There are a lot of dudes out there who are fathers, but it takes a special guy to be a dad. This Sunday is Father's Day... a day set aside to pay tribute and celebrate our hard working dads... a day to honor and remember those dads who now can only live on in our hearts and memories.
I was one of the lucky ones who had a dad that cared about his kids and wanted to mold them into successful human beings. My brothers and I were loved and we knew it. I would be lying if I said I haven't been dreading this weekend for the last few days. I miss my dad very much and I feel a bit jilted to have to spend this first holiday without mine. I know I'm not the first, nor will I be the last child to grieve their parent, but while it's happening to you... it can be so unbearable at times.
I decided to share with you, the wonderful man who was my provider... my teacher... my hero... my dad. He was not a perfect man, but he always did his best. He was there for anyone who needed him, but his family always came first. He loved a good joke and was a friend to all. He will be missed by many.
I feel like I've been very blessed. So, if your a dad... love your kids. They have so much to gain from it... and so do you.
Have a nice weekend everyone and... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
