Happy Father’s Day!

Cherokee Bill and his daughter
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. ~Mark Twain, “Old Times on the Mississippi” Atlantic Monthly, 1874

Fathers are the biggest source of strength for a child. The innocent eyes of a child perceive father as the all-powerful, most knowledge, truly affectionate and the most important person in the family. For daughters, fathers are the first men they adore and fall in love with. While for sons their fathers are the strongest person they know and someone they aspire to emulate. Even for the grownups fathers are someone whom they look up to for the most experienced and honest advice that is always in the best of our interest. For this great figure in our life that we know as father – it becomes our utmost duty to pay our humblest tribute on the occasion of Father’s Day.

Say Thanks to Dad on Father’s Day

Children blessed with a loving father should consider themselves fortunate. For, they have someone to take care of their needs and interests. Someone to stop them when they are diverting to a wrong path and guide them on a road to success and virtue. For many of us fathers have always been there to solve our innumerous mathematics and science problems and explain the same formula hundredth time or better still until it is understood by us. Fathers would never ever give a smallest of hint to let us know how hard they work to take care of our needs and fulfill even the most whimsical of demands… For all their adorable scolding and affectionate punishments we all owe a big thanks to our Dads.

Apologize to Dad on Father’s Day

Father’s Day also brings with it the wonderful opportunity to apologize for all our rude and insensitive behavior. We as children often take the love and affection of our parents for granted and treat them with outright contempt. We need to apologize. We must feel great to have the presence of loving father in our lives and do not disrespect the blessing of God on us. On Father’s Day we must says “Sorry” to our Dad and seek their forgiveness for our wrong behavior.

Celebrate Father’s Day with Dad

We must make all efforts to celebrate Father’s Day with our Dad. Children staying away from father must especially strive to spend the day with father and show gratitude for all their support and love. We must pamper father by spending the day in a manner he likes most. It could be going out for a picnic or indulging him with a gourmet meal. We can also express love with thoughtful gifts accompanied by a bouquet of his favorite flowers. The idea is to show our affection and tell Daddy how much he is loved and appreciated not just on Father’s Day but every single day of our lives.

    Ohh, you’re Cherokee who is pictured with his dad? That cute picture, thanks for sharing it with us, is very pretty. It is very beautiful and moving this post.
    What I like Father’s Day is to hug my dad and see him smile, so he can know that I love him. My dad I owe everything, the unconditional help me with my studies, and although I do not tell, I love him, I should tell him. My dad is an example of hard work and dedication to work, and I am very proud to be his daughter.
    After thinking that I wanted to upload my picture with my dad too … (I smile thinking this).
    A special greeting in the Father’s Day.

    • Dear Anabella:
      this photograph was taken about three years before my father passed into spirit. I’m glad that it inspired you to upload a picture of yourself with your father. If you are on face book why don’t you look for me and we can connect. Many blessings and a happy father’s day, Cherokee Billie

    I have to think back in time.. my father ( he was my father to me even he wasnt in blood) passed away 18 years ago.. (one year before he could meet his grandson-my son-) and I often think about all the things he teached me … all the afternoons spent with me answering my so many questions about everything.. when I was a child..
    he came into my life when I was 5 years old. and he is in my oldest memories..
    I dont have his blood or his last name . but I received from him all that a FATHER is..
    LOVE .. comprehension.. advise..
    Today for Father’s Day . .I give thanks to my father..
    he was a fighter..
    Thank you Papá.. wherever you are now.. ❤

    • All that matters is the love You both shared with each other. That is the Eternal and will never die. Thank you so much for your beautiful post.
      many blessings,

  6. Saba, that is wonderful news, I am so happy for you!!

    CB, that is a lovely picture of you and your father! Father’s Day has been hard for me since my dad passed in 2000, but I have such wonderful memories of him that I will always cherish. I can feel him close by me today.

    I know that he hasn’t had much to say to us lately, but I can’t help but think of Michael’s kids today. Today is their first Father’s Day w/o their father and I know how painful that is, I hope Michael is close to them today and that they can feel his presence and undying love.

    Love & light to all!!!!

    Dear Cherokee Billie, what a precious picture of you and your Dad.

    I think about my Dad often. When I was young, I went with him wherever he went that I could go. He was a farmer, and I even remember sitting in his lap and driving the tractor sometimes. I would go with him when he would go to feed the cows or work in the garden. I wanted to please my Dad and would do whatever I could. It would break my heart if I knew that he was displeased with me because I loved and respected him so much. I am very thankful for the father that I had. He died in 1996.

