NBC12 VIEWPOINT: It's Great Being a Father

By: Kym Grinnage email

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".
