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

Last month we talked about how easy it is to give mom a bottle of perfume instead of an act of service. 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.

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

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. 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.

    I love your shirt! He rocks because he works hard for our 4 children and so I can be home. He never complained when I was trying to balance caring for my mom with cancer and our family. He had to really help out. Then we found out I carried the genetic mutation that caused my mom’s cancer and had to have 3 surgeries but again he was supportive and never complained about helping out.

  12. MichelleH says:

    My husband rocks because he loves us so completely. He works hard to provide, comes home with a smile, takes care of the house/vehicles/lawn, lets his daughter put barrettes in his hair, hugs and kisses his sons, wrestles and tickles all three, answers endless knock-knock jokes, and NEVER leaves the house without a kiss and ‘I love you’ for all of us. When I tell him how much I appreciate all these things (and more) his response is ‘I love you guys’. He thinks he’s nothing special. I think he’s amazing.

  13. Jennifer M says:

    My hubby rocks because he is all around awesome. He works hard so that I can stay home with the 3, soon to be 4, kiddos and he is a very loving and involved Dad as well.

  18. My husband rocks because he loves God first, then me and the kids. I have never met a more humble, unselfish or patient person than my husband.

  19. My husband thinks through and prays about so many things before he makes a decision. No status quo for us! I’m proud of his courage and desire to please God in all he does.

  20. My husband rocks because he works hard all day so I can stay home with our four children. And because he loves me!

  23. My husband rocks because he always buts myself and our 3 kids before himself. He has a work ethic like no other…he has been in the Army for 14 years and he has stayed in because it best takes care of our family financially. He has sacrificed a lot to always make sure our kids have everything they need and dont have to do without. He plays with the kids, spends lots of time with them, helps with homework, is ALWAYS their biggest fan…he is THE best father I could ever have chosen for my children!

    He loves me, with all my flaws, and he teaches the boys to be men who live true, real lives.

    My husband rocks because he’s the hardest working man I know. He works 8-12 hours a day at a very physically exhausting job and attends seminary classes when he can. He’s working so hard to provide well for his family and takes many opportunities to spend time alone with each of us.

  36. He rocks because he works 12 hour days most of the week and puts his keys down when he walks in and helps right away with our 5 kiddos. We have a special needs kid and he is always on board with therapies, meetings and listening to me whine and cry 🙂

After church, last father’s day, we quickly changed out of our dress clothes and into the new shirts while my husband was getting something for me out of the shed. 😉 When he came back inside, we were all lined up in the kitchen waiting for him. He LOVED it! I got tons of comments on my shirt throughout the rest of the year.

  46. There are many reasons why my husband rocks! A couple that stand out to me are that he doesn’t just support my decision to be a stay at home home, he truly values it, and he works very hard without complaining to make that possible. And I love that he has jumped on board the frugal train with me & supports me so in that! 🙂

  50. My husband rocks because he is SO GOOD at loving our son and I! He makes sure he carves time out to spend with each of us, and puts us first, despite having a very stressful job.

  78. Natalie Q. says:

    My husband rocks because he is supportive of my endeavors, even when they seem a little far-fetched. He’s sweet, funny, and always knows the right thing to say.

  90. My husband rocks because he works hard for his family. He was working 2 jobs and still made time for his family even though I know he was tired most days. And he still made sure that I had some time to myself. Thankfully those days are behind us. He’s the best dad I know.

Well, i’m not saying he is perfect, but he truly is the man I admired then. And he is still the guy i got chills from when thinking about doing life with God together. He has character & perseverance and tenderness – all which make for a hubby that rocks!

  99. shared the giveaway on my fb page!

  100. Dana Lewis says:

    My husband, Russ, rocks in many ways:

    He has more patience than any child deserves, he does the carpool thing morning and afternoons, he started a business a few years ago and has been quite successful, he is supportive of me in my career, and he has taken on a great deal of the cooking since I started a job where I work an 11 or 12 hour shift on the days I am scheduled. And creative cooking at that!

  101. Dana Lewis says:

    and now liked and shared on my page!

  102. My husband rocks because he supports me no matter what it is I want to do. Whether running a marathon or deciding to go back to school ten years later. He’s got my back.

  103. My husband rocks because he works really hard so that we can both have our ideal job. I stay home with our kiddos and he is making a living playing his accordion. When we started Pint Size Polkas no one would have believed it would work, but his schedule this summer (150 gigs in 2 1/2 months in 6 different states) shows that it did and that is willing to put in an amazing amount of effort to provide for us!

    We are missing him today on his day as he is in Georgia (we live in Wisconsin), but we aren’t wait to see him next Saturday!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  104. My husband rocks because he gives me constant support and encouragement as I try to manage my roles of wife/mama/nursing student/employee.

  105. My husband rocks because no one else on earth loves me like he does! He is a great example to all of our children.

  106. My husband rocks for a million reasons, but here are just a few…..he works VERY hard to provide for our family, he was worked very hard these last few months to get healthy and has lost 40 pounds, he is the best dad ever to my kids, he is a godly man and the leader of our home, he is oh, so handsome….I could go on and on and on….

  107. My husband rocks, because he proposed to me when I already had 4 1/2 kids! He stayed my friend through a 6-years-of-hell marriage, then offered to be “daddy” to my kids after a rape resulted in an unexpected pregnancy. He treats them all like his own AND gave me baby #6 (hopefully our last). He does way more than his share around the house, since I have several chronic illnesses, works to support us so I can stay home, and never complains about being overworked. No one could ask for a better man!

