Father's Day
The History of Father's Day
Anyone can make the donation to create a child and receive the term "father" but not everyone can be a Daddy, the guy that is there day in and day out making sure that love is known and felt, teaching life skills, being the tickle monster when laughter is needed and being a haven of comfort when tears flow.  Daddy, the guy that knows the child's needs - both emotional and physical. Daddy, the guy that will sit with their kid and watch cartoons with them.  Daddy, the guy that will discipline in love because he knows the potential of his child and he doesn't want it lost to entitlement or rebellion. See, anyone can make that DNA donation but not just anyone can be a Daddy.  So to those of you who are Daddy's to children that don't have your DNA - keep on keeping on, you are making a difference.  To those of you who are Daddy's to the children who have your DNA - keep on keeping on, you are making a difference. Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's.

Daylight Appreciation Day
I love the long days of summer.  I love driving home from work and it's light out.  I love the first of the day when the sun is rising and the end of the day when the sun is setting.  I love the daylight but I don't love the bright, direct sunlight. What about you?

Make Music Day
Maybe you don't know how to make music but you can certainly appreciate it! Take some time today to appreciate music - maybe a genre you don't normally listen to. *wink*

Finally Summer Day
What is Summer Solstice?
Throw a party!

#TransformationTuesday

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 




Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 








#FRIENDSFriday

So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!


And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

#SentimentalSunday

sen·ti·men·tal
/ˌsen(t)əˈmen(t)l/
adjective
of or prompted by feelings of tenderness, sadness, or nostalgia.



Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
