Make a Difference Mondays - Fathers Making a Difference

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had an awesome weekend!  Since it was Father's Day, I'd love to talk about how I've seen fathers serving their family today. 

Fathers protect.
Fathers provide.
Fathers love unconditionally.
Fathers give sometimes every ounce of energy they have towards their family.

I'm so grateful to the many fathers in my life.  I have been blessed with lots of them, and they all continue to impress me every single day.  I continually see them being so giving of their time, energy, patience and love.  They often have a long day at work to provide for their families, and then they come home and continue to give to their families by helping with the kids, helping around the house and yard. 

I don't know if I could pick just one favorite thing about my own dad, but one thing that stands out to me is his quiet example.  He's constantly doing the right thing, but never tooting his own horn.  He's always behind the scenes helping someone.  Just because it's "behind the scenes" it doesn't mean it's not important, though.  The work he does for others is more important than anyone could ever really know. 

I'd love to hear...
What is one of your favorite things about your dad (or a father in your life)?

Now, onto the link up!

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose—making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. There will be five women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all five of our blogs and we also have three wonderful co-hosts who will fill in as guest hosts on the occasional day that a regular co-host is not able to post. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!

Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.

Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link-up any blog posts that encourage women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!

Also, just a heads-up: the Make A Difference Mondays team has created two fun new ways to keep us all connected! Now we have our own facebook community group to stay in touch beyond the blog posts AND we also have a new #MADMlinkup group Pinterest board and we will be pinning our favorite posts from the linkup that inspire and encourage us to make a difference. We are so grateful for you and would love for all of you to join us for fellowship in the above linked community group and you can follow the Pinterest board right here to watch for your posts.

Be sure to grab the sparkly image above for your posts and/or include a link back here within your posts. Any on-topic posts are welcomed, no matter how old and no matter how many! And before you leave, you'll want to subscribe by email if you'd like to keep up with this weekly Make A Difference Mondays project and much more!
