Fathers make us who we are; sleepless nights as a baby, teaching fundamentals as a toddler, enforcing morals as a teen. Fathers stand in front as protectors, and pave the way through obstacles. Fathers give us strength when we are weak and guide us when we are lost. Fathers make sacrifices to pass a better life on, and give us unconditional love through it all. Fathers are our heroes. The strongest person we know, and the one we aspire to emulate.
Whether you’re a father spending the day playing unlimited poker, drinking beer, and shooting guns with the bros, or rounding up the crew around the homestead for some good old fashioned family time, today we celebrate you, Dad. Thanks for all you do.
