Hug a Father – Let Them Know They Are Appreciated

Hug a Father – Let Them Know They Are Appreciated

Throughout my life my Dad was a very special man, not just to our family but so many.  The stories friends would tell me later in life about how my Dad made them feel part of our family when they felt lost and alone in their own family.

My Dad allowed us all to dream, supporting us to go after our goals, never doubting our capabilities.

Dad was quick with a smile and a joke.

He was always there to help a friend or stranger.

He cared for my Mother with dementia and lead by example.

Dad had strong family values to the end.

I so miss my Father, but yet the lessons he taught through kindness will forever be with me.

May ever child have a man like my Father in their life.

We must all respect and know deep in our hearts being a Father just like being a Mother; isn’t just a biological thing.

Being a Father is about being a good person in heart and soul.

We all need good Father role models at all ages and stages of life.

So with great love and deep appreciation I say,

“Happy Father’s Day” to all the wonderful men out there.
