Dad - Everything Honest, Constant and Strong (and getting personal)

My Dad was the stablizing force in our family.  He grew up in a large immigrant family on a dry wheat ranch.  His father was struck by lightening when my Dad was only two, so my grandmother raised that large family on her own.  As a result, my Dad was very close to his mother and I believe he learned to be extra nurturing because he was raised by his mother. 

Every one of Dad's little girls were his favorite and there were four of us!  Some of my best memories growing up are the ones of me sitting on my daddy's knee, teasing with him.  His nickname for me was "Punkin Seed" and hence, the reason I have named my crafting blog and business "Punkin Seed Productions".  It is still very hard for me to see any faults in my father - he was a wonderful man.  He passed away when I was only 21 and I have so missed him in my adult life and the lives of my children.  So, celebrating Father's Day for me is a very bitter sweet event.....remembering a father who made a tremendous impact in my life and those of my 6 siblings.  Thank you Dad, I love and miss you.
