Sunday Sketches - Thanks Dad

Happy Father's Day
I found this poem and I thought it was perfect for this sketch I did for Sunday Sketches -

"Walking down the winding path

I hold tight to Daddy's hand
His firm but gentle grip makes me
Feel safe like nothing else can
I don't know where we are going
But my Daddy knows the way
He leads us down the path that's right
And will not let us stray
I hold on to his hand tightly
I know he won't let me fall
For my Daddy is the biggest and the strongest of them all
I don't ever have to worry
When I hold his hand in mine
Because I know he will protect
And love me for all time"
author - Sharon Froese

is dedicated to ALL of the dads out there, today!

Thanks Dad!
I Love You!

Happy Father's Day
 to all of the Dad's today!
This is a quick sketch I did for Sunday Sketches, over at The Blue Chair Diary
See you there!
Enjoy the day

Absolutely wonderful, heather. Adorable and so you. how sweet of you to draw this for your dad too and all us dads out there. Ty too for stopping by. Very sweet of you as well.

You know, I STILL love it when my young adult daughter ever says, Daddy. not terribly often these days but whenever she does, my heart still totally melts.

I added, btw, part II to the Father's DAy adventures this evening. :)
