Hope that all the fathers had a very Happy Father’s Day yesterday!
I know that I would not be the person that I am today if it were not for my father.
When I was growing up, he would be the guy who would love to go to Wendy’s at 8PM for a late night snack, usually fries and shakes! As I grew older, he taught me a lot about life lessons and how to be a good person. I think the best advice he gave me was when you are in a bind, go back to basics. It sounds simple, but sometimes we forget this. Another life lesson that I will never forget is “Don’t tell me, show me”. Glenn Rothman (Hearts on Fire’s Found and CEO) uses this quote as well for his personal and professional life. My father never liked me telling him what I would do, or what my plans were- he was the type of person who wanted to see results.
My father always did his best to attend every practice/ recital/ performance that I ever had growing up. He would be the one who would pick me up from the nurse’s office when I was not feeling my best, make jook, and get whatever medication was needed to get me to my 100%. Perhaps 90% was that he wanted me to feel better right away so I could help with the family business but I know 10% was that he cared 🙂
Each day I am thankful that my father has given so much to me.
Fathers are like superman with an invisible cape. We love you!
Thank you fathers for all that you do! Congratulations to all the new dads out there!
When I asked my boyfriend’s dad, what is the most rewarding thing about being a father, he said “ Watching your kids grow up”. When I asked him what is the most challenging thing about raising your kids- he answered “the same thing,”.
