A father is a man who loves without cost to his children
and tries to raise them to be fully human creatures
with the abilities to make a difference in our world.
Some fathers are successful, some are not.
However, almost all try their best.
This Father’s Day,
let your dad know that you appreciate all his efforts.
Your strength in helping me to tell right
from wrong was a great gift.
You taught me that to honor myself
was a way to honor the God who made me.
Thanks, Dad, for having faith in me,
when I was not sure I had faith in myself.
You loved me even when I did not love myself.
For that I am grateful.
