Can you believe it’s nearly Father’s Day?
This is a day we use to celebrate and show appreciation for our fathers (or father figures) and encourage them in being the best dads they can be!
While it’s true that we should express this appreciation year-round, it’s still nice to dedicate a whole day to this special person in our family.
“Anyone can become a father, but it takes someone really special to be a dad,” the saying goes, and we couldn’t agree more. Here are some things we love about dads:
Fun – That amazing quality dads have that lets them be a mountain fit for pint-sized climbers, ferocious tickle monsters, and … all at once. It’s difficult to decide who has more fun — the kids playing with dad, or the partner watching them with pride.
Adored – As a little kid, before you make the groundbreaking discovery that your parents normal human beings, you look at your father as if he en is a superhero. The trick is to see that superhero in him even after you grow up.
Trusted – A dad is someone you can rely on, whether it is to pick you up from school or to keep the crushes you confide in him a secret.
Heroic – Your dad may be an average joe. He may even be out of shape. But when you’re around, he does the best he can to get you to keep looking at him like a hero — and this means acting like one!
Educators – He helps you with everything you need, whether you are faced with a math problem or a sticky situation with friends. If he doesn’t know, he points you in the right direction
Reassuring – A dad is always there to hold your hand when times are tough and confusing, but also when things are going so great it’s overwhelming. He’s there when you cross the street, when you go to your first job interview, and when he walks you down the aisle.
Nothing replaces a great, big “THANK YOU!” a giant hug, but it sure is nice to get a nice, thoughtful gift to go along with those. Here are some suggestions. What will YOU be giving the special father figure in your life this Sunday?
