This Sunday is Father’s Day here in Australia. The day we give the dad’s of this world a pat on the back and say “You know what? You’re alright.”
Mr M is a good dad. It’s nice knowing that I chose a good man to have a family with. But what makes him a good man? It’s not that he’s flawless. He’s not. Neither am I. It’s the fact that Mr M doesn’t hide or deny his flaws or limitations; he recognises them, addresses them.
Basically he’s man enough to be honest with himself and rise to it.
And his reward isn’t that this Sunday he will be celebrated (although it is nice) it’s the fact that everyday when he walks through the front door the kids excitedly run up to greet him.
We’re quite a few years off the teenage years so we’ll see how the greeting process goes then.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY MR M!
DONE GOOD, PLAYED STRONG!
