It was such a great opportunity for me to sit and think about exactly what Jason does that I simply can't (or don't) do as a parent to Little Lady. The list just kept on growing. She is one blessed girl to have a Father like him. Now that list is going to make a really personal, special addition to an otherwise standard Hallmark Card this weekend!
So I challenge you: before Sunday, sit and think a couple minutes about what your kids love about their Dad. What he does that you don't. How he influences them and what he teaches them that are unique to his personality or strengths. Then write it down and encourage him!!
Dads in our day and age are not very highly valued, and we as moms don't always look beyond our controlling ways to value them ourselves. We ought to celebrate each and every Father who is leading their family and standing against the current of the increasingly-common culture of passive & uninvolved, or even absent, fathers. So now's your chance! But don't let it stop there, make it a habit to point out how great he is, to him and your kiddos. In the daunting task of parenting, we can all use a little 'atta boy every now and then!
