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.

Yoko Ono Lennon
for Father’s Day 19th June 2011

MY DADDY IS BEAUTIFUL

MY DADDY IS BEAUTIFUL is a tribute
to all Fathers of the World
from each of your children;
A celebration of the love that nurtures us all.

WHAT TO DO

Upload your father’s photo to
our Facebook groupFlickr group, Instagram or Twitter.
Add the tag #mydaddyisbeautiful.

Write his name
a note about him, to him and to yourself.

If it gets to be a love letter,
a poem or a very long message
or as long as a novel (!)
that’s fine.

Make sure to squeeze him with big hugs and kisses in your mind
and send it with a sprinkle of  i ii iii
