To all fathers I wish much peace and joy, love and blessings on your special day. And I'm not talking about just biological fathers, but anyone who has given fathering care along the way.
Fathering makes up at least half the nurturing we need growing up and in the nature of the circle of life, fathering is then given in turn when we mature.
Fathers are known as and become the backbone of our life and personality, especially during our formative years. The role gives structure and we all know any construction needs a solid foundation to hold the innards.
Fathers are like the foundation and frame of the house, sometimes hardly seen but always important.
Fathers and those who father as in the verb, give an invaluable service to the development of kids, grandkids and all they come in contact with in their lives.
I still have a stepfather whom I cherish and respect even here in middle age. My biological parents have long gone on, but I still get that warm glow and comfortable feeling interacting with my step dad.
Take time in your meditation to give appreciation to all those who gave you fathering, and ask for strength that you will have the insight to give fathering when called upon in return.
Father's Day Prayer
Dear fathers everywhere
For your strong and caring ways
Appreciation we give today.
And, for teaching us
That patience, kindness
Carries us through every day.
