It is June! A month for Father’s and…mother’s and sisters in my case. (My mother and sister both have birthdays in June).
June dedicates one of it’s 30 days, to Father’s. So, on this 1st day of June, I have started thinking about how lucky my kids are to have such a great dad. Someone who works hard at providing for his family and making his children feel loved and special.
It was this father who went to the store to buy 4 fishing poles, tackle, live bait , etc. when his son asked him to go fishing. (He even bought their mommy a pink fishing pole :)) He didn’t have any real fishing experience, or know-how , but knew that it was a memory he couldn’t resist from making.
So, we’ve gone fishing as a family for the last few weekends. We don’t sit out there too long–just a couple hours, because we do have a 3 year old :). We have not caught a single fish. But, that’s okay–that isn’t what it is about. Daddy keeps taking the kids fishing, and I keep packing a picnic lunch–and we keep on having family time. One day we will catch a fish– and the kids will be excited. But, their dad doesn’t need to catch a fish in order to be their hero…he already is.
It was this, that inspired my Father’s Day Card from the kids to their daddy.
