Life is too precious… Never take it for granted!
First off, I want to wish all the Fathers, Father-in-laws and to-be-fathers a wonderful and Happy Fathers Day. Today is a day your family celebrates how important you are to them, your role as a father, and how much the world would not be the same without your presence. Although your love, presence, and role as a father is to be celebrated everyday, today helps us remind how wonderful and important you are to those around you.
To my family, friends and blog readers, let this blog remind you to never take what you have in life for granted for you may never know when you could lose it all. Although everyday is a celebration, today is an extra special celebration of that Father in your life. If you live close to your father, make sure to spend the day with him and if you are far away, do not forget to take some time out of your day and call him. Let your father know how important and thankful you are for having him in your life. You may already know this, but I reiterate it again because you never know when that opportunity may be lost forever.
To the world you are a dad, to my family you are our world
My dad, the first man I ever loved passed away in March 2013. He had a heart attack and in that instant, I lost any and every chance to say Goodbye. His birthday(s) have passed, multiple Fathers Days have gone by and I keep thinking, I would give anything to just have another moment with my day. I would give up everything to just tell my dad in person how much I love him and how much he meant to me. Unfortunately, I will never get this opportunity and I know how heartbreaking this is.
With this, I ask you all to remind yourself how fortunate you are to have that Father figure in your life and remember to celebrate him today with all that you can! For those who have also lost a special one, let this day remain a celebration of your father and how wonderful he was for all those years in your life. Happy Fathers Day to everyone.
