Tell me about your dad, grandfather, brother or son who is everything a father should be. But first, get some inspiration here…
My father is no longer with us but I think about him often. His father was really hard on him and he didn’t have many good memories as a child. But he never transferred that onto me and my brothers. He showed us the kind of love he hoped for as a child. He spent time with us, talked with us, taught us, was concerned for us, trusted us. I wish I could hold his hand one more time and thank him for making my life amazing. I know his wasn’t but I hope his life with us made up for his rough beginnings. Happy Father’s Day, we love you forever Dad. Michelle
My husband Jan (pronounced ‘yon’) is overseas this summer for his job and I am here at home holding down the fort alone. The past few days have been very difficult and I am missing him so much! Maybe I haven’t appreciated enough how blessed I am to be married to a man who has always been so committed to the well-being of our family (we have 4 bio children and 2 from foster care, ages 23 to 7). When one of us is weak, the other one always seems to be strong for our family. I wish he could be here to be strong for me today, as I am not feeling strong. It would be lovely if you could play a song for us, but I would be so very grateful if you could send up a prayer for us on this our anniversary. Thank you, Delilah! Fran
My hero is my dad. He is the one that has made me the kind hearted person I am today. Some of my friends don't understand me when I put on my Facebook that I am my daddy's little girl. But I always tell my dad that he is my hero and that I will always be his little girl no matter how old I get. Angela
It’s just that easy, folks. You can share with the world (well, a lot of people anyway) how much your father or some other special person in your life means to you. My Facebook page, just like my show, is the place to publicly declare your heart and I hope you will take part in that. Listen at night for more Father’s Day dedications taken by phone (888-633-5452), email and Facebook all weekend long!
I’m going to share a couple real-life listener stories this week that made me think how vulnerable life can be…and also how sweet it can be. From many bad situations comes something good. In this letter from Nancy, we’re reminded just how precious life is and how there is beauty in each day…
My husband watches our little granddaughter while our daughter and her husband work. She's been the sweetest, happiest baby ever and is a joy to watch. She had just turned 1 year old and like most babies, everything went into her mouth. Apparently one pill accidentally rolled onto the floor from a high kitchen shelf one day. No one saw her put it in her mouth. But her parents soon picked her up and she went down for her nap…and didn't want to wake up.
They took her to the emergency room where the doctors thought it was probably nothing serious...until she stopped breathing. The baby was revived and we waited anxiously for test results. A life-flight helicopter was called to take her to Children's Hospital. That one pill that accidentally rolled onto the floor almost killed her.
I watched as the daughter I loved lay in the hospital bed holding her little baby she loved, crying as she said over and over again, "Keep breathing baby, please keep breathing." That picture of them will stay in my head forever. I hugged my daughter and reminded her to pray, and that with God's help, little Lexi would pull through this. God gave us a miracle that day as the correct drug was given to reverse what she had swallowed.
Lexi just turned 3 and we were out in the yard playing yesterday and she said to me, "Nana, listen to the birdies in the trees - isn't it all beautiful outside." I thought back to the day when we almost lost her and thought how beautiful she has made all of our lives. Nancy
Sometimes the innocent view of the world is the best view of the world. Stop and smell the roses, listen to nature and appreciate the beauty around you. Take it from a 3-year-old who nearly left this world but is here appreciating the birds singing in the trees and other things we simply disregard on a daily basis. Just a thought.

My boyfriend, Jeff, planned a once-in-a-lifetime family vacation with the goal to ask me to marry him. What he didn’t plan was to end up in the hospital. Jeff and his friend, Dustin, were heading back to the condo our family was staying at when they were approached on the street by two men. They were beaten, robbed and left there on the concrete, unconscious. The police found both of them and they ended up spending three days in the hospital.
On that last day his father brought the video camera into the hospital. How odd, I thought. Jeff said to his friend, "Dustin and I feel really bad about what happened. But there's one thing I want to do, and that's tell Rachel I love her very much, and I would like that part to be forever if she’ll have me." He got down on one knee and pulled out a beautiful ring.
Of course, I said yes! He had asked for my parents’ blessing before the trip, and all this was supposed to involve a sleigh ride (which didn’t happen). We didn’t think we’d spend the night in the ICU! I can’t wait to become Mrs. Soler! And we already have the “in sickness and in health” part down pat. Rachel
Well, it wasn’t the romantic sleigh ride proposal that was intended but somehow it means more…and the wedding means more and her future husband means more…because she certainly won’t take those things for granted. Isn’t it amazing how something good and meaningful can come from a really bad situation? Was there a time in your life where something good came out of something bad? Call me and tell me about it: 888-633-5452. Or email your story to me at D@Delilah.com.
