    The History

    Father’s Day is celebrated in the 3rd Sunday in June. The idea for creating a day for children to honor their fathers began in Spokane, Washington. A woman by the name of Sonora Smart Dodd thought of the idea for Father's Day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Having been raised by her father, Henry Jackson Smart, after her mother died, Sonora wanted her father to know how special he was to her. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man. Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first [FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]Father's [/FONT][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]Day [/FONT][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]celebration[/FONT][/FONT] in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910.
    In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. President Nixon, in 1972, established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third Sunday of June. So Father's Day was born as a token of love and gratitude that a daughter cherishes for her beloved father. Roses are the [FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]Father's [/FONT][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]Day [/FONT][FONT=Arial,verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif]flowers[/FONT][/FONT]: red to be worn for a living father and white if the father has died.

    Father's Day Quotes~

    "It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was." -- Anne Sexton

    "To be a successful father . . . there's one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don't look at it for the first two years." -- Ernest Hemingway

    "I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work fifteen and sixteen hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example." -- Mario Cuomo

    "If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right." -- Bill Cosby

    happy fathead's day.

    we get to live and interact with the little people that we love above all others - and they give us a day in our honor on top of that.

    it's like stealing....

    thank you, God.

    Thanks.....my kids got me a "Super Dad" shirt, a Tiger Woods golf game (PS2), and breakfast in bed.

    But the greatest Father's Day I had was 8 years ago. My daughter was born on Father's Day. She was my first child. I'll never forget the Dr holding her up after my wife delivered saying, "Happy Father's Day!".

    That was cool.....and I never tire of the story.
