Father’s Day

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Today I woke up earlier than the rest of my family, as usual, and had some time to myself then I quickly got my four year old baby girl ready and went to the store. We shopped for all the ingredients to make the best Father’s day breakfast ever! On top of that we bought my husband a special cake to honor him for being such a wonderful man and father.

When I got home, I prepared the breakfast and served it to my husband. I did everything that I could think of to make my husband feel special and know that we (my children and I) really love and appreciate him. Then I got to thinking, what if every day, I did everything that I could think of to let my husband know how much I love and appreciate him? What kind of wife would that make me? What kind of marriage would we then have?

So this is my declaration: Everyday, I will do everything that I can think of to show my husband how much I love and appreciate the warm, loving, generous and righteous man that he is.

I believe that if more of us, wives, made this one effort, we can change the future of marriages and thereby change the futures of our children. Think of how our children will feel when they see their mother loving, respecting and holding their father in the highest esteem! My son (when he grows up) will know that he is worthy of love, respect and appreciation. My daughter (when she, too, grows up) will know that the best way to have a wonderful spouse starts with being one.

To all the wives (and mothers) I encourage you to join me in my quest for creating a better future for our children. Let’s lead by example. Let’s show the men in our lives (even if he is not your husband) that they are worthy of love, respect and appreciation. Now, I know there are some women who will say that the father of their child is NOT worthy of love and respect and to this, I say show it to him anyway. Remember, you cannot control another person’s behavior, but you can control your own. Remember, we are leading by example.

Some time ago, I remember reading this quote “The best thing that a father can do for his children is to love their mother” and I contend that the best thing that a mother can do for her children is to love their father.

I’m so grateful to my Mother who has loved and showed love to my father all my life and to my Father for being the best dad that I could ask for and more.

To all the Fathers: HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
