HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!

I know that our kids will be blessing you on this day.
Usually, we women, wearing many hats,
Tend to leave it to our kids to bless you.
But I’d like to make a point for this Father’s Day
That we, women, appreciate and bless you, too.

For centuries, we have been in love with you.
We love you for what you are and respect you for trying to do your best.
Because we women are an intelligent, strong and powerful race of people,
Sometimes you must find us intimidating.
But fear not.

We are in your corner.
We are your partners in life.

We share and understand your struggle and your effort
to stay wise and clear in our rapidly changing society.
We, especially, respect you for your decision
to commit yourselves to being fathers.
It is a very tough decision to make in today’s world
in which constant adjustment of your ideas and actions are demanded of you.

I don’t know if we ever thanked you.
So here it is: Thank you, and we love you.

from each of your children;
A celebration of the love that nurtures us all.

or as long as a novel (!)
that’s fine.

and send it with a sprinkle of  i ii iii

Because It took much too long for my request to join this group to be approved, Father's Day in Sweden has come and gone, but this still rings true. ❤️

When I think about my father, primarily three things come to mind: his musicality, his intelligence, and his passion. Although he is retired now, he was a music teacher for his entire life and made sure every corner of my childhood was filled with music. From him, I get my diverse musical taste.

Because of his musicality, I possess the valuable knowledge that musical labels are unnecessary and useless because there is only good music and bad music: music that speaks to you, and music that doesn't. Because of his intelligence, my intellect is regularly nurtured through the many conversations and debates we always share - even when we don't always agree. And because of his passion for his passions - tennis, music, and his children - I know that those that have a fire within, will always make the world a better place by following their calling.

My father is an artist, a survivor, and a blessing. He is always there to offer love, support, and help, and I consider myself lucky to know him not only as a parent...but as a human being. Happy Father's Day, dad! I love you. <3

Love always,
Your Daughter
