Happy Father’s Day. As I watch my sons who have transformed into fathers, I see how they’ve grown into loving men. They each have their own and different way of fatherhood, but both are geared towards teaching their children what is important.
For those who have lost their Dad, today can be a challenge. Hold on to the loving memories that you have today. For your father’s love never leaves.
I wanted to share some quotes that I found that brought truth and some laughter.
“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” –Anne Geddes
“A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.” –Unknown
“A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.” –Enid Bagnold
And a little humor.
“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” –Charles Wadsworth
“new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he’s in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.” –Bill Cosby
Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. ~Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby, 1968
