In our house, we celebrate birthdays and holidays like Mother's Day and Father's Day all weekend long. I spent most of the day with my daughter running around to finish up our Father's Day weekend plans.
My husband is awesome and deserves the best. Although I try my best to acknowledge and thank him day after day for all that he does, we take this holiday seriously in this house. If we're falling short in the recognition department, my hope is that our efforts this weekend each year will certainly show him our appreciation.
I hope you take time to celebrate the fathers in your life this weekend. And if you are missing your father, or a father-like figure, I offer my deepest sympathies and hope that you have fond memories to reflect upon.
Be open to what comes.
