He deserves a special gift, after all. Dads play a special role in our lives and it’s one that sometimes goes unacknowledged. There is nothing that can replace that special male role model, is there? For sons they show what it is to be a man. For daughters they set the standard for their future life partner. Those are seriously big shoes to fill.
We make a big noise about Mother’s Day but Father’s Day seems to slip by without the big fanfare which is disappointing. They deserve every bit of respect, love and pampering that mums do. OK, perhaps they’d prefer to watch the footy in peace instead of the pampering, but you know what I mean.
Men don’t usually show their feelings like women do but you know that he lives for you. Everything he has done in life has been for you. He’s given you everything that he could to make your life easier. He won’t tell you about it; he just does it. He loves you very much.
Make sure that your dad knows how much you love him, too.
Remember that a little love
goes a long way.
Remember that a lot… goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s treasures are people… together.
Realize that it’s never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Have health and hope and happiness.
Take the time to wish upon a star.
And don’t ever forget… for even a day…
How very special you are.
