Dad’s day

Forver in my heart.jpgIt’s been 14 years since I’ve had my dad here on earth to celebrate a Father’s Day and I’m still unable to find words. I haven’t been to church on Father’s day for years as I just sit there and sob.

You have been given this day

This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good.
