I came home from work today and my wife handed me a Father’s Day card. She told me that my son made it last night. She’s supposed to give it to me on Sunday but she can no longer wait. She also thought that it might make me feel better after 12 hours of craziness in the E.R. She was right. As soon as I read the card, all my physical exhaustion and psychological frustrations melted away. I felt so happy that my son took the time to make something for me. It was the most beautiful Happy Father’s Day card I’ve ever seen.
My son told me at the later part of the day that he had a surprise for me on Father’s Day. I asked him what it was. He told me, ” It’s a surprise, dad!” I smiled at him and replied back, ” Can’t wait for my surprise.”
On top of my Father’s Day card, my son made me these drawings. My wife said that he made several sketches until finally he decided that this was the perfect one. I thought it was a masterpiece. I was so proud of my little boy.
My wife asked me what I want for Father’s Day. I told her not to buy me any material thing. All I could ever want is already in front of me. Just being with them is the greatest present I could ever ask for. After all, a Holiday is all about celebrating with families and friends. It’s not about the trimmings nor the elaborate preparations. It’s about the gathering of those closest to you and sharing with them your time, love and affection. I’m okay with a simple dinner of Pizza, a bucket of KFC chicken followed by a family oriented DVD movie. My family is my most cherished gift on this special day for dads.
Happy Father’s Day to all.What’s your best Father’s day gift? What’s the one thing you did or gave that brought a glow on your husband’s face? Sometimes it could just be as easy as saying ” I Love You” followed by a warm hug. We husbands or dads are way to easy to please.
