Father’s Day

“He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” ~Clarence Budington Kelland

Description is in the body of the post. When I was growing up my father wasn’t really in the picture but I had a grandpa who was there. My grandpa died when I was young but I remember his gentle loving spirit. He was a quiet hard-working man of great character and this quote reminded me of him.

I watch my son with his son and it’s so beautiful to experience the love that these two people share for one another. Orion loves his mom and dad like crazy and I’m so honored to be a part of their lives.

Happy Father’s Day to my son Arian and to all you dads out there!!

Have a stupendous day!!😘

  1. Beautiful quote and photo.
    My middle sons name is “Oren.”
    None of my sons have their own children yet but I am sure it will be an incredible thing when they do.
    Lovely that you have such sweet grandfather memories Steph.

    1. Hi Peta, I like the name Oren, very nice!! And thank you for your kind remarks.💗

  2. Beautiful. And I love the name Orion!

    1. Hi Diana!!! Thank you. My son loves his own name so much he couldn’t resist swapping out the “A”s in his name for “O”s in Orion’s. It also happens to be one of my favorite constellations. How are you doing?

      1. You are so sweet to ask. I’m all right. Nursing a shoulder injury but it’s on the mend. Thanks.

      2. You’re the second person I’ve talked to within the last couple of weeks who had a shoulder injury. I hope you feel better soon. I don’t know why your comment ended up in my spam but I’m glad I checked it. Have a nice weekend D.

  3. Love the quote. Precious picture.

    1. Thank you. The picture just melted my heart.

  4. It’s September in my part of the world. So what a bonus to get some extra texture in June!

    1. Thank you for commenting, I appreciate it. Was this particular comment meant for my blog? I thought maybe it might have been meant for another site.

      1. Ooh, I think there was a gremlin in the works. I did read and enjoy your piece, but I think the comments got scrambled somehow. Sorry!

      2. OKay, I kinda thought so but wasn’t sure. Those naughty gremlins can be a handful. 😉Thank you

  5. Moving words. I’m happy for you that your son and grandson share such a special bond.

  6. Nice post, Steph!

    1. Thanks Michelle. How are you doing?

      1. Hey Steph! Doing well! How are you?

      2. Good to hear. I’m doing pretty good as well

  7. I didn’t know my father or grandfathers so I loved your post. i had a lovely Dad and Grandad in law, though. Our posts are strangely similar today.

    1. Hi Kerry, I’m going right over to yours now. Hope you’re doing well.

      1. I am doing well, hope you are too my friend.

      2. I’m doing okay. Just trying to stay cool. Our weather has been unseasonably warm of late. We’ve been in the 80-90s.

      3. Try 96… 😎
