The Easiest & Hardest Gift to Give on Father’s Day

Posted By Jessica Fisher On June 18, 2011 @ 1:43 am In Holidays,Marriage and Romance,Promotions | Comments Disabled

Last month we talked about how easy it is to give mom a bottle of perfume instead of an act of service [4]. Service costs us something more than money. And it’s difficult.

The same kind of thing applies to celebrating our husbands on Father’s Day. True, the “holiday” is about children acknowledging their fathers, but it’s also about moms recognizing their partners in this gig we call parenthood.

Encouraging our husbands, honoring them, and giving them our time and attention is more important than any tie, barbeque, or even a day free to watch all the sports they want [5].

Encouraged husbands and fathers are a blessing to their families in return.

[6] In the weeks leading up to Father’s Day, I’ve been collaborating with a great group of bloggers to share ideas on how to “honor the man they call daddy.”

The Gift of YOU

This week we talked about the gift of time, your time.

It’s all too easy to get caught up in our womanly pursuits, that we forget to just chill – with our husbands.

Earlier in the week, I shared five things I’ve learned about marriage and the power of simply being together [7]. I was pleasantly surprised by the swell of comments; apparently we struck a chord there. :)

Check out what the other ladies had to say:

Other Ways to Love that Man

Over the last few weeks we’ve talked about a number of topics to inspire you in your relationship with “the man they call Daddy.” If you missed those, you may want to pop around and catch up. I promise you’ll have at least one “a-ha” moment.

My Husband Rocks

FishPapa is too modest. When he saw me in this shirt, he teasingly said, “Because I play the guitar?” Haha. But, truly, he does — rock AND play the guitar.

I love my husband and I love this shirt! So soft and comfortable — with a saying that speaks volumes, and not the rock music kind.

It’s available in a number of colors and styles. I chose the fitted shirt which runs extremely small. So, check the sizing chart and don’t be afraid to order an XL. Really.

The also have “my dad rocks” shirts to buy for your kids. Use the code U28ARW10 to get 10% off your order [15].
