My Mother wrote the lyrics for this song and gave them to me. Even though the copyright says 2001, I believe it was much earlier than then. We did a lot of collaborating back in the early days of my music compositions. She was my biggest fan. My Dad was all of the things this song says. He was awesome. He could make and fix anything.
A Dad Can Be a Kid’s Best Friend
This song was inspired shortly after my second marriage to the most amazing man I’ve ever known. He was the best friend my daughter had ever known. He was always there for her and her biggest fan. He had patience I had never seen before when it came to helping her with her homework. This love and patience continued as he was this same, consistent Dad as we added four more children to our family.
Ev’ry Day of My Life
1. Ev’ry day of my life, I’ll be thankful for lessons he taught,Thank the Lord for the battles he fought,As he guided me through life’s rough road.Ev’ry day of my life.Ev’ry day of my life, I will honestly try to live likeThe example he set through my life.I will cherish the humbleness shown,Ev’ry day of my life. Father, unselfish in all you do.Giving to others your whole life through.Seeking the joys of Celestial life,Ev’ry, ev’ry day of your life. 2. Ev’ry day of my life, the unselfishness he always showed,As he let others share in his glow,I am sure I will never quite know.Ev’ry day of my life.Ev’ry day of…
My Dad was a cute Grandpa. He really like the little people in his life and he doted on them while they were little. His eyes would twinkle when he was with the grandkids. Hence, this song was born. I can do no wrong in my Grandpa’s eyes.He thinks I am terrific and he always has a prize.He plays with me. He talks with me.He even takes long walks with me.My Grandpa is a very special guy.
