Face it, a big part of marriage involves raising kids. They have a way of consuming all of our time and energy, if we let them. This is why priorities must be established in order to keep our marriages strong and healthy during the child-rearing years.
There will be a day when our kids are grown and move away. Every mom tears up when she considers this thought. Every dad shutters when he considers walking his daughter down the aisle to place her hand in another’s. This is life. It slows down for no one, but it is perfectly measured so we can find the rhythm and walk with purpose and stride–confident that what we do each day matters.
I recently discovered a video that celebrates what being a Dad looks like in very practical, everyday sort of ways. It’s powerful, fun, will make you laugh, but most importantly will make you think. It may even make you want to run out and buy a box of Peanut Butter Cheerios just to support this great commercial!
Do you know how to dad? This guy gets it…
Forward this post to all the dads you know, and thank them for their willingness to be all this and more. Let’s celebrate the men who know how to dad!
