It’s Easy to Be a Father–Hard to Be a Dad!

By Doug Armey

Becoming a father takes a moment.  Being a dad takes a life time.

Yet, the greatest pleasure in my life is the time I spend with my kids and their mom.  It’s not a sacrifice.  There’s nothing I would rather do.

For all I have taught my children they have taught me a hundred fold more.  I would not be the person I am today if I had not been blessed with them.

So to all you fathers who are trying to be dads.  To all who are feeling swamped with diapers or car insurance or college expenses hang in there.  We only go through this life once.  And this is the best.

There is no greater calling and no greater joy than to have your kids call you “Dad.”  Enjoy it!

Happy Father’s Day!

    You are right, being a “dad” is the best part of life. I hope you enjoy today, too!

    To my beautiful and blessed father Simon Mayer Levi … Happy Father’s Day … your love was Godlike … your heart as vast as the Universe, missing you more with each passing moment … My father was a very wise man & taught me from an early age, that life is short, to always remember to be “good” to one another! That we were all created beautiful in God’s own image, that life is worth living & we must appreciate it & our true-selves for our real value & important & meaningful purpose. That there is no room for hate in ourselves, in others & the world that surrounds us. I pray in his memory, I can be half the man he was & hope for a brighter, more fruitful, healthier & self-satisfying way of life for all my friends. I love you! David Harrison Levi —
