Papa Poppy

Red Poppy


Shining brightly, for all to see,
Father flower, right there nightly,
Strong and steadfast, ready to enfold,
With love, his children he beholds.

Happy Father’s Day to my hubby, father of my three children, my own father and my father-in-law. And Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, on the good days and the bad. Parenting can be a bumpy road, but this is for the dads who keep going, day after day, making bad days better and good days great. We all need our fathers as much as our mothers. Blessings, Brenda

  1. I hope Fathers day was a great success Brenda! Everyone makes such a fuss over Mothers day and not so much for the Dads, but I always saw those days as equal – Dad got his special treats too. It was lovely even only a few years ago before my dad died he still lit up when he got our cards and presents – lovely memories too! πŸ™‚


  2. I thought the picture was ‘precious’ and the words you chose: exactly right! Wonderful and it would be extra-special for our family, since my grandkids’ grandpa goes by the name of “Poppi!” (My first husband his third wife chose, “Mimi and Poppi,” as their nicknames! Smiles and have a wonderful Father’s Day, Brenda!


    • Robin, I have heard Poppi as a nickname for dad or grandpa before. That was partly why I picked the poppy. I hope you have a great day with your family. We were gifted here with perfect weather. πŸ™‚ Have a great week ahead, too. πŸ™‚ Blessings, Brenda
