Happy, Thankful Thoughts


“And he said, “Let me tell you a secret, about a father’s love
A secret that my daddy said was just between us
He said daddies don’t just love their children
Every now and then
It’s a love without end, amen, it’s a love without end, amen”    George Strait, A Father’s Love

I heard this song on the radio the other day.  George Strait, with his country tone and twang, just calls you to sing along, and have thankful thoughts about your dad.

I always have thankful, happy thoughts about my Dad.

He’s one of those guys that lights up a room when he comes in.

He’s one of those hard working guys who makes doing the right thing look easy.

He’s one of those guys that loves his family and will doing anything for them.

He’s one of those guys that can always make you laugh.

He’s one of those guys whose eyes let you know he’s proud of you.


In preparing for the MSOLC, I reread my poetry anthology.  I found this poem inspired by Dad and written for my Dad.

  1. These words brought tears to my eyes! I love the poem and you’ve inspired me to write my own. It’s beautiful and I know I could write my own version. I lost my dad eleven years ago and he is still so close to my heart. Thank you for this beautiful post. It touched my heart!


  2. Such a beautiful image of the love between you and your dad. This makes my heart recall those moments with my dad. Reading to me as a child, practicing Spanish during middle and high school and trusting me with his car. I called him that wise old wizard. Thanks for sharing.
