Sunday Dinner: Loving Dads

“I believe that what we become
depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments,
when they aren’t trying to teach us.
We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”
Umberto Eco



“Beauty is not who you are on the outside,
it is the wisdom and time you gave away
to save another struggling soul like you.”
Shannon L. Alder



“Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery.  
It merely washes clean the glass you look through
so you can clearly see the colors.”

Richelle E. Goodrich



Happy Father’s Day to everyone who has gone the distance, who has given their best effort, who has expressed unconditional love to a child.  Maybe the child was your own flesh, maybe not.   Families are often made more through love and respect than through simple biology.  And every child needs a loving, responsible, dependable guide to grow into a loving, responsible, dependable adult.  Whatever your gender, whatever your age; I hope today is filled with love for you.

“By being grateful, appreciating all we have
instead of focusing on what is lacking,
we allow more of the same to flow toward us.”
William Powers
