Happy Father's Day

There are a lot of great guys out there who do what they do to take great care of their families. They genuinely love their kids and would do almost anything for them.

It doesn't always seem like it. We hear so much about the ones who shirk their responsibilities, who put themselves first and even some who do the unthinkable: they murder their families. Those are the ones that make the headlines and the nightly news. Not the stand-up guys, who, day in, day out, do the right thing. And they do it, not only because it IS the right thing, but because they love their families so much, they couldn't imagine doing it any other way.

Here's to you guys. The unsung heroes of today's families. I can't count my own father among this minority, but I've been lucky enough to have a handful of men in my life show me that the minority exists and that it really does take an extraordinary guy to be a dad.

Great big hugs to all of you on your special day!
