Quotable Sunday - Father's Day

Hello Everyone,

It's Quotable Sunday and I thought I would make my quotes about Father's since it is Father's Day. So Happy Father's Day to my Dad and my Step-Dad. Also Happy Father's Day to those men in my life that aren't my father - my husband, my brother, my great son-in-law, my brother-in-laws and all of the other great men in my life who are great Dads.

He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew

Father! - to God himself we cannot give a holier name. ~William Wordsworth

The greatest gift I ever had Came from God; I call him Dad!~Author Unknown

Hop over to Toni's at A Dose of Toni for more Quotable Sunday posts. I hope all of you father's out there have a great Father's Day! Until next time

Have a blessed day!

Great quotes today! I didn't find the "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." one, that is so true. Thanks for sharing!

Oh goodness, I really like this one. I think the same can be said about a super clean house that does not look lived in, versus that house that you just know kids are playing and having a great time.
