Faithful, fun, leader, protector, these are just a few words our Family Table followers use to describe a father. As we have built up our Father’s Day contest, it was interesting to see how people describe a father. So, I decided to ask my husband what being a father has meant to him.
Now, we are still somewhat new parents. Our oldest is four years old, so we are well aware that we have a long road ahead of us. But, in the four years of being a father my husband says that being a father is one of the greatest privileges man can receive. To him, being a father means leading and guiding your children to make good decisions and building character.
Even though my husband likes to be the tough guy, he shows our children love and affection in the tough times. He said to me the other day that even though it can be stressful being a parent, the best payment for all of the stress comes in four words, “Daddy, I love you!” I look forward to honoring my husband this Father’s Day for the amazing father he is to our boys. I have a feeling I’ll be spending this weekend grilling and making his favorite dessert.
Need some gift ideas for dad? Try making him a gift from the heart. Also, it’s not too late to enter our Father’s Day contest and win the grill with accessories PLUS a $100 Meijer gift card! All you have to do is go to our Family Table Facebook page and post one word you would use to describe a father. Hurry! The winner will be announced Thursday, June 13th.
