A Day To Celebrate
4 August, 2006
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Today we celebrate the birthday of a great man
He was not a president or statesman by trade
He did not move millions with his words of wisdom
Nor did he have any great claim to fame

He was humble in his achievements
Known to few; admired by many
He was a man of honor
Of humor, of strength

He was a provider, a carpenter
A brainstormer, a teacher of life
He was a troubleshooter, nurturer
A nature lover & star gazer

He could tell a good story and could listen with an open mind
A giver of guidance, understanding and love
He was not celebrity or famous in the least
But for what he was, is worth celebration and feast

And who was this great man I speak of
with such pride in my words
He was a great husband, and father and man
I was very fortunate to have called him my Dad

You don't have to be famous

to have an impact on the world around you. You only need to be yourself and share the gifts you have been given. This was a beautiful tribute, Becky. Thanks for sharing.
