Happy Fathers Day to all the amazing dads out there! My husband is such an amazing father, and a fantastic role model for our son. I just couldn’t imagine any other person being the father to our children.
Also a very happy Fathers Day to my Dad (father and step father to four kids, and grandfather and step grandfather to six kids!), as well as my Step Dad (who loves me and my son like his own), and my grandfather (who basically raised me, and whose example in hard work and work ethic has resinated with me throughout my professional career). All three are amazing men in their own right who have had an impact on me and my own little family in profound ways.
I’m not personally a huge fan of what I call “Hallmark Holidays”, holidays built up by card companies to drive sales. Mothers Day and Fathers Day could technically be lumped into that group, but I hold them separately, because Mom’s and Dad’s are the heartbeat of so many of our households, they love us and raise us, and teach us and scold us, they make mistakes and have moments of perfection, and have such a profound affect on our lives in so many ways (good and bad, it’s what shapes us).
So, happy Fathers Day to all you amazing Dads out there, especially to the ones in my life. 🙂
