Fathers Day / March 5, 2019 / Alta Gentry.
He would never mention it. He didnt want thanks. He knew wed appreciate it and love him all the more. Dad always worried about his girls. One time he stayed on the phone with one of my sisters while she used a pressure cooker to can. He was worried shed somehow blow it up. He even told her to put her baby outside in the playpen while she was using the pressure cooker! Yes my Dad was a quiet man. He loved to read he loved to watch the Brooklyn Dodgers on TV he loved to have his girls do easy chores for him and he loved to spend time with his family and have a grand (simple) meal prepared for him. His wife - and his girls - could cook.

Lets reflect on the qualities we may feel are important in a father: - Physical strength is a quality many children value in their father. Children feel proud when their father is strong and physically fit. They feel protected against whatever danger there may be in the world. Knowing he is strong provides reassurance and a sense of security.- Moral strength is important. Children like to see their father do the right thing have principles and be fair.