  108. My husband rocks because he knows the little things about me that show he cares. Always getting creamer because I like my coffee sweet, putting gas in the truck when I am low, helping with the kids when I’ve had a long day and no longer putting his belly button lint in the kitchen sink because it drives me crazy (and it’s gross)!

  109. Johanna says:

    My husband rocks in so many ways but this week he has waited on his family hand and foot! The reason? I gave birth to our 3rd child on Wednesday. His very own Father’s Day gift:)

  110. My husband rocks because he is a great father to our daughter, continues to support and encourage me always, and loves me in spite of my oh-too-evident flaws!

  111. My husband rocks because he’s not afraid to paint some toenails or style some hair. He loves and respects me and our girls. Very encouraging, supporting and loving!

  113. I already follow both on twitter. Love you and love this company.

  114. Following on facebook and shared the giveaway.

  115. My husband rocks because he seeks to serve his family in all he does.

  116. My husband is such a wonderful daddy to our three little girls. He reads them stories, tucks them in bed, prays with them, let’s them “help” him with his work and my list could go on! I trust him so much with them, such a privilege to leave for hours or even days and know they will be just fine.

  117. My hubby rocks because he works so hard so I can stay home with our babies!

  118. My husband rocks because when we got pregnant with our oldest we were 18 year old college students with no jobs. He turned it all around so that he could provide for our little family, and worked his butt off to get us where we are today, while all his friends were partying, responsibility-free. He knew what was important and still does.

  119. My husband rocks because he left his career to stay home full time with our kids. He is the most amazing man I know!

  120. My husband ROCKS because he leads our family to Jesus!

  121. Posted to Facebook!

  122. Jen Fitzpatrick says:

    I love this shirt! My husband rocks because whenever I am having a flare or a bad day, he is there to take care of the kids and the house.

  123. My husband rocks because he is so kind and caring.

  124. My husband rocks for soooo many reasons. Just to name a few….he cleans up after dinner, takes our young boys outside to play to give me some quiet moments alone, and loves to surprise me with date nights or gifts.

  125. He still makes me smile.

  126. My husband rocks because he loves me and our family. He’s always here for us, he lives a life that shows our boys how to be a man of God, and I’m so happy he’s my partner in life.

  128. My husband rocks because he gave up a career he loved to keep himself safe for his wife and children.

  129. My husband rocks because he is the most Christ-like person I have ever met. He has been the most amazing example to me and to our children. He knows who we really are — and he loves us anyway! And he loves us madly! He is so self-less and devoted, it’s truly a miracle. I am so thankful that he chose me to be his wife –15 years and counting!! 🙂

  130. Pamela J says:

    My husband rocks because he can always make me laugh even on those days when its the last thing I want to do.

  131. because he works his tail off so I can stay home with the crew

  132. My husband is so supportive. He loves me for me and always tells me so. He tells me I’m beautiful, even when I’m feeling anything but. He doesn’t care if I gain weight. He encourages me. He loves me. He takes such wonderful care of our two beautiful children. I could go on and on…He’s pretty great. 😉

  139. My husband is a great provider and father. And he is FUN!

  140. my hubbie ROCKS because he is always willing to change and grow with me, and he is always so patient with me!

  141. Candace says:

    My husband rocks because he thinks it’s fun to let the kids play in the mud. I need him to remind me that kids need to be kids because, quite frankly, I can be a stick in the mud sometimes (no pun intended).

  142. Dawn Davenport says:

    My husband rocks because he is so invested in our girls. I love to see his interaction with them on a daily basis. Such an amazing daddy!

  143. My husbands rocks because not only is he an awesome and loving husband, he is a wonderful father too. He works hard to provide for us so I can stay home with our three girls. He tells me he loves me every chance he gets but more than he shows me in many ways. He plays with his kiddos even tho he’s tired from a long day at work, listens to me talk as I unwind from my day and helps out at home whenever he can. Currently he’s deployed to Iraq. So I’m more thankful every day for all he does for us when he’s home after 8 months of doing it all on my own. He rocks!

  144. My husband seriously rocks–he lets me sleep in if I’m exhausted, he plays with the kids every evening, helps in the kitchen–pretty much anything our family needs!!

  145. Melanie says:

    My husband rocks because his favorite thing to do is to spend time with his family and he also does the dishes for me every night!

  146. My husband rocks because he is an amazing provider, husband and daddy. Being active duty military has it’s challenges and is very consuming, yet he still makes us feel loved and special.

  147. Denise G. says:

    My husband is truly amazing! He’s active duty in the Air Force, but still makes so much time to spend with our two children!!! He’s a wonderful, Godly example to myself and our kids!

  148. Tara Mc says:

    My husband rocks because he is not afraid of “poopy” diapers. I never have to remind him to take out the trash and because his corny sense of humor can always make me smile.

  149. My husband rocks because a few times a year I have to travel for work and he cares for our children as well as I do when I’m away.

  150. The main reason my husband rocks is that he is a man that consistantly goes to church with his family. I love this about him.

  151. TallyMichelle says:

  157. Katie T says:

    My husband rocks! He’s the most attentive, hands-on, willing, loving, and gentle dad I’ve ever met. I rarely have to ask for help with our son. From playing with, changing, bathing, feeding, doctors appointments, my husband is right there.
    He’s an incredible spiritual leader, guidance counselor, and prayer warrior. We live in a neighborhood where several children don’t have dads, and my husband has become theirs. They refer to him as dad and their faces light up to see him, much like our own son.

    He truly rocks!

  158. Katie T says:

    follow you and U28 on Twitter!
