I was lucky enough, blessed really, to marry a man.

I hope that together we were able to teach our sons to be men.

Our prayer is that -when the time comes- our daughters will also marry men.

Men are different than grown boys.

Men understand the family, their place in it, and those they love. Men always do the right thing. Men sacrifice for the betterment of the family, both for their wife and their children. Men forgive. Men work honestly and earnestly. Men stand for what is true and right and honourable. Men defend, protect and provide. Men humble them selves before God. Men remember always who they really are. Men have eternal perspective. Men lead and guide and serve with a happy heart. Men are grateful, compassionate, generous, and see what isn't always visible, hear what isn't always spoken. Men pray and seek righteous knowledge. Men make goals and constantly learn. Men are kind.

Happy Father's Day today to all the good men in the world.
