HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

I know that our kids will be blessing you on this day.
Usually, we women, wearing many hats,
Tend to leave it to our kids to bless you.
But I’d like to make a point for this Father’s Day
That we, women, appreciate and bless you, too.

For centuries, we have been in love with you.
We love you for what you are and respect you for trying to do your best.
Because we women are an intelligent, strong and powerful race of people,
Sometimes you must find us intimidating.
But fear not.

We are in your corner.
We are your partners in life.

We share and understand your struggle and your effort
to stay wise and clear in our rapidly changing society.
We, especially, respect you for your decision
to commit yourselves to being fathers.
It is a very tough decision to make in today’s world
in which constant adjustment of your ideas and actions are demanded of you.

I don’t know if we ever thanked you.
So here it is: Thank you, and we love you.

Yoko Ono Lennon

MY DADDY IS BEAUTIFUL

MY DADDY IS BEAUTIFUL is a tribute
to all Fathers of the World
from each of your children;
A celebration of the love that nurtures us all.

WHAT TO DO

Upload your father’s photo to
our Facebook groupFlickr group, Instagram or Twitter.
Add the tag #mdib.

Write his name
a note about him, to him and to yourself.

If it gets to be a love letter,
a poem or a very long message
or as long as a novel (!)
that’s fine.

Make sure to squeeze him with big hugs and kisses in your mind
and send it with a sprinkle of  i ii iii

My dad, Robert J. Gaudet, died of kidney failure on November 22, 1963, before readily available dialysis, at the age of 31. When I was 19, my brother donated a kidney to me after I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure. This was on October 17th, 1979. After 34+ years of thriving and prospering, I went into rejection and returned to dialysis. Now, I am awaiting a second "Gift of Life" aka a kidney transplant. I am just about to publish my memoir (dedicated to my father) called "Dancing with Rejection: A Beginner's Guide to Immortality". My vision with the writing project is to immortalize my father's spirit, as he died so young.

You left us a January 5, on the eve of Magic Kings... angels received you as a child, always in our hearts Victoriano Dad ...your daughter your grandchildren and great-grandchildren and nieces we remind in the religious ceremony and always...
My dady is beautiful! <3
your sentences, your teachings:
*be like the straw that erodes stone.
*persevere and prevail,
*before any obstacle or failure to have the ability to see opportunity and move on, always positive, with the magical power of the will.

Nos dejaste un 05 de enero, en la víspera de Reyes Magos ... los ángeles te recibieron como un niño, siempre en nuestros corazones papá Victoriano ... tu hija tus nietos los bisnietos y sobrinos te recordamos en la ceremonia religiosa y siempre.
Mi papá es hermoso! <3
Tus frases, tus enseñanzas:
*ser como la gota que orada la piedra.
*persevera y triunfarás,
*ante cualquier obstáculo o fracaso tener la habilidad para ver la oportunidad y seguir adelante siempre en positivo, con el mágico poder de la voluntad.

This is my dad, Wayne Brown. He passed 3-25-10. I miss him everyday. He was my role model, shopping, gold, and gardening buddy. He loved his horses, family, and friends. He was smart, kind, and funny. Everyone respected him. I love him.
