HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
I know that our kids will be blessing you on this day.
Usually, we women, wearing many hats, tend to leave it to our kids to bless you.
But I’d like to make a point for this Father’s Day that we, women, appreciate and bless you, too.
For centuries, we have been in love with you.
We love you for what you are and respect you for trying to do your best.
Because we women are an intelligent, strong and powerful race of people, sometimes you must find us intimidating.
But fear not. We are in your corner. We are your partners in life.
We share and understand your struggle and your effort to stay wise and clear in our rapidly changing society.
We, especially, respect you for your decision to commit yourselves to being fathers.
It is a very tough decision to make in today’s world in which constant adjustment of your ideas and actions are demanded of you.
I don’t know if we ever thanked you.
So here it is: Thank you, and we love you.
For Father’s Day
