Happy Father’s Day!

Take a moment to let the Dads in your life know they are truly cherished…

A Father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.

What a wonderful way to celebrate – let’s give all the men in our lives a big high five and some special attention today! This is their day to be recognized, to be acknowledged and to well, maybe get a free pass and kick back and lie down in the backyard all day doing just nothing. And, maybe, just maybe, someone will make them some delicious Father’s Day brownies, and let them eat ‘em all. Tomorrow will be tomorrow, and you don’t have to worry, because there won’t be any left (brownies, that is!).

“Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.” ~Naveen Jain

“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”~ Umberto Eco

Did you know that behavioral scientists and researchers have long held the belief that the role of a mother was the most influential in a child’s life?  However, current scientific research shows that a dad’s parenting is equally influential, possibly even exceeding the influence of a mother. According to an article in Psychology Today entitled: “The Importance of Fathers,”, it is believed that “children who have an involved father are more likely to be emotionally secure, be more confident to explore their surroundings…and have better social connections.”

Unfortunately, not all-children in the US have dads who are actively involved in their lives. The National Center for Fathering speculates that over 20 million children are raised in homes without an actively engaged father. Hopefully, for generations to come, we will see a marked change in our familial environments.

“Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.” ~Wade Boggs

Embrace all that love you can muster up and give that Dad, or Grandpa, or son, or son-in-law, or Grandfriend, a big hug and kiss – today is their day to celebrate.

Putting Perspective on What Really Matters Most!

a special feature from Kay Ziplow & Leslie Zinberg, founders

We don’t have to wait for a tragedy or sickness or something that rocks the boat of life to really know to appreciate our being. Often the punches we receive in life can cloud our ability to see the bigger picture, and what is relevant and important. As a result, life can sometimes seem very overwhelming. While this feeling is normal, it may be debilitating to routines and lifestyles.
