It’s a simple word isn’t it? Dad. So short and simple a word that deceptively disguises the significance of it. And yet the older we get and the more we navigate life’s ebbs and flows, the more we should appreciate just how crucial fathers and father figures are in our society.
On Father’s Day today, we celebrate those that stuck by us when we needed it the most, when we wanted it but did not deserve it, those who kept teaching us to dare even when the odds were stacked against us. It is easy for us today to forget what our fathers and father figures did for us (and continue to do for us) while we chase our dreams and get busier every day. Whether it’s teaching us how to tie our laces or telling us to keep our chin up after losing in little league, it’s those moments that will always remain priceless.
Hopefully today we can pause, reflect and if we can, send a lovely message to or spend time with our fathers and remind them how much they mean to us. Thank you for helping us get to where we are today.
Here’s to you, Dads.
