This is Father’s Day weekend in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom which, naturally, is the reason for the title of this week’s blog post. We all have a father … that’s a given. Some fathers are still with us and some are not. As we were growing up, some fathers were loving and caring—demonstrating to their children the quintessential role model of the ideal father. For others, our fathers were or may still remain flawed or absent from our lives.
Love is the underpinning of life, and a father’s love is certainly an important aspect of the love we all wish to have.
In spite of the fact that my dad was far from perfect, I was a “Daddy’s girl.” As a child, I would follow him around—totally fascinated by anything and everything he was doing. He used to work on cars in his spare time. Since I was right there, he would ask me to hand him this or that.
“Hand me that wrench, Neet!” he would bellow. Looking over the pile of greasy objects, I would pick up what I hoped might be a wrench only to hear, “Not that! Don’t you know what a wrench looks like?”
Pleasing my dad was something I always tried to do, but did not always succeed. However, whether he was happy with me or upset, the one thing I was always sure of was that he loved me. Oh, he never said it much, but I knew it. I think that made me one lucky kid, and for that I am grateful.
My wish for you this Father’s Day weekend, is that you appreciate the love you’ve been given, and give your love freely and fully … to your fathers, mothers, children … to your family and friends … and especially to yourself.
