Dad. Although his title may be very short, his influence in our lives is long, powerful and profound. Father’s day comes once a year, however we celebrate his existence every day. When you say his name aloud, you realize how much he means to you. In a beautiful way, his love comes in many shades. This is the man who teaches you how to lead, respect others and stand up for yourself. In the same day or even the same hour, he morphs into your action-packed friend who is always down for a good conversation. Memories of our dads bring big bright smiles to our faces.
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” ―Jim Valvano
“No Love is greater than that of a Father…”- Dan Brown
At times Dads may not be good with words or they are not around anymore to tell us how they feel about having us. We took some quotes from dads who shared their thoughts:
“Of all the titles I’ve been privileged to have, ‘Dad’ has always been the best.” ―Ken Norton
“Being a good dad starts with presence not presents”- Unknown
“It’s an ongoing joy being a dad’- Liam Neeson
If you have an experience of fatherhood or a photograph and story about your own father, you can share your photos, videos and stories with us, and we would LOVE to know more about him. We will feature the most interesting contributions our social media.
A few tracks to help us celebrate being dads and our dads.
