Men you have reason to celebrate!!!

Father's Day...June 20th...is a day honoring fathers and celebrating paternal bonds, fatherhood, and the influence of fathers in society in general. It's celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in 55 countries! The first observance  is believed to have occurred in June, 1910 after a parishoner, while listening to a sermon that honored Mothers, felt the same should be done for Fathers who deserved recognition. It took several years thereafter to make the holiday official, even with support from the YWCA, YMCA, and churches. The day even ran the risk of disappearing all together from the calender...as many people saw Father's Day as simply filling the calendar with mindless promotions!  Dang fathers, you just can't catch a break can ya?!?

Well here in 2010, celebrating the men making a difference in hour homes, churches, businesses, and communites, has never been more needed or crucial in a society where we hear 'too' many stories of 'dead beat dads or just trifling men in general. Please take a moment to recognize those men who deserve to be honored...I'll start it a 'Happy Father's Day' to my dad...the 'step' has long since been removed... Freddie and one of my 'favorite' uncles Walt and Royce, Sr.,.love you guys:) and to fathers everywhere from 97.1 QMG!

I'M WITH YOU IN TAKING THE "STEP" OUT; NEVER THOUGHT/FELT HIM AS THAT. MY "LATE" DAD WAS THE ONE WHO NURTURED; CARED AND LOVED ME AS A YOUNG CHILD. I CAN STILL HEAR HIM SAY "YOUR MOM IS GOING TO GET YOU". HE WAS THE PERSON WHO I RAN TO WHEN THINGS DIDN'TGO MY WAY/WENT WRONG IN MY LIFE. HE WAS LOVING AND VERY PROTECTED OF US KIDS; HE WILL ALWAYS REMAIN IN MY HEART. I OFTEN SIT AND REFLEX ON THE THINGS HE TAUGHT ME. HE WAS A TEACHER. ALL HE HAS TAUGHT/TOLD ME HAVE CAME/IS COMING TO PASS. DAD I LOVE YOU!
