Friday Photo Flashback - Father's Day Edition

It is Friday Photo Flashback time. As always, I urge you to join Alicia and the rest of us as we pull photos out of photo albums (and from boxes!) to share our memories from the pre-digital age.

I'm still camping, but I didn't want to miss the party, so I found an extra special photo to share with you all. I hope you like it.

My photo this week is a Father's Day-themed photo. This is a picture of me, my baby brother, and my Dad. I was not-quite 7 and my brother looks to be about 4-6 months old (he was huge!) and my dad was so old...he was all of 27! Even though I was not his biological child, my dad has always loved me as if I were. Through "hiring" my bicycle seat to working on my first car to telling me he loved me when I really screwed up, my dad has always been there for me. No, he's not materially generous and he can be pretty gruff, but through thick and thin, he's always been there...having faith in me. Isn't that was dad's are supposed to do?


So, there you have it...my Friday Photo Flashback photo. Thanks for letting me walk down memory lane with you. It put a smile on my face, that is for sure.

Don't forget, if you want to see what everyone else is doing, head over to Alicia's at More Than Words...it is always fun.

Awwww, that is sweet! Just proof that it takes so much more to be a dad, than just a name.

oh I am reading a book to my boys about a little boy in mid evil days. It´s an alegory about our Christian life. He just got adopted into the royal family. This is how we all should feel. Extatic on being adopted into the royal family. God´s family! Your picture brought this to my mind again. ;)
