So today is Fathers Day and the Teddy decided to make a special post. As we all know on Fathers Day we cewebwate our daddys. And the Teddy was able to spend the day wif her daddy today. And daddy weminded me of something.
Unfortunatewy not evwyone has thare daddy to spend Fathers Day wif. But that doesnt mean we cant cewebwate them. We can do that simpwy by wemembewing them. So the Teddy would yike to wemember two daddys in particuwar.
This is my mommys daddy.
He went to Heaven a few years ago. And so the Teddy never got to meet him. But mommy and daddy have told me a wot about him. Mommys daddy was a vetewan of the Vietnam War. He would always tell evwyone the cwaziest stowies about when he was in the war and jus his cwazy life in genewal. And what was cwazy was that no matter how many times you might hear any given song it never got old. It was always so intwesting to wisten to his stowies.
Mommys daddy was the type of person that you may think was a wittle wild or cwazy jus by seeing him. He had tattoos and eawwings and jus wooke a wittle wild! But once you got to know him you wealized that he was jus a fwiendly old man. Tehehehee! He was a vewy helpful person and always had advice for you no matter the pwobwem! Once you met him you would be guawanteed that you wouldnt forget him. This is a song that daddy showed mommy once because it made him think of her daddy.
And this is my daddys Papa. By Papa the Teddy means his gwandpa.
He went to Heaven about thwee years ago. Daddy has told the Teddy a wot about him.
Daddy has said that if he had to use one word to define a good man that word would be Papa. Daddy says that Papa was, much yike mommys daddy, the type of person who would go out of his way to help anyone. He was a vewy funny man who wasnt afwaid to joke about anything if it meant he could bwighten someones mood. Full of things to teach, Papa was always willing to let you make mistakes so he could help you learn fwom them.
Daddy says Papa was a vewy handy man who would twy to fix anything himself. Even if he didnt know how to do it! He would twy and he would usuwy succeed!!! He was the type of person who could bwing others together even if they didnt weawwy care for one another. For Papa others would overlook thare gwievances wif one another.
These are two daddys who may not be wif us anymore but are certainwy not forgotten. The Teddy may have never gotten to meet them but Ive wearned so much about them fwom mommy and daddy that I feel yike I knew them jus as well as mommy and daddy did. Thare bof missed so vewy much and bof mommy and daddy get sad and cwy sometimes when they think of them. And tha’s ok. Its ok to miss those you wove. And its ok to cwy about them. As wong as we wemember that its our job to keep thare memowies awive then its all ok.
So the Teddy would yike to give a wittle bit of wove and wemembwance to all the daddys who arent able to be wif thare famiwys.HAPPY FATHERS DAY!!
Thank you all for visiting my bwog! The Teddy woves you all! *big hugs*
