Father's Day

"There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams."

"Where did he put them?"

"He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer. ...He does. And that is why he is brave."

-- Conversation between Mrs. Darling and Michael, from Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Happy Father's Day to my dad, the bravest, smartest, kindest man I know.  xo
