"It is a wise father that knows his own child." ~Shakespeare
"Mothers play an important role as the heart of the home, but this in no way lessens the equally important role fathers should play, as head of the home, in nurturing, training, and loving their children," ~Ezra Taft Benson
I could sit here, going on and on about how awesome my husband is, or thanking my dad, but I want to turn the tables a little bit.
I want to talk to the wives or influential women of these Dads.
You say what Marcella?
I want to speak to these women about the power they have to make or break these men.
"Daddy doesn't do it right."
"Daddy is never around."
"Your Dad spends too much."
"He's so lazy." (Never mind the fact he just worked a 12 hour day.)
"He only thinks about food."
"If only he did more around the house."
Complain, complain, complain.
Nag, nag, nag.
Your children are watching you...
Your children are listening to every thing you say about your spouse.
What if we constantly lifted our husbands up?
What if we constantly praised the fathers of our children?
What if we thanked them more often?
What if we prayed for them more?
What if we did everything possible to make it a cinch for these men to be awesome Dads?
Let's make our children's father, their hero.
Happy Father's Day to our hero.
