Like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day is an important day on the US calendar for celebrating the man in your life who has hopefully been of great influence. Maybe you haven’t realized the influence your father has in your life, or you are one of the people who is acutely aware of the influence your father has had in your life. I can honestly say that my father is largely responsible for many of my life decisions. He has influenced me both in choosing to do something based on the wisdom he has passed down, and he has influenced me to make different decisions based on some of the mistakes of his life. I am the man I am today, in large part, because of my father.
