There's a special day on the calendar to remember our fathers. 

It's the day we set aside to remind children-of all ages-to remember their father in some way.  There are many ways we can demonstrate appreciation for the father in our lives, whether it be gifts, cards or favorite meals.  While all well-intentioned, I'd suggest there's perhaps a simpler way to express appreciation. 


Here's what I am going to do, later today I'm going to extend a hand to my father and look him in the eye and tell him, "I am proud and glad to be your son."  It's a few simple words, packed with the wisdom, courage, work ethic and enthusiasm shared during a lifetime.

To all fathers, enjoy this special day and, "Happy Father's Day."

Best regards,

Jason Thompson
