Liberated To Be A Father
This Father's Day, I spend moments reflecting on my own fatherhood ... and how to get better at it. If there's one thing that I'd like to say to my kids, I'd say, "I love you, Christine, Paul, Angel, forever. I'm not a perfect Dad, but I'm always willing and ready to change." The love of my Father in heaven liberates me to be a "different" Dad to my three kids. As a father, I learned lessons about not saddling my kids with baggage from my relationship with my own earthly father. Truly, because of my own personal relationship with my Father in heaven, my striving to be "different" to my kids allows me to see the bad along with the good ... that pushes me to see what can be learned from a legacy in order to grow better by my own kids. Happy Father's Day!
