“> Father’s Day 2009

Fathers are taken for granted. We need money-dad is there; any problem-dad will fix it; confused, feeling lost, looking for advice-dad is always there with his worldly wisdom. He is the man, who by holding our little fingers, helped us take that first step and taught us how to walk. The unconditional love and support (both emotional and financial) that a father provides, we take it as our birthright.


We all love our fathers; respect them; but do we display our love and affection? Most of us don’t feel the need. We simply assume that they know our feelings. Certainly, fathers don’t expect anything in return. Their love is pure and unconditional. But take a pause and ponder, what if we openly express our feelings to our fathers? They will be overjoyed.


Father’s Day is an occasion to remind our dads how important they are to us and how much we love them. Though we can do it anytime, but to celebrate it formally on a particular day all over the world adds to the significance. And why limit it to our fathers alone. We can extend it to anyone who has been a father figure to us-stepfather, uncle, grandfather, teacher, elder brother et al.






What Is A Dad?

– Anonymous


A Dad is a person

who is loving and kind,

And often he knows

what you have on your mind.


He’s someone who listens,

suggests, and defends

A dad can be one

of your very best friends!


He’s proud of your triumphs

but when things go wrong

A dad can be patient

and helpful and strong.


In all that you do,

a dad’s love plays a part

There’s always a place for him

deep in your heart.


And each year that passes

you’re even more glad,

More grateful and proud

just to call him your dad!


Thank you, Dad …

for listening and caring

for giving and sharing

but, especially, for just being you!


Happy Father’s Day
