sixty years is a milestone afterall and dads, i mean really, really good ones, deserve to be celebrated.
i think there are far to few of the good ones in this world. the ones who lead by example and in time, have sons who grow up to be really great husbands. of course moms have so much to do with it- but there is something to be said for the really good men who help shape really good men.
so fathers of the world, if you're reading this, the best thing you can do for your sons is to be a great man/husband/friend, so that someday, when your boys settle down, they know what it takes to make a really happy home and be an all around good dude too.
happy 60th birthday to my father-in-law. one of the really, really good dudes.
