Father’s Day Tribute to Dad by Howard Wand
Let us give thanks to every dad who measured up and who took care of his sons and daughters. We raise our glasses and to you we drink a toast.
Those who are a father know it is not easy. You have to do the best you can for your children and family, and keep them focused to avoid the pitfalls, so they grow up with pride, honor, and integrity. It is never too late to embrace fatherhood. Some men did not measure up, and simply walked away. For every child left alone, for every child abandoned, we give thanks to those dads who stepped in, opened their hearts, and gave a child a home. Adopted or foster children know the love and caring they received to help mend their broken lives.
Let us remember too all of our soldiers who are dads, and that serve here and abroad to keep our children safe. Special thanks to those fine men who gave their lives for our security and the freedoms that we enjoy.
On this Father’s Day, set aside time to visit or chat with your dad. Thank him for the sacrifices he made and the efforts he put forth to provide a better life for you. Accept and embrace that no dad is perfect, but in spite of his flaws or weaknesses, he measured up and never left his post. This is indeed the final measure of a man.
God bless you dad for measuring up.
