Honor thy father and thy mother:
that thy days may be long upon the
which the Lord thy God
Father's Day Daddy,
We wanted to let you know,
Just how much we love you,
You set our hearts aglow.
You are the best of the best,
Top of the list you are,
On the stage of Fatherhood,
You are the brightest star.
Your days begin extra early,
And bedtime is always late,
To be a single parent is hard,
Yet our needs don't have to wait.
You play outside with us, Yes!
Give us rides around the yard,
You rake and mow the grass,
Daddy you work so very hard.
You tell us about our Jesus,
And teach us right from wrong,
Kneel with each during prayer,
Place us in God's care, where we belong.
You are a wonderful Daddy,
Doing the job of a Mom and Dad,
You clean, cook and do laundry too,
And still have patience when we're bad.
God blessed you with three children,
Each has a special need,
You care for us with love,
And with God's help you succeed.
Brother and Sister are autistic,
And that makes each God's special child,
Sometimes people say hurtful things,
Yet you explain with kindness and a smile.
Diabetes is another obstacle,
That brought more challenges to face,
Insulin, carb counting and packing lunches,
Yet this too you quickly embraced.
Daddy, you don't give up when life's hard,
But keep striving and pushing on,
You make a way to care for our needs,
And you give us a very happy home.
We love you with all of our hearts, Yes!
You mean the entire world to us too,
We really love and thank you Daddy,
And pray God's blessings forever shower you!
Maggie, Evan and Ryan
