It is coming. Just around the corner once again. This Sunday in fact. The one time a year many feel comfortable letting their Father know he is handy to have around.. even appreciated a bit
So… no neck ties, unless he really likes them. No bags of grass seed or a coupon for the car wash.
Probably not flowers either, or a case of beer.
not a watch or a new shirt, cool hammer or wrench that does 43 things….
oh you can take him out for lunch or dinner, but that isn’t it either.
a card you chose with so much care.. is nice.. but no. (but get it anyway, he will like it)
gift certificates, candies, wine.. nope, nope and nope.
what then? what is the perfect gift?
*nods* I can tell you.
You walk up to him, nice and quiet, a big grin on your face please. Wrap your arms around him gently and look him in the eyes. Stare for a moment, let your love flow between you.. then whisper loud enough so he can hear… “I love you Dad.”
