Celebrating Fathers & Honoring The Heroes In Our Lives On Father’s Day

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty 179530


Father's Day is a special day to honor and celebrate the incredible fathers and father figures who have shaped our lives with their unwavering love, guidance, and support.


Today, on Father's Day, let's show love and gratitude for our fathers... be they biological fathers,  step-fathers, spiritual fathers, fathers-in-law, fathers-to-be,  grandfathers, godfathers, father figures.


A father's love is always special and unlike any other. As Antoine-François Prévost said: "the heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature."

Dad jokes crack me up and some of them are funny just because they are absolutely not funny at all, haha.

Nina Hollander, Broker - I hope your husband is doing well and that his children will always honor him whether it's Father's Day or any day.

I really liked your selection of good quotes. My favorite ones are by Billy Graham and Antoine-Francois Prevost. We should all remember "the heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature." For I know, the father who uses his hands to lend a hand, is capable of fixing those broken material and/or manufactured pieces or the pieces of his families heart are truly treasures on earth.

Patricia Feager, ABR,CRS,GRI,MRP good morning, Patricia. Well, Chris does get Father's Day cards each year... how much "honoring" there is in that regard is not something I can answer!

The first time I saw this quote, it was embroidered and framed on a wall in the doctor's office. I always remembered it:

"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Dad."

My dad's been gone 18 years but he made an indelible mark on my heart. I wish I could talk to him one more time to tell him how much he is loved.

Jun 18, 2024 07:43 AM
Nina Hollander, Broker

Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty hi Pat... I suspect that is a universal wish for either parent after they die.

Ginny Gorman thanks, Ginny. Fatherhood is not something to be taken lightly and children who have wonderful fathers prosper as adults in a way that those without cannot.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker,  this was certainly a wonderful post to Honor all fathers. I especially loved reading your quotes, and Rev. Billy Graham was one of my favorites. I have often heard that being born a male is a chance, but being a man is a Choice that comes with responsibility to be the Spiritual Leader of the family.

Jerry Newman thank you, Jerry. And I love your words about being a man being a choice. So true!
