My most favorite thought about my dad is how he treats me.
Ever since I was a little girl, he has always told me how pretty I am or that I look great. This may of been true then, but he has continued to say these life affirming things even as I gained much too much weight for a short girl during my pregnancies and when I have looked the "frazzled" mom part much too often.
Now that I am reading Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James Dobson, he suggest that fathers as well as mothers do what my father did for me.
It is so hard to raise our girls today, but how easy it is to give a quick compliment here and there to them.
For my dad and all the other dads and surrogate dads who keep trying, Happy Father's Day!
