What is a Father?
by Guest Blogger Shannon Sonneveldt
There are so many men who have and continue to step into the role of father, role model, and/or mentor for those who don’t have an active father in their life. They may be a step-father, an uncle or other relative, a friend or just someone who saw a need and stepped in to fill it out of a place of genuine love and caring.
This Father’s Day, think of all the men in your life who have played and continue to play an important role in your life. Celebrate them and all they have done and added to your life. A father is so much more than the biological, it is the love and connection of all those men in your life who have encouraged and helped you, who set you on the right path, and who have helped you become the person you are. Let’s all take the time this Father’s Day to let each of these very special men know how much they are appreciated for taking an interest and loving us unconditionally!
A Part of Me
We weren’t born a part of each other
But through the twists and turns of life
Our paths came together
You became a member of our family
And many years have passed
We have fought and argued
Disagreements darken our past
But through it all you’ve stuck by us
Always there to help us through
You always helped us out of the jams
And the messes we got into
You’ve loved us like a father
A fact that can’t be denied
So I return your love with a heart
That’s full and bright
No, we weren’t born of the same blood
But we became part of the same family
It was fate that brought our lives together
And love that makes you a part of me
