Being a Father: Yankees Giveaway

NOTE: At the end of this post, I'll tell you the rules for my Fathers Day 2022 Contest: The winner will receive either a Game Used Yankee Stadium Base Autographed & Inscribed by Aaron Boone, or a Mariano Rivera Autographed Baseball.

My father died when I was eleven, and was in and out of my life before that, so I don't have too many solid memories of him.

And while I was super close with my mother, I never felt like I knew "the whole story" with her. I think my mom operated under the "I didn’t want to tell you because you weren’t ready" mentality, and we never quite got there.

In anticipation of Father's Day, I've been thinking a lot about what being a father means to me, and a big part of it is sharing as much of my life as possible with my two kids.

This meant bringing them to work as much as was possible (and realistic) while they were growing up, and it also meant letting them have a voice in where we'd go on vacation, or to eat - or any of our family plans, for that matter. And it's meant being open with my children emotionally (within reason of course).

Being a father has also meant passing on "life lessons." I've always emphasized three "golden rules" with my kids:

1. Be a good person to everyone.

2. Be a good brother and son with your family.

3. Do your best in school.

Those were our only "non-negotiable" rules. We drilled them into our kids very early on.

And it's very satisfying to see what generous adults they've become, what good sports they are at all times.

But being a father is not just about how I "parent" my kids; it's also about how they influence me!

My kids, in addition to my wife, serve as my accountability police.

They keep me honest by goofing on me what seems like all of the timeThey help me to not take myself too seriously.

It’s good to have people who know you and are completely open and honest with you. Who can critique you.

My daughter often calls me out when I tell her a story: "I can't believe you said that to that person!" (She also helps me dress sometimes.)

For me, the bottom line is that being a father is about more than the love I have for my kids: It's the teaching that only my my wife and I can provide them - and it's the learning that we can only get from them.

  • I am Genevive Brown, I’m from Houston Texas. A single mother who was abandoned by her husband because of this numerous flings who was taking his attention. Since my husband left me, I have been struggling on how to pay my bills and cater for myself and son, it wasn’t easy for me and my son for a year and six months. I came in contact with Dr Uwaifo page and I saw all the numerous testimonies of people he has helped win Lotto Max with his spiritual spell casting. I decided to contact him and told him all I was going through, he replied “my daughter you are in the right place, I will help you accomplish all that you seek. “ he then told me all I need to do, I actually did them reluctantly because I wasn’t too sure with the whole thing. After the whole process, he gave me the winning number, I followed his instructions and played the Lotto Max game with the winning number he gave me. Few days. I got a text that I won the Lotto Max tag price for the game I played. I can’t believe that I won the sum of $ 850 Million Dollars. All this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Dr Uwaifo the spell caster. Thank you Dr Uwaifo. Please contact Dr Uwaifo for any spiritual spell casting.

  • Now You Can Stop Your Break Up, Divorce or Lovers Rejection… Even If Your Situation Seems Hopeless! (marianspells@gmail.com)

    A big thanks from to DR MARIAN for helping me to restore my broken home. Inconsistency has been the order of the day in my home and marriage. My husband has had a hell of a problem and torn on my flesh ever since we started having too many misunderstandings. Some days, he just left and never returned until its past weeks. I was devastated and tried all I could to fix the problems but didn’t succeed. I had to search out for help and I was directed by a friend to contact DR MARIAN which I did. I never knew it would be possible because the problems had lingered for two whole years. DR MARIAN assured me and only told me to trust HIM and believe in having my desires granted. HE fixed my marriage with HIS powerful love reunion bond and my home is great again and my husband is with me now just 2 days after i encountered DR MARIAN and never to leave anymore. if you are also having relationship issues, Contact HIM and be 100% REST ASSURED HE can help you because he has no bad records. contact HIM via:
