It seems like with each passing year, holidays become more commercialized: Christmas, Valentines, even Mother’s Day. But not so much Father’s Day.
This post is nothing but commercials about being a dad. The great thing is that they’re not overtly selling anything … except the value of fatherhood.
If you’re a dad, look them over and be reminded how important you’re role is. If you still have you’re dad around, let him know what he means to you while you still can (I wish I still could).
Our encouragement to you: Build up the dad in your life by sharing this post (or the individual videos) with him. And encourage other dads by sharing the post via social media.
But most of all, have a (not-so-commercialized) happy Father’s Day.

We fathers may not always be in tune with emotions, but we seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to protecting our children.

Making the transition from protecting to releasing your child in the adult world comes quickly. And sometimes the lines get blurred.

It’s not just the thought that counts. I still have a few of these stashed away. You never know when they’ll come in handy. 🙂

Your day-to-day fathering may seem like meaningless scraps sometimes, but they’re collecting in the lives of your children.
Caring Makes a Man Stronger – Dove Men+Care (Super Bowl 2015)
The name “Dad” says a lot of things, as you can hear in the expressions of these children. One word, so many meanings.
