Father's Day Giveaway!

My dad was a special man. No one loved and nurtured me quite like he did. He was always there for me through thick and thin. Not one time in my life can I ever remember him failing in his role as a loving father.

Was your dad special too? I'm sure he was. Leave a comment here; share a treasured memory, a funny story, a prank your dad pulled on you (or vice versa), or a heartfelt reflection that brings a tear to your eye. I can't wait to read your posts! On Monday morning, I'll choose one lucky winner who will receive one of my books. So...

Leave a comment for a chance to win!

It is always nice to hear touching Father stories. I didn't have that man in my life....my Dad was not a good man. I can say as I watch my husband nuture our kids; it makes me love him so much more.

Anon, I'm sending you hugs. I think it's wonderful that your children have a nurturing father!

I have so many happy memories of my father who passed on 11 years ago. I think the thing that stands out the most about my father, though, is the way he cared for my mother who lost her sight when I was about 5 years old. She was far from helpless, carrying out most household tasks (except for those involving fire) but he always treated her with love and respect (never pity!) and a hearty dose of his trademark wry humour. When my younger brother lovingly nursed his wife until her death from cancer a few years ago, we all concluded that he was only following the example of being a caring husband and father that our Daddy modeled for us.

I am happy to say I still have my Dad and I love every single moment I get to spend with him!!! He is my rock and my biggest supporter in anything I do!!! There are 5 of us kids, and I can say he somehow manages to make all 5 of us feel like we are the light of his life! My Dad is the greatest!!!!

I still live with my parents at 30, because of health issues. I do all of their cooking to help them out where I can. I am moving across the country next month, so I will no longer cooking for them. For fathers' day I am making my dad his own cookbook with recipes that I make that are his favorite.

My father passed away november 2008. I was in my senior year of highschool. I warched it happen and i couldnt even succeed in doing cpr. I remember from when i ws a child he always made me my sister and i do more chores than most kids. He always told me that i would thank him one day...i do now. If it were legal i could have lived on my own at the age of 6. He was always protective of us, though phisically and mentally abbusive. We always had fun. I liked sundays because when he watched football...i would curl up behind his knees and watch it with him. My fiance now raises our one year old son and knowing how bad it can be...we know what to do. I love seeing them smile together though he is only 1.

My dad used to have this invisable ball trick he did with a paper bag...to this day i still dont know how he did it. He also had the best daffy duck voice...
My parents were seperated and when i was 2 i would cry because i missed my mom. He would walk back in the room talking in a girly voice pretending to be her...he was great!
