Being the Dad! Reflecting on Father’s Day

1978, Me and My Dad

What a day, for Fathers! Whether you’re a GrandFather, GodFather, Father or StepFather in your title, it’s something special to be a “DAD”! So, If you’re one of those, I’m talking to you!

Today, I’m giving a shout out to all you DADs out there! To the unsung heroes of the family, silently putting themselves out there for the sacrifice and safety of their families.  For the ones investing in your kid’s lives and giving it all for those they love.

We want so much for our kids don’t we? We want them to have a better life, better future, a better world. We really want them to LISTEN to us for their own safety and pass on the wisdom which we learned from our fathers and the many more trips around the sun than they’ve had! We definitely don’t want them to  make the same goofy mistakes we’ve made.

It’s Tough Sometimes!

It’s not always appreciated though is it being a dad? I get it.  Our kids don’t always appreciate all the work and efforts or the worrying or the love we’ve given over the years until much later in life.

Well, keep doing it dads!  We gotta keep being the role model they need. Dads have to Keep pouring into their lives, if not who will? The TV, social media, bad influencers?   Keep that chin up Dad, It’s worth it.  Maybe not in your expected time, but in God’s timing, have patience and keep, keeping on!

But wait there’s more!

Let’s just say, you haven’t been the best dad. Due to whatever happened or for whatever reason and maybe it’s even your fault; you always have today to change for the better! You have today to initiate the healing, to let forgiveness begin. Plant the seed of love and kindness in their hearts and be gentle with them… Our kids are worth it.  Make those hard, Selfless Changes to “Be the Dad”!!!

Daddy Issues

And for all of us as children, If you haven’t seen or spoken to your dad, reach out, send a note, give ’em a call or better yet a HUG! You too can always make today the day you change for the better for your relationship with your Dad. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.. Even if they don’t show it all the time!

Nobody needs “daddy issues”!  And, Nobody’s perfect, not even you.  We all suck sometimes and bitterness can build walls better than any contractor out there!  So, send some love & kindness to your Dad. It’s healing for everyone…

That’s a Wrap!

I appreciate my dad! We don’t have some TV picture perfect relationship, but I know he taught me what he could in the best way he knew how. Sometimes working up to three jobs. He loved and loves me and my sisters in the ways he knows how and provided for us always..

So, to all you dads out there, Congrats! Thanks for being the dad!  What a blessing to pass on to your kids showing them the role model they need in life.  Keep it Up! It’s worth it in the end!

That’s all I got for now….. Happy Father’s Day

American Fail

I think we all agree that it’s time for conservatives to go on OFFENSE!

PolitiCrossing founder, Chris Widener, is announcing the launch of the American Freedom Tour, featuring Donald Trump Jr, Dinesh D’Souza, Kayleigh McAnany, Sheriff David Clarke and many more in Jacksonville, Florida Oct 9th! The American Freedom Tour already has a number of dates scheduled throughout the country. Be sure to check out their website to see the cities and buy your tickets by clicking RIGHT HERE.

For the last five years, conservatives have been told how bad they are. They’ve been told how bad America is. They’ve been called horrible names. They’ve been called xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, sexist, racist, and every other malicious name, some of which can’t even be written for a family audience. The American freedom Tour is gone to set that straight! We have watched our cities destroyed and burned to the ground. We have seen our historical monuments torn down. At the American Freedom Tour, we are going to loudly proclaim that America is the greatest country on the face of the earth! This is a pro-America, pro-freedom, pro-family, pro-faith, and pro-capitalism event. We are going to take the message of the greatness of America across our country in city after city. Do not miss this event! For all the information and to buy your tickets, click HERE.

“Conservatives are tired of being on the sidelines and being told they can’t be part of the game,” Widener said. “They are tired of being told how bad America is. The American Freedom Tour is designed to celebrate America and how great our country is. We are going to take this tour all over America to declare that we will not let go of the American Dream! We are going to promote conservative ideals in each and every city we go to, because conservative ideas are what will save America from the growing tyranny that we face each and every day.”

So, bring your family and friends and come celebrate America with us in a city near you with America’s top conservative thinkers, media personalities, authors, speakers and politicians! Check out the full schedule HERE!
