Happy Fadda's Day

As it would be said from my toddlers little language.  :)  Here is a blessing to all of the GOOD fathers out there.  The world needs more men like you.  In your own unique way, you are improving our children and therefore our future, one child at a time.  Although I personally didn't have a good father, I can imagine what a good one would be like and I am dedicating my post today to all those rockstar dads.  Your children and wives appreciate all that you do and love you dearly.

Thank you for your kind and selfless devotion to your families, through the best of times and the worst.

Thank you for working late at the job you can't stand because your family depends on you for the income.

Thank you for encouraging your children to do the things that are unknown and maybe a little scary, because you know it will empower them having conquered their fears.

Thank you for having the much needed calming presence in the face of fear when someone has been hurt, assuring that everything is going to be ok.

Thank you for being there to pick up the pieces when the world breaks our heart.

Thank you for showing us how to play ball, spin a hoola hoop, draw with chalk on the sidewalk, ride our bike and how to grill the perfect burger.

Thank you for being the sound mind and empathetic ear when our mothers don't understand us.  

Thank you for being you, and being in our lives as the father you are.

My best wishes for all of you excellent fathers out there.  May your children bask in the light you project, and grow to be the wonderful human beings you raised them to be.
