STORIES

DADDY HAD 2 SONS—HARDWORKING AND LAZY

Lazy son didn’t want to work, and asked daddy for daddy’s fortune to be shared with him.

Lazy son took away the money, squandered and lost all the money. One day, out of desperation as he had nowhere to sleep and nothing to eat, he decided to ask daddy for forgiveness – he would be happy if Daddy took him in as a servant to work.

To Lazy son’s surprise, Daddy rushed out to meet him when Daddy saw him coming back… and Daddy hugged him and kissed him…. totally forgiving him and giving him love.

Hardworking son spent days and nights working at the field, looking after daddy’s farms with great love and care.

He was shocked when he saw Daddy rushing to welcome Lazy son back home….and totally sad that Daddy was showing favourtism…

When Hardworking son asked Daddy why he was so unfair, Daddy said : “Son, ALL that I have IS yours…”

Dear Readers : Your daddy will always love you and give you the best. Sometimes if you don’t know and don’t ask, you don’t realize that he’s given you everything.

DADDY DOESN’T WANT TO PLAY WITH ME!
Author Uknown

Once there was a little boy who wanted his dad to teach him how to play catch. One sunny day the little boy’s father was sitting on the couch, drinking a beer, while watching a baseball game. The boy rushed into the house exclaiming

“Daddy, daddy, daddy, show me how to play catch!” The father, blankly starring at the television screen, replied ” In a little while son, let me finish watching this inning, come back in five minutes.”

“Okay daddy” said the boy and ran out of the room. Five minutes later the boy returned screaming “Daddy, let’s go, let’s play some catch now!”

The father turned to the boy and said hold on son the inning is not quite over come back in five more minutes. “Okay, daddy” said the boy as he shuffled out the room. Five minutes later the boy returned ball and glove in hand eagerly awaiting for his father to play some catch.

“Daddy, lets go, I want to be Ken Griffey Jr.!” shouted the boy.

By this time, the father had cracked open another cold one and another inning was taking place. Frustrated by the boy’s constant hindrances, the dad scanned the room. While scanning the room the father notice a magazine underneath the coffee table. On the cover of the magazine was a large picture of the world. The father, who was angered & annoyed, began tearing the magazine cover in to small pieces. After a few moments, of shredding up the magazine cover, the father placed the torn pieces on the magazine. Then, the father turned to his boy and said “Son, once you put this picture of the world (to continue reading

DADDY’S HANDS

Castles on the beach

Made with buckets full of sand

And tiny sandy fingers

Cupped inside my daddy’s hands

Slipping down the slide

My daddy was so tall

WALK A LITTLE SLOWER, DADDY

“Walk a little slower Daddy” said a child so small,
“I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.
Someday when I’m all grown up,
You’re what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who’ll want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true,
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you.”

There once was a father named Fred
Who had little hair on his head
But he opened tight lids
And loved all his kids
And tucked them each night in their beds.

You’ve read me stories
And tickled my toes
Given me cuddles
And wiped my nose

You’ve played my games
Again and again
And built a go-kart,
Tree-house and den

You’ve been my taxi
And helped me learn
Given me money
Which I didn’t earn

You’ve cheered me up
Whenever I’m sad
Today is for you, ‘cos
You’re the best, Dad!

and

This is for you, Dad
For today, I won’t make you sad
And I won’t make you mad
Because I am so very glad
That you are my Dad

DADDY, I LOVE YOU
(author unknown)

Daddy, I love you
For all that you do.

I’ll kiss you and hug you
‘Cause you love me, too.

You feed me and need me
To teach you to play.

So smile because I love you
On this Happy Father’s Day.

A SPECIAL DAD LIKE YOU
(author unknown)

I think you should know
You mean the world to me,
I can’t imagine anyone else
Could give so unselfishly.

For all the things you’ve done for me,
All the times that you were there,
Are why I know deep down inside
How much you really care.

Though I might not always say
That I appreciate what you do,
I feel so very richly blessed
To have a special dad like you.

UNTITLED

A father is someone that
holds your hand at the fair
makes sure you do what your mother says
holds back your hair when yor are sick
brushes that hair when it is tangled because mother is too busy
lets you eat ice cream for breakfeast
but only when mother is away
he walks you down the aisle
and tells you everythings gonna be ok

WHAT IS A DAD?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.
A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.
A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…
