There is something simultaneously powerful and tender about seeing dads be dads. I’m not talking about the ones who just dutifully complete to-do lists or even the ones who put on a Pinterest-worthy show. I’m talking about the real deal. The everyday dad whose heart and actions are where his family is.
So, a shout out this Father’s Day to that dad.
The one who takes time out to teach the important skills, and the not-so-important ones.
The dad who gets outside his comfort zone and makes magic happen.
The one who slows down and takes life at the speed of a toddler, because he knows it’s better that way.
The one whose life is bigger and better because he invites his kids into his world.
The dad who's up in the night because he feels the awesome responsibility of caring for that tiny bit of heaven, too.
And to the one who teaches and listens and loves, at every stage of the game.
Happy Father's Day!
