Today is Father’s Day and we would like to dedicate this post to all the wonderful fathers, father figures, and male mentors out there who have touched the lives of people out there: be it your own kids, others’ kids, your family, people you’ve mentored, people you’ve coached, and the world at large. Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being you.
We appreciate your existence and the often times silent but impactful role you have played in our lives.
This quote is so incredibly true: We never know the love of a parent until we become parents ourselves.
When you are a teenager and you get to hear from your parents say you wait until you have children. And you laugh it off as if you will never be in their shoes but looking back you wonder how did they manage to go through every stress you and your siblings have put them through and it does make your heart ache a bit.
Being a Dad is a job in an ideal world all you need is to spend even more time with your children. It's not that often that you get to spend a long period of time with children so it is important to make the most of all opportunities.
Every father is different, and in the beautiful time that we are living right now the men in our lives are no longer just the one’s to work the long hours, fix things around the house and carry the heavy shopping. They are doing school drop-offs, they are staying home with the children when they are sick, they are helping with or doing the cooking and cleaning, and many fathers are the full-time care-takers of their children due to the wonderful world.
So in honour of all fathers, whether they are at home with the children, are working long hours out of the house or anything in between, We want to say thank you !
Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads who try every day to raise your children in the right way.
Congratulations to all the proud dads out there!
