Posts Tagged ‘Father’s Day’

My daddy taught me how to fish . . .My father taught me how to fish, and how to make a string box with a handle. And the silent peace of fishing, and the joy of soaring my kite in the summer wind.

Remembering him this Father’s Day, I thank my Daddy for all his helpful influences.

I miss the smile behind his eyes, as if he knew a secret joke about life and knew that I’d learn it some day.  But I can still hear his deep, warm voice chuckling, “You’re welcome, kiddo.”

A Note from Author D.J. Houston

FATHERS — and our unique experiences and life lessons with them — are as varied as individuals themselves.

My own father’s common sense, persistent work ethic, a calm strength of character and endearing, almost corny sense of humor are traits I treasure and remember him for most.  But when I was a child, he could seem a bit mysterious. . .

Remembering him this Father’s Day . . . I miss the smile behind his eyes, as if he knew a secret joke about life and knew that I’d learn it some day . . .

 A Note from Author, D.J. Houston  & MORE 🙂

FATHERS — and our unique experiences and life lessons with them — are as varied as individuals themselves.

My own father’s common sense, persistent work ethic, a calm strength of character and endearing, almost corny sense of humor are traits I treasure and remember him for most.  But when I was a child, he could seem a bit mysterious.

His favorite song was “The Tennessee Waltz,” but I never saw him dancing.  He’d been to college, but never encouraged me to go.  He’d been a soldier, but he wouldn’t talk about the war . . .

FATHER’S  DAY MEMORIES

from HAVENWOOD TALES Beginnings

“I was letting the strength of his quiet nature spread slowly around me, like calm on a morning pond.”

Havenwood Morning PondHe reminded me of a sycamore tree with his tall, lean build and sturdy limbs.  His skin was white when he rolled up his sleeves to wash his hands in the wintertime.   And his hair was as shiny black as a raven’s wing, only curly.

He had a sort of handsome face, I thought, with a high forehead like Timmy’s and hazel eyes like mine.  But I was just beginning to see him as more than some stranger who’d been smart enough to marry Mama . . .
