Happy Fathers’ Day!

It’s Fathers’ Day, and I’m thinking about all the great fathers I know…my dad, the boyfriend, uncles, cousins, friends, etc.  What makes them great?  It’ the way they hug you to make you feel better when you have a boo boo (and continue to pick you up when you need it as you grow older).  It’s knowing they’ll always be there to catch you if you fall (which gives you the courage to go after your dreams).  It’s the way they constantly brag to their friends and family about how their kid is “the best” at whatever they do (and sometimes what they haven’t done – to this day, my dad swears I would have been the next Diane Sawyer if only I’d have become a news anchor).  It’s the way they scare your boyfriends to make sure they’re good enough for you.  It’s the way they teach you how to do the things they do…in my case, this involved farming, paleontology, lapidary and gold panning, hunting, reading, astronomy, eating, and lifelong learning.  So, here’s to you dads…thank you for all you do and all you will do for us.  Enjoy your day!
