Any man can be a Father...

.. but it takes a special person to be called Dad!

Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there who hold a special place in your child's heart, no matter how old they are!

A little history time line about this day...
  • 1909 - On Mother's day, Sonora Smart Dodd (Who was raised by her father alone after the death of her mother) invisioned this day becoming a reality after hearing a sermon.
  • June 19, 1910 - The first father's day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington. Sonora chose the month of June to celebrate fathers because her father's birthday fell in June.
  • 1926 - The National Father's Day Committee was formed in New York city.
  • 1956 - Father's Day was recognized by a Joint Resolution of Congress
  • 1972 - President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third Sunday of June.
Let the father's in your life know how much they mean to you on this day!

To my husband, and the father of our children.. What you do for our family on a daily basis shows your love, and on this day.. relax, take a break and let us honor you for all that you are!
