Gratitude for Dad

Dad: the masculine force that brought you into this world. 

Take a moment right now to contemplate one positive childhood experience with your father. Was it building & launching model rockets? Going to the movies on a Saturday afternoon–and sneaking into a double feature? Flying a kite at the beach? His supportive shouts from the sidelines of a soccer game? A bed-time story? Helping you move into college on Day One? Is the memory a classic activity like fishing or football? Or is it cooking or shadowing him at work for a day?

We all have–or had–a father. Right now, for just one minute, think about a positive experience you had with him. Where was it? How old were you? Be specific. What did you hear, smell, feel? How did you see him then?

Now pick up the phone and call him. Share your memory, and share the gratitude you feel. If he’s no longer around, take one more minute and just give him some positive thoughts.
