Fathers are indeed the strength behind the upbringing of a child. The Daughters adore their fathers and search for the same loving personality in the man they fall in love with.

The sons are inspired by their fathers for the strength and support they receive in abundance from the fathers and father figures in their lives. They would always aspire to become someone as wonderful and humane as their fathers are. Even for the grown-ups fathers will remain to be looked up to for wisdom and advise that is in the best of interest. Hence it becomes our responsibility to pay their due respect and tribute not just on Father’s Day but, every other day of our lives.

Today is a great day to say THANK YOU DAD!

Thank not just your father but also, every man that has played an important role in shaping your life. Expresses your innermost feelings of appreciation for all the guidance, patience, love and care you’ve received in plenty from these loving men. Doing little things that would make them happy would be a beautiful way to say how fortunate and blessed we are to have him in our otherwise incomplete lives.

It is also a great day to say SORRY DAD.

One of the best times to say ‘I’m sorry Dad’ would be now. The splendid opportunity to apologize for those actions and behaviour that may have made your dad upset would be definitely on Father’s Day. The times when we as children take all the love and affection of our parents for granted and hurt them with insensitivity, the affection on their part still remains unfaded. Now that we realize how significant they are in our lives, an apology should work as a balm to heal the pain they felt within their souls. In turn we are forgiven and blessed.

One should not miss the opportunity of thanking all the fatherly figures and express gratitude as they have also been pivotal in bringing up or nurturing children. Special tribute should be given to these wonderful human beings on the Day of the Fathers to thank them and express love and appreciation for being so wonderful and exemplary in taking care of children.

Lastly, cherish what you have. This bond is literally the greatest gift life has given you.

Let’s all celebrate our blessed lives with the ones who are responsible for it, our fathers. This special day will be even more special when we put in our best efforts to it. Children staying away from the family should take time out to spend the day with their father and show grat- itude for their guidance, love, and patience all their lives. Father’s Day is the perfect time to pamper fathers by spending the day the way he likes it the most. Special care should be taken to arrange outdoor picnics, barbecue parties or a gourmet meal at his favourite restaurant or at home in a pleasant ambience. Neckties, bouquet of his favourite flowers and other thoughtful gifts could express appreciation and love towards fathers in more ways than one on their special celebration. Last but not the least among several other ways to make the event cherished is to say, ‘I love you Dad’ and make sure you mean it.
