A Father's Day Plea



This took me a long time to make. Mostly because I took all but two of the pictures featured. Some of the quality left the images when it was uploaded to YouTube and I found out too late that I misspelled the German version of father, but besides that, I think it turned out fairly well. I'm an extreme perfectionist, so it's a relief to wash my hands and put away the tools at the end of any particular project.

Go tell your dad you love him. Go visit your father's grave. Go be a better dad and know that there are many in the world who still believe in, and fight for, your relevance and necessity in every child's life.

Fathers deserve an eternity of honor and admiration, not just a day.

Liz, you amaze me! I absolutely LOVE this and love all the pictures you took to make it so wonderful. I admire all you do in the fight for families. I don't know how you get it all done, but you are such an inspiration! Thanks for sharing your talents. I've passed this on to everyone I know. It's definitely worth watching!!! Miss you!

Thanks so much, Jacqui! I'm glad you liked it and I'm especially glad you passed it along. I don't know how I get this stuff done, either. Actually, I know, but it's not very flattering. Many other things fall by the wayside. Like, oh, cleaning my house and taking showers. :0) (Just kidding . . . about the showers).
