Father’s Day is Sunday. Have you sent Dad a card yet? Elicited the help of your mom and his sister to plan a weekend away? Don’t worry; there’s still time (as long as you’re not relying heavily on the postal service).
This Father’s Day, please celebrate the men who have made a difference in your life. Also, be considerate of those who have lost their dads, uncles, and male role models. It’s a difficult time for many.
Father’s Day is also a time to gently remind the men in your life that you’d like to keep them around. Talk to them about going to the doctor for that achy knee or making the appointment for their colonoscopy that their physician recommended last year. Nope! There’s nothing particularly pleasant about it, but if women must endure mammograms, it’s the least you can do.
Take care of each other. Those who have lost their dad can tell you more about just how important it is.
And check out this video about a dad staying connected to his son and helping other dads do the same thing. He mentions in the video that, “It wasn’t the fishing”. With my passion for fishing, I disagree, but you’ll understand Dwight’s comment when you hear it. I do too.
