I heard this on a recent episode of Catholic Vitamins, and it made me think of my dad, my father-in-law, my brothers, and, yes, my husband. They all embrace life with a sense of adventure that inspires me and a practicality that sets me straight.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up,totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming …. WOW what a ride.”

Mark Frost, The Match

Happy Fathers Day to them, and to all of you, whether you have children or play an important fatherly role to others.
