Happy Father's Day!!!
The firm hand and gentle, steadfast guidance of a father is being celebrated today. YES, it is a "Hallmark" holiday, but I for one am grateful for the enduring love and contribution my father has given me.
He remains the firm and gentle, steadfast, guiding hand he has always been despite the fact that I am 41 years old. He steers the young men in the family as well, and he is a role model for my son.
The years have worn us all, but he remains the leader and the provider. His wisdom and grace under fire have nurtured us. His gruffness has strengthened thin skin, and has roughened lazy spirits.
Fathers are treasures too. So to ALL the papas out there ~ "Healthier, Happier, You!!!!" salutes you today!
