When talking with another Expat mom about what we wanted to do to make Father's Day special, we decided that our kids really don't understand all that their father does for them. What his role is and how he fulfills it with such deep conviction. They don't really understand what it means to have "spiritual leader" as your title and how much he might struggle to live up to that. We asked all the families that might be joining us to bring a small tub, towel and a few words of encouragement to our time together.
As for me, as well as the other wives/moms...well, the best gift I can think of to give my husband isn't tangible. He doesn't need things. My husband's heart is to serve. What better way to honor, respect and show love to my husband than to teach his children who he really is and how to show respect to him?
We really had a very special evening, one I know the Father in this house will not soon forget. One I know the Heavenly Father was blessed by.
