Any Man Can Be A Father But It Takes Someone Special To Be A Dad

Father, you have taught me everything I know and stand for and have raised me to be strong and independent. I am will be very grateful and thankful for all that you have done. Thank you for everything and I mean everything.  For teaching me to smile in the face of adversity and to believe in myself no matter what anyone says.

The value of fatherhood cannot be overemphasized, fathers are usually our first heroes, our first rides on bikes, significance of money, our first driving lessons. They are our shoulders to cry on so are they the ones we can actually rely on to be there whenever we need them. Fathers all over the world are heroes, not just the notable ones or the famous ones but everyone who has put the smile on our faces, whose look has kept us moving on and everyone who will call DAD with that feeling of fulfillment brewing deep down in our souls #aToastToDad
