Sailors Father's Day

Celebrating Our Dads

I hope everyone had a memorable Father’s Day!  Whether it was spending time with your Dad or recalling fond memories.

Flag Day,  June 14, 2014,  I was fortunate to be invited to the retirement celebration of a friend,  CWO 4 David L Miller,  United States Navy.  I’ve known David since 9th grade.

In my heart,  I knew David was the best of the best,  but to hear it from a captain and an admiral of the United States Navy was grand. To witness the reading of “Old Glory”  and the “Passing of the Flag” was enlightening.

David’s heartfelt acknowledgement to his three daughters,  the ladies in wait,  for their great courage and understanding during the times he was unable to be there for them,  while he was serving his country for all of us,  was very touching.

Yes,  this day,  Flag Day,  June 14,  2014,  the day before Father’s Day, I sat watching David with his daughters and many happy memories of my Dad came rushing to my heart.  For this day marked 19 years since I lost my Dad,  Warren J Ratty,  on Wednesday,  June 14,  1995.  I love and miss him!  Semper Fi

Dads are special,  they listen to us,  they believe in us when we sometimes don’t believe in ourselves,  their love is unconditional!   I see that everyday in my husband.  He is always there for his sons and I am so proud of him!

Always remember,  LIFE LOVES YOU!
