I’d like to just wish all the fathers out here a very happy father’s day!! I hope you know how important your job is!
I’m so blessed to have a great Daddy who– although we don’t always see eye to eye– has taught me some amazing things and who I love to spend time with. I can’t wait for him to come over today for dinner and presents 🙂
I’m also extra blessed to still have one of my grandfathers in my life– my Deda– who, at 92 years old is still an amazing, open-minded, caring individual. I am enthralled with him (despite the scare we had having to bring him to the hospital last night! He’s ok though– thank God!– and back home and also coming for dinner tomorrow).
I’m ecstatic to have these two who have helped to shape my life. I have received so much help and encouragement over the years from both of them, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Being a father (or grandfather, or godfather, or uncle, or just a fatherly-figure) is such an amazing role. I hope you are all spoiled today with love and time and affection and gratefulness!
Happy Father’s Day!
So forgive my brief absence– last week of classes and I am finishing my honors thesis. I am currently sitting at 28 pages with a 30 page minimum. I have yet to completely make my point…. I’m thinking 35 pages should do it.
That said, I did want to take a brief moment and thank all the Mothers out there who may be reading.
I truly believe that Motherhood is the most creative job. Ever.
When I was little, I remember wanting to do and be everything. I remember making a list of all the vocations I would like. Doctor. Teacher. Cook. The list was on construction paper and written in marker. It filled the entire page– with two columns of messy-handwriting vocations in somewhat small writing. I must have been around first grade-aged.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that I didn’t really want to be all those things as jobs. But I wanted to do them all. And some I have gotten to get a taste of already. But I realize that there is one vocation in which a person gets to do all of these things– and that is a parent. I would specify Moms, but I know there’s a lot of amazing hands-on Dads out there too– and this blog fits you just as well so I won’t exclude you. There are too many parents out there being both Mommy and Daddy nowadays for me to specify– even on a holiday like today.
So Happy Mother’s Day to all the rockin’ moms out there– and you Daddys who do double-duty too! The creativity you use– and instill in your children– is awe-inspiring.
