when the man who is your father-in-law
has been part of your life since you started
dating his son
when you were 16 years old
has always made you feel like you were one of his own
well then
are doubly blessed
on father's day
happy father's day
daddy dick
we love you

    i love how we inherit a whole new set of sisters and brothers (and parents) when we get married. and yes, i married my high school sweetheart too. we met when I was 14 and we have been together since - it will be 20 years next week :)

  2. Beth, I can see where your honey gets his stellar looks! From his daddy without question.

    You are blessed...and well deserved. My new father-in-love is enduring chemo and radiation and the struggle is hard. I really love him and am very worried...so I'll send a prayer of health and longevity to your two Dads while I pray for mine...

    Enjoy this day!

  3. I hope you send him the link so he can see how much you admire him and care for him.

  4. Oh how tightly woven are the strands that bind young lovers and weave a cloak of shared experience that warms them as they grow old together. You're lucky to have a web of family that provides such strength.

  5. Hunky father-in-law to match the hunky hubby ! Here's to the wonderful men in our lives !

  6. that is indeed a beautiful thing. lovely shots too

  7. such a sweet relationship you have~

  8. so sweet.

    doubly blessed. i feel the same.
    my hubby's dad was here yesterday.
    he calls me cutey and kisses me on the cheek every time i see him.

  9. Sixteen?? Oh, man! You are blessed. A lifetime love. And then some.

**I love reading the comments you leave, as they make me feel like we're sitting in my kitchen, having a cup of tea, discussing life and wondering where all the time has gone ...beth
