A Father Day Greeting

Today is a special day, Father's Day.


I would like to give my greetings to all the Fathers and share with you something special about today on a personal level.

I woke up in the morning not expecting much of a celebration as my son is still a baby. As I was checking my email, my wife and boy came to me presenting a hand made card to me. It caught me by surprised as my boy haven't learned how to write but my wife took the effort to made the card.

In it was words of appreciation and for the method of the signing off, it was the palm print of my son.

I was touched.

Being a Father is one of the best thing that ever happened to me. It has bring me lots of joy and purpose in life. As I became a father, I begin to have a better understanding of my late father's love to me. My father provided resources to me the best that he can and given me the support, trust and the spaces that I need to grow as a man.

A father role is a big responsibility but it's a fulfilling one. It doesn't mean that we won't make mistakes but we just need to eat some humble pie to learn sime lessons in life and the children are always watching. No one is born a parent but we can grow into one and a better one I hope.

Many man can be a Father but it take someone special to be a Daddy.

I hope everyone can spend some quality time with your family today. Happy Father's Day.
