For the Dads

It’s Father’s Day today and we shall be lighting a candle for our Dads as we do every year.
Rather than reblog a previous post, I’d like to share something personal from the Dads.
My FIL was an artist of sorts and liked to work in pastels. We have a lovely picture of a cottage in a snow scene which we intend to frame again and put it up in the lounge.
He knew I liked nature and birds, and did this for us which we had up in the boat.
My Dad tried his hand at this and that but again, knowing how much I loved birds, did this
Both items are originals, no kits, paint it by numbers, or tracings.
To us they are priceless and dearly loved, as were the two men who made them.

So Dads, wherever you are, know we think of you every day, not just today and if you see our candle burning, our love is heaven sent in the flame.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. YES FATHERS ARE IMPORTANT, GREAT POST, CHINA

  4. Those are stunning. I hardly have anything from my dad. A couple of photos and his ww2 sergeant major baton. Wish I had more.

    • A few things got sent to charity shops by mistake when we bought the boat, so what I do have is even more precious. I still have the now battered cardy Mum knitted for their Silver Wedding anniversary and Hubby has his Dad’s ceremonial sword and medals.
