Act 166

True gifts can’t be bought.

My dad used to ask for world peace when we asked him what we should buy him for Father’s Day. A bit tricky to fill that request, so we’d settle on a golf shirt or a tie. Poor Dad.

I think what he was really saying was you can’t buy good wishes or appreciation. You just have to show it by being a decent human being. And that’s the real gift of Father’s Day – a parent’s commitment to raise good kids who become good grown ups. Well that, and a bit of world peace.

Happy Father’s Day
