Spreading the Love on Father’s Day

“I talk and talk and talk, and I haven’t taught people in 50 years what my father taught by example in one week.” — Mario Cuomo

Wishing my father (who probably won’t read this), my husband, and all the hardworking fathers out there a happy father’s day. While I think that every day should be father’s day, and gratitude should be expressed on a daily basis to all our fathers, it doesn’t hurt to give some extra love and attention today.

“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” — Charles Wadsworth

“Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young, Who loved thee so fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue, And joined in thy innocent glee.” — Margaret Courtney
