My journey into fatherhood was kind of shocking to my family. There I was only 19 and I fell in love with this woman and two wonderful boys. They were so wonderful, one was just one and the other just a couple months old. I jumped in with both feet, the boys did not have a father, so I became the Dad and shared my love with them. A few years later we had another son and we also lost one. Over the next 20 years we added five more boys and one girl to the family. As with all big families our house became the center of the community. Tons of kids were coming and going, some I just share a few words with and some I have known for years and shared my joy and love with them.
This weekend was a typical time for me. My daughter headed off with my sister n law on a mini vacation. I gave her a huge hug, wished her well and slipped her a few dollars. One of the boys played in an all-star soccer tournament, which I loved watching. In between shopping for food for the week, and cleaning some. When we came back home from the second game, which he won, I discovered the stove had problems. I worked on fixing the issue and discovered a few surprises.
One of the boy already cut the grass and now he was making dinner on the grill. He said he noticed I was working on the stove, so he went to work on making dinner on the grill. Surprises like that makes me really happy and excited with them sharing joy and love back. Being a father is all about providing for your family. We provide with all our love, going to jobs to provide money, fixing things to provide comfort and safety, cleaning inside and outside the home to make it feel nice for all the family. The list of what I do for my family is endless and so is my love for them.
This was just my story I am sure your Dad has a story to tell you to. Go visit him or give him a call today I am sure he will love to hear from you. If you are like me, my father passed away 19 years ago, just remembering him with joy and love is all you can do. Do it share your joy and love with him, He will smile and feel great just for you sharing a few words of love.
Happy Fathers Day
Much joy and love to you and yours.
