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.
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
