I recently made some T-shirt designs for Father’s Day and my stepfather was on my mind while coming up with ideas. And when I did the design ‘The Man…The Myth…The Legend’, I could not help but think of him. He is a remarkable man!
You know the old adage ‘anyone can become a father but it takes someone special to be a dad’; well I know it sounds so hokey but it is so true. My step-dad married my mother in 1977 when I was thirteen, my sister was eleven and my brother was ten. My mother couldn’t have any more kids so he knew that they would never have children of their own together. From day one, he accepted us and treated us as his own. I know without a doubt that he truly thinks of us as his children. No father could love his own biological kids anymore than my step dad loves us.
He sacrificed from the start by working two jobs to provide for us. He worked long hours for years so that we could have what we needed and most of what we wanted. And not one time in the last thirty-one years has he ever complained or had regrets.
Now, as a grandfather (he is known as Poppy), he dotes and spoils them rotten. I think that is a grandparent’s job though. There is nothing he wouldn’t do for his children and grandchildren.
I have so much respect and admiration for him! He IS The Man…The Myth… The Legend! You are so loved Dad! Happy Father’s Day!
If you would like to tell us about your father, we would love to hear it. Hope to hear from you. Enjoy Life!!!
