so to all the Dads out there, hope you were all spoilt today, and to those that never had any family to come and see them, I hope God blessed you abundantly today. God bless. Glynnis

Glynnis, we celebrate Father's Day also in the US - 'You could call Sonora Smart Dodd the "Mother of Father's Day." After all, the holiday, celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, was inspired by her. Dodd's mother died in 1898 while giving birth, leaving her father, William Jackson Smart, to raise Dodd and her five younger brothers (including the newborn baby) on a remote farm near Spokane, Wash. While attending a Mother's Day sermon in 1909, Dodd decided that fathers deserve the same recognition.'
