This Week...Fathers

 

To all of the fathers, step-fathers, and father-influencers, I wish you a Happy Father’s Day.

This is the price you pay for having a great father. You get the wonder, the joy, the tender moments - and you get the tears at the end, too. Harlan Coben

 

 

 

 

 

It always seems to me that fathers get short shrift when it comes to that one day set aside to honor them. Mothers are taken out for a special meal, they are handed roses or some other flower when they walk into a restaurant and are smothered with well-deserved love from her whole family.

The surprising thing about fatherhood was finding my inner mush. Now I want to share it with the world. Christopher Meloni


Fathers, on the other hand, may end up sweating over the grill cooking burgers for the family when they’d be just as happy watching the US Open or baseball inside their air-conditioned home.

Every father should remember one day his son will follow his example, not his advice. Charles Kettering

 

 

Father figures are just as important in the lives of our children, though, as our loving mothers. They can show us a different type of love from what our mothers show us.

 

houston

 

I know that I could do no wrong in the eyes of my father...it’s the same with all daughters.

 

If you are lucky enough to have your father still with you, I hope that you are able to spend a special day with him.

 

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me  Jim Valvano



Thank you, fathers, step-fathers, uncles, grandfathers, and father-influencers for stepping up and setting the example that all children need.

Happy Father’s Day

Kathy One thing for sure the boys in my family did follow in my father's footsteps in many ways. Too bad it wasn't good ones.

I love this one, and yes dads do deserve the same celebration and moms.  I'm already thinking so much about dad as it's the Father's Day without him. Damn year of firsts.

Hi Kathy Streib - I am taking my husband and son out to L'Auberge de Sedona for a chef's delight brunch right next to the creek.  I know that the US Open will also fit into their plans after brunch! Maybe Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches for an evening snack!  This is a favorite of both. It should be a fun day.

Hi Kathy,
Like others, I love the Kettering quote. I think that's true with children in general. They tend to learn more by example than sage advice, don't they?  Although my Dad died young, he had a profound effect on me and I'd like to think his kind spirit lives on through my brother and me.... although I know I stumble at times.

Barbara Todaro mine as well. 

Wayne Martin I live with one just like you!!!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson I think that having that "angel" sitting on our shoulders, our mothers and fathers, is a reflection of the impact they had on our lives.
