This Father’s Day, my own father, now 91, will attend his first Father’s Day celebration with his kids ever!
What is there to celebrate?
Those of us fortunate to have had dads who were loving, caring role models who were involved in our lives have much to be thankful for. That is only sometimes the case. I think of fathers as strong, loving, kind, protective, forward-thinking, and always having their children’s best interests at heart. My dad was an amazing problem solver. There was almost nothing he couldn’t find a solution for, and often it meant thinking outside the box, as he would say.
Thank you, Dad, for passing on so many wonderful traits. I was learning by example. You showed me how to be a strong man, how to stand for principles, and to stand for the truth, even when it was dangerous or inconvenient to do so. As you have grown older, I see you more thoughtful, gentle, compassionate, and able to listen so beautifully.
As I have gotten older, I realize how important the father’s role is to be there for my children and grandchildren. For much of my adult life as a father, I was overly focused on providing food and shelter and did not nurture the heart and soul of my children. I’m sad for the time I’ve lost, but now I know, it’s never too late to be nourishing and loving even as they become adults.
When we are hurting, regardless of age, we need compassion and companionship most. Thank you to all in our world who have shown us love and compassion and sat with us when we were hurting.
If you haven’t had a nurturing father relationship in your life, I encourage you to find that love, support, and nurture in the adult(s) who come into your world. We can all be that person for someone else.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there who are striving to be there for their children.
Thank you to all the moms, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends who also fulfill that role.

The Vaccine-Friendly Plan is a place to start researching your decision on whether or not to vaccinate according to the CDC recommendations.
Dr. Paul's book, The Vaccine-Friendly Plan, may not align with his latest findings on the Vaxxed-Unvaxxed data. However, it still serves as a valuable tool for those who follow the CDC schedule. The book offers peer-reviewed information encouraging parents and guardians to think critically about vaccine decisions. While Dr. Paul cautions against following the Vaccine-Friendly Plan, it can still be a helpful resource for those seeking a starting point for their vaccine journey.
Dr. Paul's research: https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/22/8674/pdf, though wrongfully retracted as shown in this study: Revisiting Excess Diagnoses of Illnesses and Conditions in Children Whose Parents Provided Informed Permission to Vaccinate clearly shows that those children who were not vaccinated were much healthier than those who followed the Vaccine-Friendly Plan.
Opiate addiction is the single most significant public health crisis facing Americans—it affects over 2 million people and kills 115 of them every day.
