Kindness Revolution Day 19: Be Thankful for Dad
Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there!† It seems a natural fit for me to focus on my dad this weekend.† He’s a kindhearted, hard-working, and gentle man who has always put family first.† I can’t be with my dad on Father’s Day because he lives about 4000 miles away, but I am making the effort to send him a card (I gave him his Father’s Day gift early this year) and phone him to let him know that I care about and appreciate him.† He’s the best dad I could have asked for and I want him to know how much I love him.
Perhaps you could make an effort to express gratitude to your dad or another father-figure you’ve had in your life.† If your dad has passed on, perhaps you could silently share your love and appreciation for the time you had together.† Or, if your relationship with your father has been a strained or abusive one, perhaps you can take some time today to find forgiveness…even a little.
If youíre just joining us for the Kindness Revolution, Iím trying to spread kindness in the world by giving 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book 29 Gifts.† And, Iím asking you to join me.† If youíre just tuning in, check out the first blog in this series.† And, don’t forget that it’s never too late to join the Kindness Revolution.† Start today!
And, donít forget to add your comments to my blog because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, Iíll be giving away more free copies of my books† next Saturday!† Winners will be selected from the comments!
