A salute to all our fathers
Dad is daughters first love and sons first hero. As kids, we want to do everything to make Fathers day special for our dads. Snuggling with your dad no matter what your age is the best thing to ever do. Sleeping with our head on his lap while he caresses our head is the best feeling in the world. Just giving him a head massage/ oil massage while making funny hairstyles are the best moments I remember as a child. Dads play different roles in different phases of our lives. friend, guardian, financial provider, listener, life mentor, but a guiding light always. He is the only person who wants to see their kids grow and succeed more than he ever did. He teaches us to face our fears and believe in us. He teaches us to value and stand for ourselves. We know that he will always protect us and has our back . He is a strong pillar of strength and we can count on him always.
In today’s busy world we don’t take the time to sit and talk to our families. But the Pandemic has brought us closer and taught us to cherish every moment and make it beautiful and memorable. Just a hug to our dads and (Chai pe charcha) long conversation will make Fathers day special. Whether in person or on a video call , dads just want to see their kids happy faces.
Other then that we could also do some fun, cool things with them like watch a movie. We have listed some beautiful movies for all ages that you could watch sitting on a couch with gobbling an ice cream maybe!!!
