I should have written Happy Father's Day in arrears. Lol! I didn't even know it was Father's Day yesterday till I saw people wishing their fathers so and memes about it. That's when I got the scope. And I wished my dad a Happy Father's Day late in the evening and he replied,


                     'It's when the day has almost gone that you're now wishing me abi'

Lol. The koko is that I sha remembered. Some other people would have forgotten!

Anyway, Father's Day is worth remembering because it's a day when we sit down to reflect on the achievements of our fathers. Being a father is not in any way easy. It's apparent that we praise our mothers more thereby neglecting the efforts of our fathers which shouldn't be so. When I think about all the sacrifices my father has made for me, it's enough to make me overlove him. Paale don try! And I'm sure if you think about it to, you'll have more than one positive things to say about your father.

Talking about Fathers, if yours has gone to rest in the bosom of the Almighty, you don't need to feel bad. One way or the other, you have a father figure in your life. Either a spiritual father in the like of a Pastor or your uncle, your teacher, a mentor, a neighbor, a friend or even your mother! We have people saying that they didn't even feel the absence of their father because their mother filled in that space with so much energy and vigor like that of a man! In any way, appreciate all the father figures in your life. It could also be your husband. To commemorate the day, we'll be enjoying some countdown of 10 men that would inspire us to do greater things and 10 other men we are crushing on. Enjoy!
