There are some who will think I have finally flipped my lid, talking about dads on "A Mother's Monday" blog series. You might be right and then again, maybe the out-of-the-box way my brain works is on to something. Read on to see which it is, have I finally lost it or is there a tiny bit of truth to my thought processes today.
Yesterday was Father's Day. Most celebrate and honor their Dad's with picnics, gatherings, cards, notes, or whatever your family tradition might be. I had the honor to join the Oswego community for Walt Julian's World - 10 Again Celebration at Breitbeck Park. Julian is a child cancer warrior, to learn more about Julian and how you can join he and his family in prayer, click here. I'm thankful we were able to help and be there for part of the day.
As I thought about Julian and his Dad sitting together at the hospital Face-timing with his Mom, who was in Oswego at the event, I was humbled.
The importance of Father's or Mother's Day isn't the material gifts given...it's the time spent with the miracles God gives us, our children. In today's society, there are ways to be together when it's physically impossible. You do what you have to do keep family first and the focus. This requires a team.
Mom is a part of this team. Not everyone reading this has a Mom and Dad in their lives. Some reading this have lost a parent to death and miss their mentors daily yet find the strength to move forward each and every day. It's a Mother's Monday and without the men in our lives, we would not be Mom's. Today, let's share a little love and encouragement for the men in our lives, especially our Dads.
