I could not let Father's Day go by without telling you all about two special dads that are in my life.
The first one is my dad. My dad is one of the most hardworking, honest, and generous people I know. He is a coal miner which is a very dangerous and hard job to perform. He never complains about working and has always done his best. We keep telling him it is time to retire, but he always finds a reason to work a little longer.
Without my dad, I would not have any of what I have. He provided everything for me. We always had plenty to eat, nice things, and a warm and inviting house to live in. He made sure that all of his children got a college education making so many sacrifices to make it happen.
I am so proud and honored to have him as my dad.
The second dad in my life is Jeff's dad.
Jeff's dad has always treated me so well and thinks of me as one of his kids. He always tries to do things to show how much he appreciates me. Whenever we need him, he is there. He has fixed many things for us, and he is always happy to do it. I feel very blessed to have him in my life.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More! I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will come back as often as you can. I hope that you can spend some time with your father this weekend, and i hope that you have many wonderful memories of him.

Where Did I Get My Door Box?
I receive so many comments asking me where I got my door box. So I thought I would answer the question here in my sidebar. I got my door box at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. The lady who makes the door boxes is Tracie Hamler. She and her husband make them. They are wonderful door boxes and you will be very pleased with the quality. You can visit Tracie's website by clicking the picture of my door box.
