Father’s Day – it’s not all bells and whistles out there.
Cards, Texts, Emails, Skype, WhatsApp and even good old letters. There’s lots flying around today as everyone celebrates Father’s Day in the way they know best.
But it’s not all bells and whistles out there. There’ll be many sons and daughters who’ll be hiding away as they try and get through their first Father’s Day without their Dad. Equally, there’ll be lots of Dad’s who’ve lost their son or daughter – those very people who recognise the crucial role a Dad plays.
So if you’re one of the lucky ones who still has their Dad with them, then treasure their presence. And whatever relationship you have with them, remember that without them you wouldn’t be here today. That in itself is the most wonderful gift that any parent can be loved for.
However you choose to celebrate Father’s Day, may it help you to remember just what life and relationships are all about.
