What does a father post on Father’s day? In the past I have written advice on how to be a good father, which should have been titled: Things I Wish I had Done. I have also given advice on how children should honor their dad on this special day. Those posts were written as hints to my own children. This year I want to do something different.
I want to say thank you to my own two daughters who endured my bumbling attempts to be a good dad. I often tell young parents that in spite of their best efforts, it is likely that one day their children will be sitting in the office of a pastor, counselor or therapist, discussing the role you played in messing up their lives.
Looking back, I know I made some mistakes but I am so thankful.
- My girls grew to be beautiful young women who love me and allow me to be a part of their lives.
- They have given me six wonderful grandchildren and permit me to spend time messing up their lives as well.
- They love God and have taught their children that He is the greatest Father of all.
Thank you, Taryn and Traci. I am so grateful for the privilege of being your dad. I love you!
That’s so sweet!!!
Beautiful ….. 🙂
Love this….and Traci, nice umbrella. 🙂
Here are some great Father’s Day gift ideas.. any would make a “perfect gift”:
1. A “Dad” picture frame and put a picture of you and him in it. I gave this to my dad once and he loved it!
2. Anything related to the foodies — cakes,chocolates baskets — all are popular Father’s Day gifts.
3. A nice leather wallet or stainless steel watch. These are items that Dads use everyday, but never seem to buy new for themselves.
