Fathers have huge influence in the lives of their children.
They demonstrate dedication, faith in God, forgiveness, hard work, humility, and, love.
( My Dad as a soldier in the U.S. Army, Infantry.)
Their encouraging words can help a child feel confident whether it's while learning to tie a shoe or making it through the maze of college applications.
When the world closes in and a little heart is breaking, a father's warm embrace can make everything okay again.
My own late father's love helped me throughout all the decades of my life.
Even today, I can laugh over many funny things he said, all those years ago, when life was simpler and worry-free.
My husband is also a great father to our children and dedicated grandfather to our grandchildren.
Our son and son-in-law are also great dads so I have been incredibly blessed and am deeply grateful.
A happy and blessed Father's Day to fathers and father-figures everywhere.
