There's no set way.
There's no preparation that will ever be enough.
There's no getting everything right all of the time.
There is self-belief and prayer.
There is understanding, support and patience.
There will be growth where you sow.
There will be prosperity where you nurture.
There will be strength and resilience if you guide.
There will be confidence and happiness where you lead.
Any dude can become a dad, but, it takes a remarkably selfless, hearty, open-minded, dedicated, conscientious, loyal, forward-thinking, responsible and loving man to be a father. Don't put any pressure on yourself to be the superhero you know you'll never be. Simply do the very best you can, with what you have, as you learn and know that you are appreciated, imperfections and all. You've got this!
Although I'm not one for this particular season, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to you - the man who chooses to set aside his pride and ego so as to raise his child, or children, freely, with affection, time, cuddles, laughs, sweet reminders of just how important their life is in your own, an abundance of love and then some! God bless you.
To the mother's making every effort to step in and step up in place of father's who, for whatever reason, are absent, I respectfully salute each of you! You're doing the best you can and that's more than enough! ♡
