“My father didn’t tell me how to live.
He lived and let me watch him do it.”
―Clarence Budington Kelland
This month we get the opportunity to celebrate Father’s Day. There are so many different ways that people show their love and appreciation for the special father in their life. How do you most often express your feelings to your father?
Sometimes when I was younger I would write a handwritten card or bring him breakfast in bed. Now, as I am older and hopefully wiser, I think back on many different times in my life that I knew he was there for me and I like to write these memories in a heartfelt letter to my dad.
