Quotable Sunday – “DAD”
Happy Father’s Day!
A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.
It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.
A father carries pictures where his money used to be.
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
~Mark Twain, “Old Times on the Mississippi” Atlantic Monthly, 1874
Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes.
*This one especially speaks to me today as my dad is no longer with me but with God, my heavenly Father.
Never raise your hand to your kids. It leaves your groin unprotected.
