Father's Day Comes Again

"Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a Dad." -- Anne Geddes

There are many men in the world who truly live the role of a "Dad" and so many others who are truly undeserving of any such title. Just because half of your DNA helped make a new person in the world doesn't make you a Dad, it makes you a biological father. A man may have no biological connection to a child but still has a right to be a Dad.

"One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters." -- George Herbert

A Dad is a man who's there for you, cherishes you, takes the time to nurture, teach and protect you and becomes a good role model for his children.

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." -- Clarence Budington Kelland

Any man who takes no time for his children and only works is merely using it as an excuse for his lack of experience. A man becomes greater when he becomes a good father...a father any child would be proud to call "Dad". A good father knows where his priorities lie.

"A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty." -- Unknown

"A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season". -- Unknown 

I know I used a lot of quotes in this post. They pretty much say the same thing. If you have a father to proudly call "Dad", then cherish him and appreciate him. Treat him well this Father's Day.

To all the deserving Dads in the world, I wish you all a very happy Father's Day!
