Happy Fathers Day to all the dads

Let's hear it for the dads in the world. Fathers Day is June 16, always the third Sunday of June.

Our fathers are special and don't get nearly enough credit for the contributions they make to children.

They teach us how to "man" up and be tough when the going gets rough. They also often show us how to be gentle and appreciate the finer things in life, particularly in the great outdoors.

Appreciate all the fathers and father figures in your life. Let them know how much they've impacted you over the years. Even if your own dad is no longer with us, make a list of the ways he made a difference for you.

You may pleasantly surprise yourself.
