A big thank you goes to all the dads who have encouraged their children to chase dreams and seek their destiny as they develop and mature into who they are meant to be and for simply being there and “showing up” to the important things in our lives.
My wish to all fathers this Father’s Day and especially to my father and husband is to enjoy the day by celebrating your role as a father.
If your father has passed away, take a moment to remember the positive ways he influenced your life. Make a commitment to live a life that honors your father as you carry on the legacy.
I am a quote fanatic who has a quote book on just about every topic there is. Here are some Father’s Day quotes for this special day — some humorous, some thought provoking and some great to live by. If you like one or two, maybe you can pass it on.
