It's been a blessing and I'm so appreciative that God has blessed me with the privilege of having a good father figure in my life."
"I am so thankful that my father as always protected, provided and most importantly loves me unconditional. Also, he knows me the best and spoiled me with love. I been so blessed and lucky to have not only a Daddy but a Great father that sacrifices his time and effort into my dreams and aspirations. I'm forever grateful to have him in my life and I know I owe him a million for all his love one day."

Daddy's Little Girl,

Wenny aka Rabbit

Father of the Day: Wayne Greene

With Father's Day only a few days away, I'm glad to salute another awesome dad by the name of Wayne Greene! Today we salute him for all that he has done for his "baby" Crystal. Check out a few words Crystal had to say about her Daddy below:

 "WOW!! Words can’t describe how I absolutely adore my father. He encourages me with his smile and the glow of his face, he is my biggest cheerleader and only wants the absolute best for me. I remember when I graduated from college and walked across the stage, I could hear him say “that’s my baby right there” which made my heart melt because I knew he was proud of me (the 1st kid & grand kid with a degree)."

"He’s not just my father but a man of Christ who I turn to when making major decisions in my life because I know his guidance will lead me in the right direction. Happy Father’s Day Daddy!!!!"

Special thanks to Crystal for this post! You have an amazing dad and I'm glad to hear he's still a major part of your life. We want to wish a very Happy Father's Day to Wayne Greene!!

Father of the Day: Everette Evans

Our Second Father of the Day is Everette Evans. Get to know the very proud father of princess Imani & check out what his friend has to say about him below: 

"Blessed with natural beauty, talent, and so much personality you would think this little princess has it all… and she does! BUT, not being limited to only those features, the most important thing Imani has in her life is the involvement of her wonderful, supportive father by the name of Everette Evans. Through-out the entire time I’ve known Everette as a father I’ve seen nothing but positive features. He defiantly invests a lot of quality time and energy into raising this growing young lady. Not only does he take care of “Mani”s financial and emotional needs but he also keeps her involved in activities such as having her participate in local “Kiddie Kat-walk” model call. Overall, Everette is an prime example of an amazing father figure. He is an active father that puts his only child first!.....xo, Billie Jean"

How cute are these two?! Daddy's little girl indeed. Special Thanks to "Billie Jean" for this Father of the Day submission. We want to wish Everette a very Happy Father's Day & many more!

"There is no one in this world like my daddy, he is truly what I call “one of a kind” and I couldn’t be without his sly charm and his undeniable out of this world humor!" 

"His sense of style (so GQ) is still amazing to me at 57 years of age and most importantly my daddy is a God fearing man, a man that is in love with God …what could get more better than that!" 

"He is my right hand man and I thank God for him! He is a father of 8, a grandfather of 11, and a great-grandfather of 1 … he’s the glue that holds us together …xo!"

Special Thanks to Ashlee! We wish Mr. Wade Montgomery a Happy Father's Day and many more!!
