Great-granddaughter celebrates the 'Mother' of Father's Day

He set high standards and made sure we all grew up with a good sense of humor. Save the future. Happy Father's Day! In the past I have written about how on my desk I have two decorated rocks - one from each son - given to me for Father's Day back in their early school years.

As we celebrate Father's Day on Saturday, a day that is not accorded as much significance as Mother's Day, let us not forget these unsung heroes, the women who are playing the role of both father and mother.

Sunday is the 107th Father's Day celebrated in the US since Dodd created the holiday in 1910.

It is nearly comical that this holiday now causes me so much grief because my father hated Hallmark holidays.

It will be another day where I think about my dad, but I will also go to that dumpling house and order his favorite dishes. Fortunately they left the Lord's prayer alone, despite it being the same Greek word, Pater: Our Father. When he looks at me and smiles and breathes, I hear the notes. After a protracted struggle of over four decades, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father's Day in 1966.

Researchers found that children were much more likely to choose fast-food restaurants if their fathers grabbed takeout on a regular basis.

Mothers possess unconditional love and warmth and dads are invincible heroes.

Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance. "I may not live in a mansion or have a 401 (k)".

And I am not just talking about single mothers here. If your dad is a movie buff - just like mine - he will surely love this idea. When his mom remarried, his step-father became the only dad he'd have-an honest, hard-working man. Unless, of course, he's one of the 14 percent of dads Zagat surveyed who just want to be left completely alone on Father's Day. It is time for me to give, to share, and to spend the kind of memorable times my dad spent with me and my family. It is rather like another chance at life; like a new bag of coins at a table of luck after your fortune is gone.

We moved some when I was a kid. You are lucky to have a dad that is so invested in what you are doing. Your sons and daughters need you. Be aware that health can be a sensitive issue for many people, one that often brings up fears about loss of privacy and autonomy.

Dads hold a special place in our hearts as well as in our family.

"We haven't been online for very long, most of our customers come into the store because they want the extra service, they want to come in especially if they're buying clubs".

Thanks for acting like a kid when I was a kid, acting like a friend when I needed a friend, and acting like a parent when I needed one.

There are so many things I wish I could have done with my father when I was growing up.

Home improvement or gardening supplies (16.2%) - Home improvement gifts are especially popular during a weaker economy, with consumers planning to spend $885 million on supplies in 2017; they are more or less an investment in upkeep of your home. "He loves to run, so we'll get him something that has to do with that". Mostly, I hope someone out there this Sunday makes you feel the same emotion I feel when I revisit the photo albums and every letter my dad wrote me. Enjoy your day together. "We love you daddy".

Good husbands and fathers need to be good leaders.
