What Makes A Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

W hen I was: 12 years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn't know anything about that. He

W hen I was: 25 years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been

W hen I was: 30 years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a
lot of experience.
W hen I was: 35 years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.
W hen I was: 40 years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.
W hen I was: 50 years old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this
over with him. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have
learned a lot from him.
