Sunday Blessings - Father's Day
Welcome to Sunday Blessings! I would love for you to share your own blessing on your blog and link to this one, but I can never get the Mr. Linky link to put the box here for everyone to link too. I will gladly read any links that anyone shares in the comments below.
Blessings come each day if we are just willing to see them. Open our eyes to the many good things that happen daily and try to allow them to override the bad. I believe many times we concentrate on the negatives in life till we can't see the blessings anymore.
These days it seems that the world has gone crazy and each day we hear more about racial divide in our country as well as the tensions in Washington, political agendas, wars, terrorism, and all the other bad in the world. The good gets overlooked, which is sad!
It doesn't matter to me what race you are, what your sexual preference is or what nationality you are, there is a place on the Earth for you, God loves you, and you are a human being the same as I am! Be a law abiding citizen and a productive member of society and treat others with respect! There truly is no reason to be so divided in this country. I may not agree with you on all aspects of life and that is perfectly okay.
For my blessing today, I want to speak of Father's Day! A day to honor the man (or woman that filled a father's role) that guided you and taught you what was expected of you in life.
I was not blessed with a kind and loving father. My father was an alcoholic and abusive, but I learned many things from him. I learned what kind of man I would not marry! I learned that alcohol is an evil for many! I learned that my grandfather was a complete gentleman and that if all men were like him, life would be so much less complicated.
I was blessed that my father and I were able to reconnect after many years and he had stopped drinking and we had a decent relationship.Memories made it hard to forgive him and I could never forget what he had done, but I was able to move on and have a relationship with him.
I am blessed to have the man walking beside me in life that has been a good father to our children. He adopted our oldest at 8 years old and has taught her so many things. He has helped our youngest at times that he truly was so mad he wanted to beat her, but he was able to realize that life doesn't always go as planned and that he had to get past the anger to move ahead and enjoy life as it was.
He has a son that has grown into a wonderful young man. He is respectful, hard working, and very determined to make a good life for himself. I am so proud of him. His dad was not always in his life due to no reason on his own, but he still has a great respect for his dad and knows that life threw challenges, which Dad overcame and has now written out of his life completely.
To all the fathers out there, may I say Happy Father's Day!
