Although Father's Day comes just one time per year, I truly
have gratitude in my heart everyday for being a father. When I look around and
see what men do for their children every day with gratitude and love, it reminds
me of the gift of fatherhood.
Many of us are good dads because we had good dads in our
lives and some of us are good dads because we didn't have good fathers in our
lives. The one thing about fatherhood is that it never gets old, it only gets
better and like a good book; you want it to last forever.
Unfortunately, some of us will not be able to personally say
Happy Father's Day to our dads who have transitioned on to the next life. And
for many of us, in including me, 2014 marks the first year that we will not be
able to make that call or visit to let our fathers know how special they have
been to us or to simply say thank you.
So for all of us who may be missing our fathers this year,
Happy Father's Day and a special "Happy Father's Day to YOU Daddy".
