Fathers Day is this Sunday, and just like moms, dads deserve our gratitude.
Dads inspire us to be curious about the world and look farther than our front door.
They teach us how to adventure, even if it’s not in the way they intended.
They teach us the difference between right and wrong, and how to have the strength to fight for what you believe in.
Some are in charge, leading more than just their family, though they treat everyone with love.
Some are working men, who focus on their family with all their heart.
There are dads who decide they don’t want to be dads, they leave their families, leave their children, and if they return, it’s half-hearted and disingenuous.
But when that happens, when a father can no longer be the father, there is usually someone else who is willing to do more than anyone asked of them, and raise the family that isn’t his to raise. These men are the ones who save the world, by saving one child.
Even if they aren’t always the best at it, at least they tried.
So take a moment today to remember all the things your dad has done for you. And remember, your dad isn’t necessarily your father.
Love you Dad, hope you have a good Father’s Day.
