Just like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day can be a bittersweet time of memories and reflection. It is a time of appreciation as we acknowledge the one who worked hard and sacrificed to provide for us. This can be a father, or a father-figure. A father’s role represents strength, safety, and love. If you are a father, we at Edgar’s Bath Goods wish you a wonderful and peaceful Father’s Day.
The holiday began with a woman named Sonora Smart-Dodd, someone who simply wanted to celebrate her father, William Smart, a widowed Civil War veteran who raised six children on his own. President Richard Nixon made the holiday official in 1972 and sanctioned the third Sunday in June to honor our fathers.
As we pay tribute to fathers, we turn to the words of poets and other famous people for expressions.
“[My father] has always provided me a safe place to land and a hard place from which to launch.”
“My father didn’t do anything unusual. He only did what dads are supposed to do: be there.”
“My father used to say that it’s never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, ‘You never know what you can accomplish until you try.’”
“The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature.”
Antoine François Prévost
