Every year, without fail, my two siblings and I forgot all about father's-day (and any other holiday or date that did not involve us personally receiving presents). My mother always covered us on those things. somehow he would always get a present from each of us. I'd be as surprised as him to see what he got from me. Of course she would always have us sign a card which made us feel included. Collecting cards from events is one of mom's things; I'm sure she has every father's-day card I ever gave to dad.
I am most thankful that my father is healthy, fit, and happy. We live on the same family land so I see him regularly and my sons are able to spend time with him too. He is without a doubt one of the most important figures in our lives. I love my father :)
