It's that one day of the year where we honor that most forgotten of beings, our fathers. We always make a great deal of fuss about Mothers day; woe be unro those that forget to call their Mama and send her a card on her special day, but it seems that Fathers Day is more of, "well if you remember, ok, if not, no big deal" kind of day. It seems that in our society, fathers are always the forgotten ones. If he's lucky, dad will get a new tie or maybe a new bottle of aftershave (usually one so odoriferious that he would never really use it). Not for him the spate of special phone calls and invitations to a posh brunch. And thats OK. Dad knows we love him without all the extra attention.

This is the first Fathers Day without my Father-in-Law, and it makes me realize how much I miss him. I would have liked to make one last call and wish him happiness and health on his special day. I'm just greatful that I still have my own Dad for one more Fathers Day. I searched the web until I found just the right sentiment to describe how I feel about my dad, here it is:

A father and a dad are not the same:
One can be a dad and not a father,
Or one can be a father and not bother
To earn through love the more endearing name.
Some find fatherhood a bit too tame,
Leaving all the details to the mother,
Or dumping the sweet burden on another
Man with just a passing twinge of shame.
You have been our dad so many years
That you've become the landscape that is home,
The mountain that we look to from afar.
No matter where we go we're not alone,
For you remain within to still our fears
And be the word that tells us who we are.

~Nicholas Gordon

I love you Dad.

Take time out of your busy day and let your dad know how you feel about him, it will be all too soon when you will no longer be able to share your feelings with him and you will regret every missed opportunity.
