Challenge # 24 - Anything Goes or TWIST "Someone Special" A Male

Hello, Crafty Peeples!   Happy Father's Day!

 I could not resist this image of Will Smith and his son, Jaden, in a scene from the best single dad movie ever, "The Pursuit of Happyness!"  The Champ was another great film that chronicled the plight of a single dad struggling to keep custody of his son.  Very  little attention is given to all those wonderful single dads out there who must overcome the same obstacles as single moms: limited time, limited resources, and limited support systems, but who still manage to navigate those turbulent waters and succeed in rearing bright, independent, well-loved and balanced children. 
 I think they deserve a standing ovation.

Once again, we were blessed with another week of fabulous challenge entries and some really nice comments.  You make it more difficult week by week to choose just one winner!  We appreciate YOU!
