52 in 10

We are at week 8 already doesn't seem all that long since we started this.
This week we are encouraged to do a page or journal about someone how has inspired us and for me it was my Dad.
so without further ado her is my page on my Hero my Dad
My Hero My Dad

the journalling reads
The person who had the biggest influence on my life was my father, yet for the first 5 years of my life I hardly saw him. I was born during the second world war and dad was in the army. I loved him from the moment I first really met him and my earliest memory is of him doing conjuring tricks.
He always had time for me and infinite patience, and would spend hours explaining thing to me until I understood. He helped me with my maths homework making it interesting, not boring as it seemed at school.
We were very alike and enjoyed the same hobbies.
My children also adored their grandpop and loved visiting him. He knew how to be with children and how to talk to them

So today I am so very thankful that I had such a loving and kind father
and that I married a man who was equally kind and loving
and hopefully have instilled that in our children to pass on to theirs

It's lovely to read such warm memories about your dad.
My son is so lucky to have a wonderful dad like yours too!

What an awesome tribute! Love this layout.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
