Father’s Day

Mom, Dad and Aunt Gen

On this and every Father’s Day since the passing of my beloved dad…. I reflect on how fortunate I have been to have  had an exceptional dad. In December it will be two years since he went home and there is not one day that have passed that I have not thought about him. As I said earlier he was exceptional dad and a phenomenal human being.

Even though I am not a Father, I salute the Great Dads out there. I asked myself who makes a good dad? If we use our heavenly father as an example we all fall short but we can try to emulate his characteristics.

Oh Father in heaven is

1. Loving

2. Compassionate

3. Understanding

4. Forgives

5. Heals

6. Giving

7. Caring

8. Accepts

9. Righteous

10.Gracious

11.Kind

Just to name a few. (if I missed any please post)

As I look back my dad left a great legacy where he tried and achieved all of these characteristics. This is why I KNOW that I am BLESSED to have called him father.

I ask the fathers out there what Legacy are you leaving for your children?

Remember children learn from us and emulate us as they grow up. Keep this in mind always………

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. Have a GREAT day . Peace
