Anyone who knows me knows that I am passionate, sometimes overzealous person, for the things that I believe. Before Father’s Day, this year that side of my personality poked its evil little head out and I stuck my foot too far down my throat. I hurt some feelings and offended others. That was not my intent. So first let me say that I sorry if my comments specifically hurt any of you in a personal way. I humbly offer my sincerest apologies and beg your grace and forgiveness. Also, I need to remind myself that when a person praises their single mother on father’s day that it does not detract from who I am as a father or the praise I receive on that day (Just like a student getting a specific grade in a class does not detract from my accomplishments). My passion got in the way of my message and my tone certainly did not help one bit. Father’s are important; everyone can agree with that statement. Mothers are equally important, but they cannot and are not the same thing. A father cannot be a mother, just as a mother cannot be a father. Let’s give the men who were real fathers all the love and respect they deserve on father’s day. And if some mother gets praised I’ll just keep my mouth shut.
If you have any comments please direct them to my Wordpress blog as I do not check Facebook anymore.
Thanks for listening. Question? Comments? Concerns? Class dismissed!!!
