It's Father's Day.
Every June, Father's Day rolls around, and the question gets asked, "What do I get my Father for Father's Day?" Some staples each year for your Dad may include, socks, a tie, golf balls, or perhaps that latest tool or gadget that he's been hankering for.
And all of those are fitting. Yet, if you really want to find the perfect gift for your Father, you can give him the gift he really wants, but would never ask for. This gift is a "one size fits all" kind of present which every Father can put on. In fact, I think the tougher your ol' man is on the outside, the more this will be the perfect gift for him. What is it, you ask?
It's the gift of acknowledgement.
Instead of just saying, "Happy Father's Day" on your traditional Father's Day card, if you were to write something like this, you would reach the heart of every Father out there.
I wanted to take this moment to thank you for being my hero.
I realize that you probably work a job you don't like, with a boss whom you don't respect, making your life difficult, so that you can pay your taxes to provide a better life for me than the one you had.
I know that you sacrificed your dreams and aspirations to see that I could make mine a reality. I know that you do this because you Love our family. When I think you are missing an event because of work, I now know you are making money so that I can have the opportunity to follow my dreams. I can now see that when you get mad at me for the decisions I've made in my life, it's because you want better for me, and you wanted to save me the challenges you've faced to find happiness.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is Thank you. Thank you for being my hero. Thank you for believing in me, and working hard to give me all the small things in life which I don't often see. I know we don't often give you the acknowledgement that you fully deserve, but today I wanted to let you know that I know this now.
Happy Father's Day"
So if you are asking What do I get my Father for Father's day, this will be the greatest one size fits all gift you can give him.
Happy Father's Day Dad. Thanks for all you all you are to me, and for your unconditional Love.
Happy Father's Day to you all.
