Cookies and Dads


(some homemade cookies and this poem)

Cookies and Dads are both so much alike...
After the first taste you can't stop at one bite.

They're both irresistible and a treat that's second-to-none,
When the jar is full and Dad's at home, it's time for family fun.

Cookies are rough around the edges, with a middle so tender...
Dad's are like that, too -- well-rounded, in all their splendor.

Cookies are always better when they're lovingly home-made,
Just as Dads create home-made memories that the mind will never fade.

Cookies warm an empty stomach, while Dads warm a troubled heart,
So, thank goodness for them both and the meaning they impart!

Happy Father's Day!
