Happy Father's Day + Thoughts On Fatherhood

Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there in the world. First to my husband whose passion, love and devotion as a father inspires and challenges me. To my father whose devotion, commitment and prayers for his children linger in our hearts and give a picture of the responsibility that comes with fatherhood.

To every father out there who is working hard to provide for his family, committed to being there for his children and carving out that time to know and be part of his children's life. You are appreciated.
Here are my thoughts on the importance of a father in the life of his children.

- Fathers give children a picture of good role models to look up to. So are you a good or bad role model to your child?
- Fathers provide that protective shield and secure environment in which children can grow up feeling safe.
- Fathers show children what leadership is through how they lead in their homes.
- Fathers who are present in the lives of their children create bonds and memories that last for a lifetime.

- Fathers who are committed to being there to guide and teach their children, imprint values that live forever.
- Fathers who work hard and provide for their families mirror the responsibility of fatherhood to their children.
- Fathers provide protection, guidance, security, stability, love, hope, courage and vision in the lives of their children.  "I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection". – Sigmund Freud

Be a worthy father whose children will never forget the impact you made in their lives. Happy Father's Day.
