None of us is neutral when we talk about our fathers. Every Father’s Day solicits delight or disturbance deep within us. Truth be told, maybe a little bit of both.

On the other hand, you may feel sadness and regret; perhaps even resentment, anger, and fear. We can learn from our father memories. Dad, let’s focus on the examples we should be for those we influence—and let’s make our lasting impressions a legacy of love, affection, affirmation, and security.
