Happy Father’s Day…

to all Dads, especially those with young sons.

I never had a son.

I have one daughter; my princess…still. She always makes Father’s Day special for me. This year she gave me the best Father’s Day gift ever. Six weeks ago she and her husband gave me my first grandchild…a boy. Oh, how I intend to spoil him…with love, of course.

But, I have always wondered what kind of a Father I would have been to a boy child. I guess I’ll never know. Or will I?

For my son-in-law, and all Dads of our world with little ones, here’s a little poem of wisdom that might help you shape your fatherhood. The author is unknown (it is actually attributed to numerous individuals and I was unable to ascertain who the correct writer is).

Enjoy!

Little Eyes Upon You

There are little eyes upon you
and they’re watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say. 

There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
And a little boy who’s dreaming
of the day he’ll be like you.

You’re the little fellow’s idol,
you’re the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise. 

You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
For the little boy who’s waiting
to grow up to be just like you.

  1. Congratulations to you and your family & Happy Father’s Day!! It’s great you get to experience now what it’s like to have a little boy! You can teach him and do all the things you would if you had a son. Your daughter is blessed to have a loving, caring, involved dad like you. Not every daughter gets to experience that. I hope you have an amazing father’s day! 😀
