Dad’s Appreciation Day
Father’s Day is approaching, and I look forward to celebrating the day with Seth and Marc….and we’ll see my dad tomorrow for lunch.
I know it shouldn’t take a holiday to show appreciation for your mate, but sometimes in the day-to-day of life, it’s easy to get caught up in stuff and not really take the time.
While I try to live in the moment, it’s not something that comes super easily to me. I often think of doing special things to show my appreciation for Marc….and sometimes I do….but surely not often enough.
I asked Marc what he wanted to do on Father’s Day. And, he said, sleep in, go for a bike ride, and possibly spend time walking around the West Village of Manhattan, and eat out.
But, more importantly than what we choose to do, is to step back and really be grateful for what he does for our family and to recognize that not everyone is as fortunate. There are plenty of single moms in this world who work hard doing it on their own. And, there are those in a marriage where their partner might not be all that hands on or emotionally or physically available.
I’m not saying that Marc is perfect…though he is a mensch….so that is pretty darn good. Mensches (decent person) have always rated high on my list of desirable mate qualities. :)
What I do know is that he loves us with all his heart and that his family comes first, and in the long run, what could be more important than that?!
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!!
