Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

This week, my inspirational quote is a little different than usual. Father’s Day is Sunday, so that’s where my thoughts are—not on the week behind me, but on a day coming up.

Father's Day

I’ve been blessed with many wonderful examples of fatherhood. My grandfather and my father were everything a girl could have asked for: strong, fun, loving, caring, encouraging. I have uncles and inlaws galore who fit the bill, too. I can’t tell you how full of love my heart is for each and every one of them.

But my blessings, rich though they are, don’t end there. I married a man who is the best father I ever could have wanted for my children. He gave me a son and a daughter who are smart, funny, strong, and beautiful. I love him for many reasons, but maybe for that most of all.

This week, I got to spend time with a family member who I don’t often get to see, and it reminded me how special our time together is and how much it should be treasured. I admit, sometimes I can’t see the obvious forest for my busy schedule of trees. It’s embarrassing, because it shouldn’t take a holiday or a visit to remind me.

I hope to spend every day counting my blessings. As I work on that, I want to wish every father—and every positive male role model—a very happy Father’s Day.

And now, this week’s writing links:

  2. I love the quote you chose today. Wonderful sentiments too. Although my father was only in my life for 13 short years, he definitely contributed to making me the person I am today, and for that I will always be grateful. Have a great weekend, Staci!

    • Oh, Mae. I knew you had lost your dad, but I didn’t realize you were so young when it happened. I’m sorry for your loss, but I know he must have been a wonderful person. I know this because we are products of how our parents raised us, and you’re an amazing woman.

      Wishing you a peaceful weekend. ❤


  3. A wonderful post, Staci! I’m always amazed at how fortunate I was to have a great father, and I’m also blessed with a man who is an incredible father to our kids (even if the ungrateful progeny (read: teenager) can’t see it yet). And thanks for including my post in your links 😀
