Although Mother’s Day is typically more celebrated than Father’s Day, we wanted to make sure not to forget about our amazing fathers, dads, daddys, papas, etc. this month!  Our fathers do so much for us our lives, usually the unappreciated things – pay the bills, supply the food, protect, discipline, etc.  Sometimes it is difficult to show appreciation for these things that we just expect our fathers to do anyway.

Father’s Day origin dates back to 1908.  Sonora Smart Dodd was one of six children raised by her father after her mother passed away giving birth.  During a church service to honor mothers, Sonora decided it was high time fathers, like hers who sacrificed for years caring for her and her siblings after her mother’s death, got the appreciation they deserve.  She solicited several churches, storekeepers and her local YMCA for support for two years before finally achieving her goal.  Washington state celebrated the first Father’s Day on July 19, 1910.  Other states adopted similar celebrations, but it wasn’t until 1972 that Richard Nixon declared Father’s Day a national holiday.

Hard as it is to believe, we’ve only been nationally celebrating the efforts of our wonderful fathers for a little over thirty years.  Although most fathers are wonderful providers and protectors, let’s not forget that they also teach us how to play sports, teach us to drive, encourage our accomplishments, give us sound advice, and pick us up when we’re feeling down.
