Happy Father’s Day to fathers everywhere

As you experience this special day to recognize fathers, I hope that you are receiving much joy and happiness.

Phil Lenea IMG_4282 Father’s Day gives us the opportunity to make memories or share memories with those we love.

Father’s are very important figures in our lives, as I said in my post yesterday about my father.

In a Fatherhood Town Hall meeting in the East Room of the White House on Thursday, President Obama said that we all know the difference that a responsible, committed father can make in the life of a child:

Fathers are our first teachers and coaches. They’re our mentors and they're our role models. They set an example of success and they push us to succeed; encourage us when we’re struggling; and they love us even when we disappoint them, and they stand by us when nobody else will.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Father’s Day. It’s important to take the time to celebrate the significant work fathers do in contributing to families, which are the backbone of our communities.
