Happy Father’s Day

16079Happy Father’s Day to all the Hot Daddies who make their child’s future and well being their top priority.

Your kids will always love, respect, and appreciate all your efforts.

It’s not the gifts you buy or the money you spend that will leave the positive everlasting impact on your child.

It’s the intangible things you do that will never be forgotten: school functions/activites you attend, words of wisdom you share, understanding/accepting their imperfections, encouragement during tough times, and being present in the moment.

“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” -Sigmund Freud

“One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is. Later that night, the Father prayed, Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.” -Author Unknown

“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” -Anne Geddes

“The father who does not teach his son his duties is equally guilty with the son who neglects them.” -Confucius

“Until you have a son of your own . . . you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. You will never know the sense of honor that makes a man want to be more than he is and to pass something good and hopeful into the hands of his son. And you will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the personal demons that keep them from being the men they want their sons to be.”-Kent Nerburn

“Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” -Ruth E. Renkel

“The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” -David O. McKay

…and for all the new dads special quote that makes me think of my own father (one of the most moral, hard working, honest, loving, family men I know):

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. ~Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby, 1968
