I am stunned by the lack of a thread for all the fathers on this site. Why is it that women are always recognized on Mother's Day, and Valentines Day, and most all special occasions, but here it is Father's Day, and not a single thread for wishes to the Dads here.

This is my tribute to all the fathers on this special day.

Being a dad, a parent, and a friend
is a special blessing in life,
one that demands a lot,
whether single or with a wife.

Happy Father's Day to you all!

Thank you Autumn for that wonderful piece, much appreciated. I have my youngest still at home, and my oldest girl and grandaughter are coming in tomorrow to spend the day. But there are so many fathers being forgotten about.

I put this thread up for them, so they can know that they are not alone, at least in thoughts, on this special day.

Father’s Day Prayer
Lord, please bless our fathers,
these men who mean so much to us,
who are greatly responsible
for who we are and who we are becoming.
Bless them for having the courage
to do what’s necessary to keep us out of trouble,
for making us do the right thing,
for helping us build our character,
even when it makes us angry;
and bless them for pushing us to do our best,
even when they just want to love us.
Bless our fathers for being our protectors,
for leading us through stormy times to safety,
for making us believe that everything will be all right
and for making it so.
Bless our fathers for quietly making a living
to provide for those they love most,
for giving us food, clothing, shelter
and the other material things that really matter,
for unselfishly investing time and money in us
that they could have spent on themselves.
Bless our fathers, Lord,
for saving some energy for fun,
for leading us on adventures
to explore the outer reaches of ourselves,
for making us laugh,
for being our playmates and our friends.
Bless them for being our secure foundation, our rock,
for holding on tight to us...until it’s time to let us go.
Lord, bless these men we look up to,
our role models, our heroes,
our fathers.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

The older I get the more I learn
The kind of man you are
The kind of father you’ve been
Not just ‘Dad’
But a human being
Struggling in this life
With your own battles
As we all do
As you make this last transition
My love goes with you
My respect
My understanding
Of who you are,
Where you’ve been
The job you did
Raising my sisters and me

I want you to know, Dad
We turned out okay
You did just fine
