I love Father’s Day! For one, it almost guarantees me a touch point with all those I care about, and, for another, it usually provides good points to ponder.
My Mother’s card said, “Being a good father starts with being a good person.” I agree. Being a good person also contributes to wider success as a husband, son, nephew, neighbor, and employee or business partner.
I was a Boy Scout – Troop 2 – Bridgeton, NJ for a few years. The words Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent still roll off my tongue, and I still thank my Parents and relatives, friends, teammates, classmates, and co-workers in helping make me who I am today —- a good person. And I’m also confident and proud that I have contributed to future generations of good people.
From my youngest: The Greatest Gifts a Father can Give His Daughter — smiles, self-confidence, advice, pride, affection, memories, and, most of all, it’s just knowing that whenever I need you, you’re there – and thanks for always being there.
A good person is always there for those he cares about. Thanks for Father’s Day!
