Whether you're a father yourself or you're getting in touch with your father today–or, if you're like me, both–I'm sure you are struggling to find the words to express the deep meaning of the relationship being honored. There is so much to be grateful for, on both sides. My son pisses me off on almost a daily basis, but he has also enriched my life more than any other person I can think of. He always surprises me, and fills my heart with joy. My father has been so generous, supportive, kind and loving, especially through my most recent ordeal, and I admire how hard he worked to sustain the magnificent family I'm a part of. At the same time, he drives me crazy.
So you struggle to find the words to say on this day. Sometimes the words don't come because you're trying too hard. So, just to give you a little break, I invite you to view this ridiculous video. If you've already seen it — millions have — then watch it again. It might be good therapy. If you've never seen it, well…click here. (Hint: "Mentos.")
