Have You Thanked Your Father Today

By Jennifer Elizabeth Masters

Each of us has one thing in common, well maybe two, or three... we all have fathers to thank for being here today.

Whether your father was present, or not, the 50% of the blood that runs through your veins is from our fathers. Our genetic traits, part of our personality and the beliefs we hold have a significant impact on our daily life because of our fathers. 

Resolving conflict with our parents is paramount to happiness. Forgiving our fathers for anything we perceive was done or not given to us is the foundation for healing. 

Our fathers imprint their beliefs, traits, and qualities upon us. If our father was skeptical, maybe you are too. If our father was a gardener, perhaps you learned at his knee. If you father was a hard worker you may have followed in his footsteps. 

Women often attract men who in some way resemble their fathers. Men may unconsciously emulate their fathers with their work ethic, parenting skills or beliefs.
