Whether you live close to or far away from your dad, this Sunday is the perfect occasion to let him know just how much you appreciate him. It’s easy to get caught up in the stress and pressure of your own life and to forget how important it is to let those you love know how much they mean to you. Now that I am working a 9-5 job and am really tired when I get home, I appreciate even more how my parents were able to work and raise a family. I truly don’t know how they gathered the energy to make sure I did my homework, take me to sports practices or friends’ houses, cook dinner, clean the house, etc. Maybe you’ve had some sort of similar realization.
Whatever the case, take this weekend to do something for your dad. It doesn’t have to be anything big, parents seem to think the smallest gestures mean the most. So send a card, send him his favorite candy, give him a call. Whatever you decide, let him know you love and appreciate him! It’s likely that you wouldn’t have made it this far in your educational career without him.
