My father was a hard man to shop for.  When there was something he wanted, he saved his money, then he bought it for himself.  My siblings and I would collectively agonize over what to get him every Christmas or birthday!  Little did we know, the thing he loved best were cards and letters.  He saved them.  All of them.

When we got older, he revealed the secret, and sometimes gave us back one that he had saved for years.  Being "re-carded" was always fun.  What a great look back at the weird stages of my life.  I laughed to see big loopy handwriting with hearts dotting the i's and j's.  I cringed at the messages from the poverty years.  My apologetic notes scrawled across the cards show just how little I understood parenthood.  It never occurred to me that he would save a card!  He even kept the hand made ones from my grade school days.

Now, as I sit in my office, surrounded by the sweet projects and notes that my sons have created for me - I get it.  I cherish the things made with their hands.  I value the thoughts from their minds.  When they tell me what they would buy for me if they had a lot of money, I laugh.  They don't understand that they are my treasure.

This year, for Father's Day, maybe your Father or Husband would like something to save, too.  Can I suggest one of the beautiful keepsake poems available at "Because I Tried It"?  There are many to choose from, and they can be personalized, too.

Here is a generic example:

Daddy Father's Day Poem

Isn't that sweet?  Obviously, the actual print is full sized, and suitable for framing.  There are so many different types of poems available, and they are meant to be personalized with your own names.  I think that every family could find something to suit their needs.  Here's are the Father choices:
A Father Just Like You
A Second Dad
A Soldier's Son
Dad's Place
Dear Mom and Dad
I Love You Dad
My Very Special Parents
Our Father
Thoughts Of You Dad
To Dad On Father's Day
To Dad With Love
To Daddy With Love
To Father With Love
To My Dad
Welcome to the Family Stepfather
When Parents Become Friends
There are many other categories available, too.  You can find the perfect printable for almost any occasion, and some beautiful 'just because" selections are available.

Priced at only $2.00, these are extremely affordable.  They cost less than the average greeting card! Best of all, the money from each purchase is donated to help children in need.  Not just a portion, but all of it.  This sweet blogging mom is truly dedicated to helping kids, and I am a huge fan of people who make the world a better place.  She has already provided help to 19 children in need since the start of 2012.

Visit Because I Tried It on the web at  She also has a Facebook fan page, and a Twitter Account so that you can like or follow the blog with social media.

To order your own keepsake, visit the website, personalize the printable that you would like, order it, and it will arrive to you by email.  Once you have the file you can print it on special paper or email it if your loved one is far away.
