Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers in the world! Know that your love, support, guidance and encouragement has forever impacted others lives.
Parents are role models for children to learn how to be and act. They help mold our thoughts and dreams, ambitions and desires. Through their words and actions, we internalize and make decisions for our futures.
My father loved to fish. He would go out with his brother on the lake many times. It was always interesting that when he returned, there were no fish!!!! When I asked where they were, he would say I tossed them back into the water. I had a hard time understanding this practice. It wasn’t until we went out together years later that I understood. Being out on the boat, on the water, was his “Happy Place.” It was his “escape” from the world, from his business. A time to truly be with himself. The quiet, calmness, peacefulness of being one with nature was truly special. It was his way of recharging his Spirit.
I too find peace and comfort out in nature. Now, I give thanks for living at the beach, enjoying running along the water’s edge, feeling the sand below, watching the seagulls, dolphins, surfers and others. It is my “Happy Place.” What is your “Happy Place?”
I give thanks to my Dad for showing me how important it is to take the time to refresh and recharge.
With LIght and Love,
