For Father's Day, we asked you to share what your father taught you by finishing the sentence “Dad taught me. ...”
We received some great responses demonstrating how your fathers have impacted your lives, whether it was advice, a loving saying or a life lesson.
One of my first memories of my dad was his teaching me how to dance by standing on top of his feet. We twirled, jumped and burst into fits of laughter as we glided across the room. At my wedding many years later, the father-daughter dance brought back these great childhood memories.
Fathers are monumental figures in our lives and are known for giving great advice. The 17th-century poet George Herbert said that “one father is more than 100 schoolmasters.”
Father’s Day is a celebration honoring dads, granddads and paternal bonds, and in honor of the day we want to know how your dad made an impact on your life by participating in our competition (see details below.)
The day has American roots and was founded in Spokane, Washington by Sonora Smart Dodd.
