Father's Day

Posted by Shayla Simmons — 14 Jun 2012

On Sunday June 17, 2012, fathers will be celebrated for their unique presence in this world.  A father is someone that pushes you a little further each time, brushing you off when you fall and telling you to try try again.  He is a man that plays rough and has a daring mischievous side, but, in serious times offers a voice of reason. 

Fathers may have different relationships with their sons than they have with their daughters.  Garrison Keillor, an American author, explains this dual relationship with this quote: "The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage.  A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, 'Daddy, I need to ask you something,' he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan."

A father is a man of great strength, but, has his weaknesses.  A father is a man of rationale and yet, oddly possesses absurdity at the same time - convoluted as he is.... Fathers, we love you!!!
