Today is a special day for the special men in our lives; whether it’s your real dad, a step-dad, or maybe a grandfather or uncle who raised you, this is the day when we celebrate our dads.
What makes a great dad?
A dad’s job is never-ending but here are just a few characteristics of great dads:
He listens when you need advice or just a shoulder to cry on;
He shares his wisdom when you need it, even if you don’t want it at the time;
He never hesitates to show how proud he is of you and your accomplishments;
He can make you smile even as you shed the last of your tears;
He offers relief when you’re worried; and
He comes to your aid when things go wrong.
A dad is someone who will be there for you, always, and especially when you’re in need, for no other reason than because you need him. And, of course, because he loves you unconditionally.
There are many words we can use to describe our dads. A great dad is, among so many other things:
D – Devoted
A – Affectionate
D – Dependable
What three words would you use to describe your dad?
However you would describe your dad, I hope you get to enjoy this day with him in order to express what he means to you and, if you are a dad yourself, I hope your day is also spent with your own children as they express what you mean to them.
Happy Father’s Day!
