Pater Familias

You stand like a sentinel
Protective without being dominating

Authoritative without being autocratic

Commanding without being imposing

You nourished us not only with physical sustenance
But also provided food for the soul;
Clothed us not only with decent garments
But also with proper values;
Sheltered us not only from the harsh elements
But also from the storms of life;
Raised us not only with respect for oneself
But also for others and everything around us

You continue to stand like a sentinel
Watching over us with loving and understanding eyes
Guiding, ready to lend a hand
As we fight our own battles

Thank you father, for supporting us in every way possible
And for providing us with a shoulder to lean on
When we are weary and in need of a rest
From our respective journeys called life

Happy Father’s Day to my father and brothers, father and brothers-in-law, to our relatives and friends who continue to extend their love and assistance to their families. This is for all of you. And to our Father up there, thank you for your bottomless love and forgiveness of our trespasses.

in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something comρletelу unique.
P.S My apologies for being оff-topic but I hаd to аsk!
