Quotes About My Other Half

"Today is not the real Fathers Day. It is the man made version. The real Fathers Day are the other 364 other days of the year that I get to see my boys grow into men and my girls grow into ladies and feel I had a slight part of the people that they turned out to be. Not a better feeling in the world. With every life lesson taught, half of which are understood at the time, and the other half that are understood after I am told to stop being ridiculous - EVERYDAY is Fathers Day. And I wouldnt trade it for the world. Good and bad. I can honestly say there is no feeling on earth, like being a father and a dad." - Author: John A. Passaro
