If Mother’s are the staple of who we are. Father’s are the backbone. It is a gift from God to be a father.
Some father’s are involved. Some father’s are more distant. Some father’s are absent. But they all give us lessons to make us grow.
I have been blessed with a great father who leads by example. Even when I did not always get it. I got it. He gave me the space to grow and understand.
Beyond my father, I have been grateful for my wife’s father. We have shared many laughs and disagreements over the years. But, there has always been respect.
Even now as he struggles with his memory. To honor the man is, was and still is important. It is important because my children are watching. Something that is not lost on me.
The same way I watched my father and learned. In the same vein as my father who paved the way and lead by example. I hope to be the example of the grace I saw. Sometimes it pays to watch and learn.
It is Father’s Day.It is a time to reflect on the lessons taught and learned. And it is a day to watch baseball. And to remember what a gift it is to be in the position of being a father.
