On Effort & Parenting

While perusing some of my “regular” reads earlier today, I came across this story and thought it to be worth sharing.

The name of the blog is Two on a Rant and the title of the post is Father’s Day Thoughts.

The stories on this blog are typically honest, personal and raw, the combination of which makes for good reading . . . which is why I read it daily.


Here is the quote that hooked me:

“Father’s day, and Mother’s day, are not about

the mistakes they made, or the fact that all parents

look at their children as if they’re 14 for

the remainder of their lives,

but about the effort they put into being parents.”


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there, especially mine, who will celebrate his 88th birthday on Tuesday.
