Fathers are wonderful people -by Helen Rice Steiner

Hi there everyone! As most of you know, we are approaching Father's day. I personally want to thank God for a wonderful father who raised 5 beautiful daughters who all thought they were number one. From my first Tricycle to my Prom dress, somehow I looked like a princess.

Sunday June16, 2019, tributes should start pouring in.

Here is a poem by Helen Steiner Rice

Fathers are wonderful people and too little understood.

And we do not sing their praises as often as we should...

For somehow, Father seems to be the man who pays the bills,

While Mother binds up little hurts

And nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily

To live up to 'his image'

As protector and provider

And 'hero of the scrimmage'...

And perhaps that is the reason

We sometimes get the notion,

That Fathers are not subject

To the thing we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,

Where no one else can see

You'll find he's sentimental

And as 'soft' as he can be...

But he's so busy every day

In the grueling race of life,

He leaves the sentimental stuff

To his partner and his wife...

But Fathers are just wonderful

In a million different ways,

And they merit loving compliments

And accolades of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires

To fortune and success

Is to make the family proud of him

And to bring them happiness...

And like Our Heavenly Father,

He's a guardian and a guide,

Someone that we can count on

To be always on our side."

Helen Steiner Rice

Born 1900 to 1981.
