Dear Dad, I've Never Told You This...

Hello Friends, Followers and Viewers,
How great is that man you address as "dad"?  Have you ever thought about some things you wished you had told him or want to tell him?  Father's Day is next month, June 21. Some dads or fathers have not been in a lot of children lives. Either due to death, military duty or a refusal to accept a child as your own, they aren't there.  Today, we are going to think of those who have an active role in your life. Have you held back on some things you want to say but you're thinking, he already knows.  Don't take it for granted that he does.  Men are not like women.  They appear to not have that intuition that women have.  Sometimes they can't sense that something is wrong or that they have done something to make you happy or sad. You really have to be frank and exactly to the point when talking with your dad/father.  This Father's Day or any day that he is still alive and can listen to you or can read anything you write to him, let him know exactly some things that you have refused to tell him. You may have a fear of opening your mouth to say those things you want to say.  A suggestion to those of you in that category...try writing a nice letter or note and place it in that card you will send or give to him.  Dear Dad, I've never told you this...
I'm sharing cards that can be given this Father's Day:

Writing a Father's Day message this year may feel strange at first but give it a try.  Your dad may be one to keep that note tucked in his wallet for future references.
Thanks for viewing.  I love to hear from you.  Your comments are always welcomed.  You can always share this with others.  They may like what they see.
Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