    I’d like to address Gisela above in that there is so much more to being a father than being the biological one. A father is someone who loves, cares, guides, redirects, teaches, and is just there for you in the good times and in the bad times. He’s someone that you can depend on to correct you when you’re wrong or headed in the wrong direction and love you while doing it or he’s there to support you when you’re doing something right or good.

    Congratulations, Saba, on your good news!

    love to all!
    Anna

  8. Cherokee Billie I love the article and your picture posted. I love my dad, and I thank God for him. To all those who have lost their dad know you dad is with you in spirit and always will be. One day you will be reunited with your dad and be able to hug and hold on to him forever. We all must br greatful for both of our parents. They made the choice to give life to us and take care of us. Remember the good times, and hold them memories close to your heart for no one can take that away from you.

  9. Great news Saba 🙂

    I’m lucky to have both my parents. My Dad has always been the silent sort of type, but he is special 🙂 We have Father’s Day later in the year in NZ.

    Love Susanxxxx

  10. What a beautiful article! And I loved the picture of you and your father!

    Here in Brazil, we celebrate Father’s Day in August (strange, ha? 😀 *laughs*), but I’m celebrating today, too, for the happines to be with my father. I liked the idea of posting a picture of me and my father on Facebook! I’ll do that! 🙂

    I’m so grateful to still have my father here on the physical plane. He’s a remarkable man and a wonderful father. I can’t imagine my life without him. Everything I am today I owe to his effort, his love and patience, his friendship and his teachings (oh, what valuable teachings!).

    May all fathers, on Earth and on the spiritual plane be remembered and honored! God bless them all!

    Love,
    Mayra

      God bless you all !

  11. Hello Cherokee Billie! I loved your post that is a very special picture of you and your dad. I lost my dad in 1996 november 10th. My dad died in his sleep no suffering he died on a Sunday morning by the time I got to my parents house my dad was on the floor, my brother thought he could give him CPR but he was gone already. That was a nightmare for me I am the oldest in my family and was trying to everything to help my mom that day but the worst part was I had to call my baby sister who was in medical school at the time and tell her over the phonethat dad had died. I was very close to my dad things happened before his funeral and at his funeral and after his funeral that was soo important. The day of my dads funeral I had been sleeping and heard my dad call my name I sat up in bed and knew I was not dreaming. I gave my fathers eulogy in church without writting anything down on paper or shedding a tear I think my dad gave me the strength.When we were at the cemetary during the ceramony it started snowing large snowflakes after the ceramony was over the sun was shinging. I knew that was my dad saying he was okay he loved snow!Afew days after my dads funeral the phone rang and when I answered the phone I heard my dad say hello Terry. A few things happened later that I knew that is from my dad. My dad was 65when he died .This year on June 25th which is my dads birthday he would have been 79 years old. Michael died on my fathers birthday a day so easy to remember for me I am glad Michaels children are going to Gary Indiana on the 25th with their grandmother and family to see where their father grew up. I really do think Michael had something to do with this to get his family away from Los Angeles that. I hope that for all our fathers living or are in heaven that they all know how much we love them and appreciate them and thank them for all the sacrifices they have made for us and also for our dads to know how proud that we are of them and my case miss our dads soo muchbut have the feeling that our dads are watching overus at all timed and guiding our lives in the right direction. Thasnk you cherokee billie for the beautiful picture of you and your dad! God bless all of us in our spiritual community and Cherokee Billie for bringing us all together this past year I can not believe its almost a year since Michael passed away May Gods white light protect us all every day of our lives and our families Love Terry

    • Dear Terry:
      thank you for sharing your story about your father. It’s never easy to lose your parents and having to experience it the way you did was definitely difficult. It’s wonderful how your father let you know that he was OK. They always do let you know.
      We have an interesting coincidence. My mother telephoned her best friend the day after she died just to tell her she was OK, because she died when she was on the telephone with her friend When she suffered a heart attack, and she talked about what it was like in spirit and how she could eat everything and not have to gain weight. That definitely was my mother!
      I agree that it’s best that Michael’s family is far far away from Los Angeles and the craziness that is going to be going on there. Having lived in Los Angeles California for 51 years I know what it’s like around celebrities. I pray that his family receives comfort and healing.
      Many blessings,
      Cherokee Billie
