A Father's Day Tribute

The Dads in my life didn't sit in their recliners on Father's Day. Their favorite way to spend their special day is in a Kansas wheat field, cutting a crop that's taken 9 months to grow.
In a way, it's like raising kids, I suppose.
Good, honest, hardheaded character is a function of the home. If the proper seed is sown there and properly nourished for a few years, it will not be easy for that plant to be uprooted.
Just as in farming, there are plenty of variables in parenting. Fortunately, the weather isn't one of them (unless you're the Father of the Bride worried about the weather ruining your princess' big day).
But, on Father's Day, just like always, I was thankful for the "Daddys" in my life.
Any fool can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a Daddy.
You've heard the saying, "I couldn't have said it better myself." Well, I said it last year in my Father's Day post. Click here for a rerun honoring my Dad, my husband and my father-in-law.
Hope your Father's Day was a good one, too, and that you spent it doing what you love to do.
