A lot of people see father´s day and mother´s day as merely commercial, a day made to annoy people and to ¨have to¨give presents.... just another Sunday to get by. But when I hear that father´s day and/or mother´s day is every day, I know it is not true.... I don´t tell my dad how much I love him everyday, how he really is the best grandpa ever!, nor I tell my mom how thankful I am to have her in my life, or that I really don´t know what I would have done without her, or that she has really and truly helped me give the best advice no one could ever give me in times when me or my daughters have needed it.
We get so involved in our everyday lives, and so accustomed to the stresses of raising a family, to the nice things about it, to the laughter, and to the tears, to the nights with too many little hours of sleep, to never having time to watch more than a tv show per night because I surely fall asleep, we get used to going to the beach and look like a life guard all day looking after three little souls playing in the water, and to all the little things we give up each day just to make it better for our children. But mostly we forget that the only other person in the whole wide world that would give his life for your children, that love them in the exactly same way as you do, is him, their father! So given that... I love these days! I do want them to be special and I do try to make them special! And I say as many I love yous, and as many thank yous as I can. I get dressed maybe a little nicer than any other day, the same for the girls, try to make a breakfast that pleases all of us, put a little music on, talk about things we have done, and about things we would like to do together.... and I try to take pictures in my head that will make me remember these moments forever!
So HAPPY FATHER´S DAY!!! It is a special day, Dads can change the world, and you Sweetie, you are the world to our girls.... so thank you!
