I’m a tad late: Happy Father’s Day!
Mother’s and Father’s Days are sometimes touchy for people, because they might not have had the best or any parents.
For Father’s Day, though, we should see it as a day to celebrate the real men in our lives, not just our dads, but any man who has made a positive impact on a child’s life.
There are a lot of men – even some who don’t have their own kids and families — who put other people’s kids and families before themselves.
Same goes for women and Mother’s Day.
I must say though, that I am seeing a lot of good fathers in Stockton and elsewhere. It really makes me smile when I see parents playing with their kids and being an instrumental part of young people’s lives.
So, Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers, soon-to-be fathers, uncles, cousins, brothers, teachers and friends — and to all the single moms out there who are doing double duty. I hope you had a great day and felt completely loved and appreciated, you deserve it!
