but my Daddy will always be my King."
Even though I have found my Prince Charming, here is a picture of my Daddy and me. He was my King.
My Dad died over 15 years ago, and I think of him every day, and my Mother says as long as I am alive, my Dad lives on. He made me a strong independent woman long before women's lib was in.
So, on his Father's Day, a little history of the day. On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” In 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States
"Struggling retailers and advertisers redoubled their efforts to make Father’s Day a “second Christmas” for men, promoting goods such as neckties, hats, socks, pipes and tobacco, golf clubs and other sporting goods, and greeting cards." When World War II began, advertisers began to argue that celebrating Father’s Day was a way to honor American troops and support the war effort. By the end of the war, Father’s Day may not have been a federal holiday, but it was a national institution.
In 1972, in the middle of a hard-fought presidential re-election campaign, Richard Nixon signed a proclamation making Father’s Day a federal holiday at last.
Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts, but that pales compared to nearly $21 billion spent on Mothers!
No one in the world can love a girl more than her father."
