The Role of a Father
Just a quick post today in honor of all the important fathers in my life…
To me, a father is someone you can trust, can always count on, someone that you look up to, learn from, and want to be just like him. A true role model, especially for little boys, but really for anyone who is lucky enough to be around them.
I was lucky enough to start my life with a Dad who was all of these things for me, and more. And now I have a wonderful father-in-law that I look up to and who helped to raise a caring, hard-working son that I fell in love with. And that son is now a father himself and I love watching our three boys follow him around and imitate him and want to be just like him when they grow up. And my little brother has grown into a man and is now helping to raise two amazing boys of his own as well. I am surrounded by good men in my life…old and young, tall and small.
Boys love their fathers and are always watching, trying to figure out what it takes to be a good man. This is not an easy job to be a father and a role model and I will never take it – or them – for granted.
To all the Fathers in my life and to Fathers everywhere – Thank You and Happy Father’s Day!!
