Father’s Day: A tribute to the hero in your life.

Happy Father’s Day!

I have two heroes in my life: my father and my husband. Both are wonderful fathers and both are step-fathers. They are everything a father needs to be–loving, supportive, and parents.

My mom and biological father divorced when I was two years old.  I never knew him and from what my mom says, I wasn’t missing much. This was verified by my older half sister who did know him.  Two years later my mom remarried. My step-father is my “daddy”. Yes, at 39 I still call him daddy. He stepped in and raised me as his own. Even when he and my mom had two more children, he still treated me as his biological child. I was loved like the others and grounded like the others.

My husband did the same with my kids. He came into our lives and loved and disciplined my kids like they were his. Hubby had never had kids of his own. He really never considered it, but he loves mine and claims them as his.

It doesn’t take biology to make a man a father. It takes patience, love, and an open heart to be a “daddy”.  My heroes past on their love and strength. I’m grateful to have them in my life.

If your “daddy” is no longer with you, embrace his loving memory today and remember what made him your hero.

  2. Wonderful post! You are so right — it doesn’t take a biology to make a father — it takes the love & caring of a real man — a hero.

    Terrific post. You couldn’t have said it any better. Any man can father a child, but a dad is the man who gives you his heart.

    God bless step-parents. I don’t think we thank them enough for being there for their families 100%. Great post. 😀
