Notre Dame's Main Building in Summer!


A Happy Father's Day from Notre Dame!


I stopped by the Grotto last night to say a prayer and light a candle for my Dad -- James Arthur Small -- and frankly for all of the DADS out there...

Every year on this day -- I find a way to post this poem from Nelle A. Williams on my blog.  Years ago, I had this framed and put up on the bedroom walls of my two boys; Jimmy and Brady...
 
YOUR FAMILY NAME

You got it from your father
It was all he had to give
So it's yours to use and cherish
For as long as you may live

If you lost the watch he gave you
It can always be replaced;
But a black mark on your name
Can never be erased

It was clean the day you took it
And a worthy name to bear
When he got it from his father
There was no dishonor there

So make sure you guard it wisely
After all is said and done
You'll be glad the name is spotless
When you give it to your son

 

Dad, I hope I've taken good care of your name. 

 

I LOVE YOU, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
