I'd like to wish a happy Father's Day to a couple of the greatest dad's that I know...my husband and my dad.
I learned early the value of work from my father - he taught us to "put our shoulder to the wheel". I may not have always appreciated the hours spent weeding the garden, mowing the lawn, roofing the house, canning vegetables, folding laundry, washing dishes, laying tile....but I did learn not to be afraid of hard work. I truly appreciate that "can do" attitude.
At first glance my husband doesn't seem to have that much in common with my dad - but don't be fooled. Steve can also put his shoulder to the wheel. I sometimes give him a gentle (or not so gentle) nudge - such as ripping up the carpet in the living room...so he can lay new flooring, but he gets the job done too.
