Friday Freebies: Treat dad to free food Father's Day weekend

As the nation pauses Sunday to recognize and pay tribute to fathers, one local pastor hopes he can share his experience as a father, a son, a divorcee with children and the shepherd of a flock of sons through his church in East St. Louis.

The contribution of parents in an individual's life can not be fathomed. They have to show honesty through each day and show that life is worth living. But have we ever thought that why this day is celebrated and how it all started?

When mom got her first iPad years ago, Dad was a cautious observer. Whether it is the pictures and recordings of senseless arguments that you have had with your dad or the secret talks about personal issues that your miss dearly, Father's Day is the flawless occasion to remember these cherished moments in life.

Here are some messages and greetings you can use to wish your father.

America celebrates Father's Day today, with countless ties, cards and cookouts honoring dads of all shapes, sizes and colors. The longer I teach school the more I realize how lucky I am to have my father in my life. Binge-watch some of the most hilarious dad-friendly shows on television, and spend the kind of time he probably always wanted to spend with you! But, you don't have to get me anything. He won't hurt you or leave you an orphan.

I could not get a better friend than you are to me.

Why do we celebrate Father's Day?

My dad was an involved father.

Therefore, all children should thank their fathers for all the unconditional love and support they have given you throughout their lives.

Father's Day is different than Mother's Day because everyone is always showing love towards their mothers, and it can be more hard to openly show love for fathers, according to Thomas.

On Father's Day, I was wishing I could come up with just the right things to tell you how much I appreciate you for all you've meant in my life. "I love my children, and whatever it takes to make them wholesome human beings, I am going to do". Every breath that your dad takes is a gift to you.

To the world, you are a dad. You're honest, caring, strong, compassionate and wise.

Small steps can help dad begin implementing healthy activities into his life - even if just for 30 minutes each day. He worries about being the best father he possibly can be. Fathers bring the finality. In my own case, I saw my father's health suddenly change, seemingly overnight, as he went from being very active and independent all his life to almost bedridden and highly dependent on caregivers. Equally, a daughter's relationship with her dad can shape and impact her future relationships, her sense of self, and how she expects to be treated.
