Chalk up another rousing success for the Towne Meadow Elementary School’s Donuts With Dads initiative!
On Friday, April 12, 2019, kids and their dads spent an hour of donut-powered fun during the latest replay of the school’s annual breakfast event for increasing awareness with students’ fathers.
My children go to Towne Meadow, so I was also there, having a fun-filled breakfast with friends and family.
Aside from that, the school had also invited me to share some of the hard-earned lessons I’ve learned with the dads in the audience.
I talked about my continuing journey as a father and what I truly believe is a father’s greatest ability: his availability.
Because think about it: at the end of the day, what’s most important is a father being there—to teach, to make sacrifices, to get involved, and sometimes even to just listen and learn.
It’s a powerful message that can sometimes be drowned out and forgotten in our rush to build a comfortable life for our children, but it’s a lesson that all of us—dads, moms, parents, grandparents—should all take to heart.
