Fatherhood is a serious responsibility. It separates boys from men.
For those who are lucky enough to have nurturing and loving fathers – they are very blessed.
Just because a man is a biological father, does not make him a FATHER!
Fathers shape lives. They’re there no matter what – for the good, the bad, the love, the discipline, to teach, to solve problems, and to influence their children. They help to create their child’s future.
To all of the men who take the role of fatherhood seriously, with love, compassion and nurturing, we salute you! You are role models for your children and hopefully for other fathers as well.
Celebrate your father, step-father and grandfather this Sunday!
