If I am honest with myself I would say that being a father is probably one of the most challenging things to be in the world. Most times Im not sure what Im doing right. I’m kind of learning as I go along, and I always worry if I am imparting some type of life lesson to my children that they can benefit from. Fatherhood is not easy.
My oldest son called me yesterday he just turned 21 and he said “Whats Up Pops, what you doing tomorrow for fathers day?” I told him I wasn’t sure and that I felt like people really don’t make a big deal out of Fathers day. Then he said “Well if they dont make a big deal about it, Im going to make a big deal about it!” Then we talked some more and ended the phone call as we do most times saying that we love each other.
It was in that moment that I knew I didn’t have to be perfect. My bank account didn’t have to be bursting the seams. I didn’t always have to have the answers. All I ever need to provide to my children is a sincere and true love. This love is what motivates us to do better.
If we look at Cliff Huxtable (Cosby Show) and James Evans (Good Times) as characters their lives are totally different. One lives in his upper middle class home in Brooklyn. The other lives with his family in poverty in a Chicago housing project. Cliff is a doctor. James is a handy man. These two individuals are from totally different spectrums of life; however the one thing they have in common is the love they have for their children. This love translates into these life lessons that help to shape our children, it becomes our bond.
So with that I want to say HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all my friends and family out here who are Dads. You dont have to be perfect you just have to be there to share your love.

We have been friends for almost 40 years and although times have changed, we remain the same. Maleness is who we are, but Fathers is what we’ve become. I am proud to call you my friend and even prouder to share a fatherhood kinship! Love believes all things, endures all things…Love conquers all!! I propose this…every man is willing to die for his children, but it takes a FATHER to live for them!! Be well, and keep loving…
