“Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.”

“Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.” ~ proverb

 

“It takes 9 months to become a father”.  I’ve heard that quote many times over.  Dads have it tough.  There’s no doubt about it.  It’s a man’s world but the Queen Ruler pulls the strings, raises the kids and keeps the calendar of appointments straight. 

Our children are only at this moment…right now…no going back.  Happy Father’s Day.

The Human Element, moments in our lives, time, live each day

 “This moment deserves your full attention, for it will not pass this way again.” ~ ThinkExist.com

“We are young and we are trying to fill big shoes.  We have got to learn to walk in those shoes but they are trying to run.” ~ David Lane

The Human Element, moments in our lives, time, live each day

“Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

~ Khalil Gibran
