I think we need to consider a name change for this day. The old adage (not that old I think) is any man can be a father, it takes someone special to be a Dad. Fathers bring children into the world, Dads raise them. Fathers provide for their children, Dads are more involved. Dads are connected to their kids in a way that cannot be understood completely, unless you are a Dad.
A wise friend of mine had this to say:
There is no place higher than on Dad’s shoulders. Dad – a son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love. A Dad is someone you never outgrow your need for.
A Dad is someone to look up to no matter how tall you’ve grown. A Dad is your biggest fan, even when you strike out. Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever. A Dad is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.
A Dad is someone who encourages you, protects you, picks you up when you’re down, gives you advice, guides you when you’re lost, but most of all… always loves you unconditionally !
A Dad is always a Superhero in everyone’s life. Nobody can take place of Dad.
I will add to this bit. A Dad is the guy who picks you up, dusts you off, then throws you back into the fray. Dad is the fire that tempers a man’s soul. A Dad’s wisdom is the steel that anchors a man’s heart.
Happy Father’s Day to all you … Wait a sec…
HAPPY DAD’S DAY!!!!
I love you Dad.
