"The Love Of A Father"

This video (see below for the link) captures more about the essence of a father's love, about a father's presence in a child's life, than any words I could write. Today we celebrate the special love of fathers, along with all the other men in our lives who have empowered, inspired and formed us into the people we are today. Love is what creates the sacred space for us to risk becoming all that we are called to be. As you watch the video, note the sacred space that this father has created for his daughter to discover her unique voice, her unique sense of who she is called to be. This father has a particular musical gift that he shares with his daughter. We may not have this gift, but we each have our own gifts, our own unique ways that we can love and enrich the people in our lives. As we give thanks today for the love of fathers and other men who have loved us, may we be inspired by this video to keep passing that love along to our family and friends. Happy Father's Day!
