Fathers Day Is About Family

Today Is the day we take the time to recognize the fathers in our lives. According to the U.S. Census, almost one out of every three children in our country grow up without their father. When dads are not around to support, families and children can be impacted as a result.

Being a father is about making a conscious decision to be a part of your child's life. Easier said than done.

How do you be a good father? The easiest way to answer that question for me is to look at my own father. He is my role model for a good father. He went to work everyday, he supported our financial needs, and he was there when we laughed and when we cryed. If you can do that, your a good father.

Today's fathers have a lot more to deal with concerning their children and todays issues. But the basics still hold true. Being in your child's life when the tough times come won't cure every woe, but your child needs someone to count and lean on when times are tough.

Fathers Day is the day we take the time to show appreciation and gratitude for our fathers. But as a father, inside my heart, I will be feeling appreciation and gratitude for my family. I am the lucky one.
