My Dad

This is a card for a very special person in my life - my Dad. He is 90 on September 6, and we are having a party with family and friends that Dad wants to be there. He has lived all his life in the village where he still lives, and is a fund of knowledge, with memories going back forever. Sadly Mum is no longer with us, but several years after Mum passed away, David remarried to a friend of Mum's, and Daisy has been a rock in his life in recent years, particularly as he has not enjoyed the best of health recently.

I found this verse via a link on Jak's blog, Crafters Kitchen, called Verses 4 Cards, and if you found that if you are ever stuck for some thing special to put into a card this then would be a good place to go.

The images on the card represent the things he has loved and enjoyed during his lifetime, such as his dog, woodworking and gardening (I did not know what a shop bought vegetable or apple was until I left home!), and his regular games of whist with a drop of brown milk - his name for whisky. Throughout his life he has been sustained by his faith, which is often a rare place to be these days.

Thanks for stopping by.
