For all the children who are blessed with a good and loving father, treasure the moment you have with your dad. Time is precious. Spend each moment by creating a fun memory that will last a lifetime.
This is a poem that is very close to my heart and served as an inspiration when I'm sad and longed for a father.
* Footprints of the Sand *
One night a man had a dream.
He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Scenes from his life flashed across the sky
and he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of his life had flashed before him,
he recalled that at the lowest and saddest times of his life
there was only one set of footprints.
Dismayed, he asked, "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you'd walk with me all the way.
I don't understand why, when I needed you most,
you would leave me."
The Lord replied, "My precious child.
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering
when you saw only one set of footprints...
That was when I carried you."
