Momma Pop Told Me: It's not the gift, but the thought that counts.

I don't brag often, but my dad's kinda awesome.

Yea, I know, the blog's called 'Momma Told Me,' because, let's face it, as a stay at home mother she told me A LOT. One thing Momma didn't say a lot was 'I love you.' Touchy feely just wasn't her style and expressing emotions has always seemed hard for her. Sure, she gave me a world of advice, real, practical, life valuable advice. I wouldn't have half the head on my shoulders if it wasn't for Momma. But Pop, well, I don't think a day went by, growing up, where he didn't tell me he loved me. Saying words, in the end, are just words, but to this very day my father calls me up out of the blue, shoots me a text, and even a chat online to tell me that he loves me. In my opinion, people don't say that enough.

My father was always the 'fun parent,' you know the type. "Wait till your father get's home," was said plenty in my household but never really proved effective. You see, my dad worked 5 days a week and often 10 hour days; he still works hard at his profession today. And when he had the chance to spend time with me, his daughter, it was one of the highlights of his week. How do I know that? Just look at the photos, you can see the love.
Growing up I always took it for granted. When my parents got divorced I remained with my dad, but I was in the midst of those awkward teenage years. After graduation we drifted apart- I moved across country and distanced myself from the entire family. It wasn't an angsty sort of thing I was simply young and in love, too involved in my own little bubble of a world to pay mind to anyone else. And when the bubble popped and my young adult world came crashing down, my father welcomed me back with no questions asked.

Our adult relationship is not the magical chocolate sundae, late night movies, fairytale tea parties of my childhood, but a whole new, even more valuable bond I could have never envisioned. My father has never judged me, never favored me, and I do not doubt, never stopped loving me for a single second. He is the standard for all men in my life, and a very formidable one at that. And I consider myself ever so lucky, for not every woman has such a figure in their lives.
Cabela's Father's Day Gift Guide 2015
Father's Day is Sunday June 21st this year, and every June I am reminded to reflect upon many great father figures in my family as both my father and his father were also born in this month! Now, some daughters might get a little lazy and try to bundle their gifts all into one. Usually my dad's birthday is the week immediately preceding Father's Day, but this year it falls a little later in the month. The little cricket on my shoulder's telling me my dad deserves not one, but two awesome gifts this year, and Cabela's is kicking off the perfect sale just in time. Whether your dad is a hunter, master fisherman, boat captain, avid camper, or Grill Master Cabela's has chosen the hottest gifts and broken them into easy to shop categories.
Cabela's Father's Day Gift Guide 2015
The Cabela's Father's Day Gift Guide highlights some amazing Father's Day deals on everything from rugged outdoor workwear to tactical appliances and outdoor sporting supplies. Since my own father has recently taken an interest in trail-seeking and bike riding with his steady lady friend I've been keeping an eye out for some outdoor gear that will make his new adventures more comfortable no matter the terrain. Cabela's Gifts For The Camper category features some promising gifts such as Merrel's Reflex Low Hikers boots and Cabela's XPG 10-Liter Backpack.

Without a doubt my dad would love to show this off in his backyard!

What Daughter Says: While I'm sure dad's advice came after receiving a melted macaroni art pencil holder, I disagree. Awesome gifts are awesome and awesome dads deserve awesome gifts!
