Looking for the best Father’s Day quotes? Read on!
I always tell people that I knew my husband would be a good father. But seeing it in action brought a whole new level of respect and admiration.
There’s something about the gentleness of a grown man with a delicate newborn. And the pure joy of their interaction with the kids. Something about their own admiration for their little ones – the way they guide them, and the pride they have as they watch them grow.
Father’s Day, like Mother’s Day, can come with a mix of emotions, depending on your relationships with your own fathers, the father of your children, or the men in your life who desire to be fathers. I respect that for sure, and if it’s a hard day for you, I hope you find comfort today.
