Happy Father’s Day

“Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a Dad.” — Anne Geddes The idea of a special day to celebrate & honor fatherhood was first introduced in the United States. In US, Father’s Day has been celebrated since June, 1910. It is celebrated on third Sunday of June every year. Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the addition that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. Fathers are the ones who taught us everything from riding a bike to doing our own taxes. In short, they are our first superheroes. A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a snail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows the way. Dad has just as demanding  role to play in the lives of his children, beyond just carrying the mantle of leadership. A father builds that same sense of unwavering security. That father can be rigid, yes, but always in a loving way. Rectification and correction may come, but he never speaks out of disapproval. His children feel safe. A father is one who understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage us. And daughters and fathers always share a special bond which complements the perfect saying by daughters that “I may find my prince, but my dad will always be my king.” We can’t be in this world without our fathers. No matter how excellent or successful we are, but our first identity is that of someone’s son or daughter. Salute to all dads! Shop your perfect gift for father’s day here....
