Thank You, Dad

Happy Father’s Day to my Dad, who raised seven of us in a house with one bathroom, worked six days a week, and didn’t seem to think it was any big deal. That’s what men do.

Happy Father’s Day to my husband, who walked the baby at 3am, who pays the bills, who critiques my creative writing, and doesn’t act like it’s any big deal. That’s what men do.

Happy Father’s Day to my father-in-law, who raised nine children in a house with one bathroom, worked in a factory so his kids could go to college, never brags about it. That’s what men do.

Happy Father’s Day to all you good men out there. You hold up your half of the sky.

  1. Amazing. Not something I was exposed to having a “Dad” in the picture and when I watch Father & Son’s/daughters at ball games or dances I think, and hope, those children remember the special moments with Dad. When I listen to kids and grown-ups complain about the little issues with the Dad….I try and put it into perspective. There are many great Dad’s and many single dad’s raising their children whom seem forgotten….I am amazing at their responsibilities, strength and abilities to juggle. Happy Father’s Day to the coping Dad’s.
