Father’s Day Is Meant To Be A Time For Us To Spend Some
Time With Our Dad’s On The Third Sunday In June!   A Time To
Gather The Whole Family Around For A Barbecue And Good Old Family Fun And

Reminiscing About The Old Days When Everyone Was Much Younger And To
Retell The Stories We Have About Dad And Ourselves.

Father’s Day Is A Special Day To Share Old Memories With Dad And
To Build New Ones Too, If You Are Blessed To Still Have Your Dad With You.
Be Sure And Take Lots Of Photos And Make New Memories If You Are Among The Lucky Ones!

Some Of Us Have Had Our Dad’s Pass On And Are Now The Family’s Oldest Dad, So Father’s Day Has A Deeper Meaning To Us As We Look Back And Think Of The Last Memory Of Seeing Dad.

Families Are Complicated, Sometimes!  Most People Didn’t Live A Walt Disney Family Life.  Some Don’t Have Warm And Fuzzy Memories.  But Whatever Your Memory I Would Encourage You To Take Today As An Opportunity To Remember And Write Out – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Dad”!

This Wasn’t Meant To Be A Writing Prompt, But Perhaps It’s Not Such
A Bad Idea To Write About Dad.  Take Out A Pen And Paper And Put It Down In Ink, The Old Fashioned Way (Or A Keyboard If You Must).  Close Your Eyes And Relive The Last Moments You Remember Seeing Your Dad And Let Those Images And Feelings Flow Onto The Paper.  Say What Your Heart Needs To Say!  Open Up Your Mind’s Memory Box And Play – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Your Dad”

Let Love And Joy And/Or Forgiveness Flow Over Your Soul!  Give Yourself Permission To Sit Quietly Alone In A Room And Remember, And Then Write It Out So You Will Have It On Record!

Write Out – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Dad”  For Yourself, Your Family And The Rest Of The World!!!!

Happy Father’s Day To You And Yours!!  May It Be A Blessed Day For All!

Please Consider Reblogging This To Your Followers So They Can Have A Chance To Write Out Their Memory And Also Share This Post With Their Followers.

Inspired By My Poem – “A SPECIAL TIME WITH HIM

Special Thanks For The Inspirational Nudge Provided By “The Tunnel Of Music” By Miriam Hurdle On Theshowerofblessings Blog For The Inspirational Seed For – ” A SPECIAL TIME WITH HIM “


  1. My Dad was 92 years old yesterday and we had a house full of family and friends just creating new memories. The look on his face when his youngest of 7 great grandchildren was place in his arms. was priceless.

  2. Thanks for posting this Chuck. I only had 39 ‘Father’s Days’ with my Dad, the last of which was in 1973. But I still have a beer with him every year on the third Sunday in June. Two fathers together.
