Happy Father's Day

I once read a sign that said "Anybody can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a Dad". I know for a fact how true this is. My Dad came in to our lives when I was just a tiny little girl. I knew from the beginning he was my Dad. I'm sure it was embarrassing for my mom that I called him Dad when they were just dating but I was obviously a little girl who needed a Dad. I have never referred to him as my stepdad, I have never even thought of him as anything other than my Dad. He has always been in my life. He baptised me, he brought me jell-o and sprite when I was sick, he was there when I got married and he's the best Grandpa my kids could ask for. He is absolutely someone special - he's my Dad!

Lovely.

I felt the same way about my 'dad', who was technically my stepdad.

Your father sounds like a very special man.

We had that saying on a plaque for my dad. I'm so glad your dad came into your life!
