Father's Day will be here in a blink of an eye and around the Fuentes household, we are busily preparing to have everyone over. I am really excited about what I got my husband--it is something he has been wanting since his childhood. He has no idea he is getting it and I can't wait to surprise him!
I thought I would share some inspirational quotes that you could share with your husband or father to encourage them on their special day. Dad's do so many great things that go missed day to day so it is nice when we get a chance to honor them and thank them for all they do.
Here they are:
None of the things I remember about my father had anything at all to do with his lifestyle of whom he knew or the places he had been or the style of the clothes he wore. I just knew that he was always there. -Cal Thomas
A father carries pictures where his money used to be. -Author Unknown
There is no more vital calling or vocation for men than fathering. -John Throop
Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him Father! -Lydia M. Child
Children's children are the crown of old men and the glory of children are their fathers. -Proverbs 17:6
My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person--he believed in me. -Jim Valvano
One night a father overheard his son pray, "Dear God, make me the kind of man my daddy is."---Later that night, the father prayed, "Dear God, make me the kind of man my son wants me to be. -Anonymous
F...You are my friend.
A...You are my ally.
T...You are my teacher.

E...You are my example.
R...You are my rock.
HERE ARE A FEW FUN WAYS TO CELEBRATE FATHER'S DAY
1. TAKE HIM TO A DINNER AND A MOVIE
Or any other thing he loves to do going out, or if he likes staying home make him his favorite meal and cuddle up under a blanket and watch some Netflix.
2. TAKE HIM TO THE GREAT OUTDOORS
If you man is an outdoorsman go hiking, camping, boating, sports game, or whatever his favorite thing might be!
3. HONOR HIM WITH A PARTY/GET-TOGETHER
Make it as simple as a cookout or fancier. If you invite several people you can even honor more dads at once. One year we did this and had a cake that said "HONORING FATHERHOOD" on it and took a group picture with all the dads. The kids read short poems about fatherhood and make a collage of pictures with dad and even grandpa. Grandpa gave a teary eyed, heart-felt speech afterwards and there wasn't a dry eye in the house when he was done.
4. GIVE HIM TIME TO HIMSELF TO REST
Sometimes Dads work themselves to the bone and don't really get time to rest. Give him some time to read, kick up his feet, watch his favorite movie/show, or take a long needed nap. When he wakes up pour him a nice big glass of iced tea and give him a back rub!
5. HAVE HIS FAMILY OVER
If he is a family man be sure to invite his family over so they can share in the fun. Have some games and dessert and enjoy the day.
