Thought for Today: Tomorrow is Father's Day. Often we neglect the step-dads who filled in for their step-children day in, day out as the dad they didn't have to be. They are like the beautiful shining light in the above photo. Many children of divorce or who's fathers have passed away are afraid that it is disloyal to their "biological" fathers to give them any love, respect or gratitude. Often they don't seem to notice or appreciate that constant light they have received from their step-fathers until they are grown & have children of their own. I decided to make this e-card & play a song for them.
"He Didn't Have To Be" is a tribute to all the men who step up without expecting gratitude. Here's a song for all those dads. It was co-written by Brad Paisley & Kelley Lovelace about Lovelace's relationship with his step-son. Happy Un-Father's Day!
