times together, he always had a wide view about things that needs to be tended upon. Who never thought of having an extended family (you know what I mean!;P), and has set up a standard for us to be like him if ever we get to have our own families. To you father, we thank you for bringing us to this world and sharing us some of your experiences. On behalf of my siblings, we are proud of you.. Share some stories about your father, take this opportunity to thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their efforts.. Thanks and good day to all!;D

Thank you, but to clear things up, am not yet a father!;) I really feel your longing to your father, because I also know other stories just like your's. But I am glad that you do understand him, a good sign that you are also a oving daughter to him!;) Nice to see you again, thanks and take care, always!;)

I have always been a daddy's girl. He always gave me everything that I need and even wanted. And even though I have disappointed him several times or even more in the past...He never gave up on me. I love my daddy so much and I'm very thankful I have him as my daddy. Thank you dad. He owns a very soft spot in my heart.

I guess so, and this also depends on when that certain country celebrates it. But I knew that US and here in the Philippines, my country, both celebrate it on the same date.
