Thanks for being a dad


One of the easiest things in the world is becoming a father but it is one of the hardest things to be a good one. I have five children and seven grandchildren and every day I am thankful for their mothers and grandmothers for being there to guide them every day. It is often more easy to look back at our own past to properly reflect on the people who were the fathers in our own life and the influences they had on us to make us the people we are today.

I know that I speak for many of the fathers by saying that we sometimes just shake our heads and marvel at how things turned out in a positive way. Whether you believe in God or not you must accept the fact that there is some positive energy force at work to help make things happen the way that they happen in the lives of our children.

Fathers, I congratulate you on your accomplishment whether it was on purpose or it just happened. Thanks for being a dad.
