On this wonderful day called "Father's Day," I would like to salute all fathers everywhere...
Being a father is a tough job, and being a good father is even more complex. What makes a good father varies depending upon the perception of the person giving the description. One thing we all can agree on; having a father is one of lifes more memorable experiences.
If I could describe the relationship chemistry between the man and woman as it relates to parenting, it would be similar to a football game. The father would play the position as a receiver and the mother of course would be the quarterback.
The quarterback is the most important person on the team because he is responsible for the team scoring. The receiver is important too. He blocks and looks for the quarterback to throw the ball so he can score. Sometimes the receiver has not positioned himself for clearance to receive the ball. He must strategically position himself so the quarterback can throw the winning touchdown and score.
On this Father's Day, we must remember that life can sometimes cause Dad to fumble. Allow a few misses, especially if the quarterback mis-throws the ball. There are sill yards, firstdowns, and quarters remaining that can be gained for recovery. Team effort brings winning results everytime and everyone want's to be on a winning team.
On this Father's Day, let's remember it's not how you start, but, how you finish!
