To the WORLD you are a dad. To our FAMILY, you are the world.
One of the great lessons I remember my dad constantly
emphasizing in our family while I was growing up was "Use your R&I." That is,
use your resourcefulness and initiative. He taught us that we were not
victims of the circumstances surrounding us, but rather masters of our own destiny.
Stephen M. R. Covey
"Any man can be a Father it takes someone special to be a Dad."
Daddy, a son's first hero and daughter's first love.
In a nutshell, then, we are right to strive toward becoming a famous dad,
a hero in our home, precisely because in our fathering we have the awesome
opportunity to reflect God, the ultimate Father.
Matt Click, Famous Dad
A dad is someone you should look up to no matter how tall you grow.
Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever.
"A dad is someone who wants to catch you before you fall but instead
picks you up, brushes you off, and lets you try again."
Words of Encouragement
"I would rather be the daddy of a romping, roguish crew,
of a bright-eyed chubby laddie and a little girl or two, than the monarch
of a nation, in his high and lofty seat, taking empty adoration from
the subjects at his feet."
Edgar A Guest, Daddies

Dad Quotes From Son
"When I was a kid, I used to imagine animals running under my bed.
I told my dad, and he solved the problem quickly. He cut the legs off the bed."

He insisted on greatness in every facet of the daily grind.
Nowhere was this clearer than in his role as our father.
Mark Shriver, A Good Man
My dad was my best friend and greatest role model.
He was an amazing dad, coach, mentor, soldier, husband and friend.
He was there when I didn't understand, he was there when I was wrong,
he was there when I cried, he was there when I lied. For some reason
my dad was always there, when I needed him the most.
His love was never ending. And now that he's gone, there is an emptiness in my world but not in my heart."
"I like to think my dad was easygoing and kind, and I think some
of those things have been passed down. I am like him in a sense
of being positive and hopeful. He was compassionate, and I've got a lot of that in me as well."
My father was my teacher. But most importantly he was a great dad.
Dad, you are needed today and every day. Thank you for doing
your part in saving our youth and making our society better."

emotional and physical upheaval for her, and to do your part to
make the pregnancy as successful as possible.
