I Have Good Memories of My Father

I was a Daddy's Little Girl! 76 People

    Thanks Dad

    My Dad was an Engineer.  He wasn't the lovey, dovey type.  He didn't say I love you over and over again. He showed my love by his actions.  I didn't get lots of kisses or hugs,  but I have memories that will last forever.  He took us places, he show...

    November 30th

    This day in 1992 started out as a special day.  It was Mother's birthday.  She was turning 66!  I do not know what my Dad gave my Mother for her birthday.  But, he always gave her a present that she adored. Mother's lady friends were giving her a birthday...

    From Here to There

    When my Mother died, it was hard to go through her things and sort out the keep and don't keep items. I found this hand written poem tucked in between a bundle of love letters that Dad had written to my Mom, while he was overseas in the Navy/Merchant Marines.  From Here to...

    He Gave of Himself

    Thanksgiving Day 1992.  It started out like all the past Thanksgiving Celebrations at the family home!  The woman in the kitchen with her battenburg apron.  Bustling around and preparing the holiday feast for her family.  Turkey and Ham, stuffing, mashed...

    Unforgettable

    He gave me a very beautiful name copied from a child actress..He seldom said I love you but he made me felt it in many ways. He molded me to love him by being so patient with me, answering my innocent questions. He never put/point a finger on me, neither shout at me or at least...

    Where's the Money, Brought Back Good Memories!

    My father was one, who would often share his time or efforts with you.  He didn't often share his belongs with you, but that's another story. When he would give a loan and I mean loan you money, it was always expected that you would repay that loan.  He always had a...

    There Is Enough Room For Everyone- This

    happened right after my baby sister was born, which was about 3 months before I turned 4, and is one of my earliest memories. It came to me recently when I saw the casual home picture my mother took of my father with all of us kids: me,my younger brother,infant sister,and older...

    Right now, my father is in the den rehearsing.

    ..and man...it's like his bass is singing. Compared to him? I'm garbage. Lol This isn't a pity party. You have to understand one hong about my father: when he picks up his bass, it's like all the stress and anguish of the day to day just melts away into an awe inspiring...

    My first Father's Day without my Dad.

    Sad but also such a great reminder of a man that gave me a place to grow and spread my wings. When I was 7 I couldn't manage to make my kite fly at school like the rest of the kids. God knows why but I tried. That weekend Dad had a massive kite made for me. It was so big we had...

    My father is an outstanding man.

    His father died when he was really young, and occasionally he would hit my dad and his brothers when he lost his temper. My grandpa wasn't the worst of people all the time, but he did have his moments. My own father never abused us as children, occasionally giving us spankings...
