The Greatest Gift
“With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, I am pleased to announce that all gifts have been purchased.”
This was my smug thought as I was driving into work this morning. It is a well-known fact that although Frume Sarah LOVES to select gifts for her dear ones, she often lacks the foresight to order them in advance of the occasion.
My mind then wandered, as minds often do, to last month’s maternal celebration. I remembered what we had given to PC’s mother and grandmother, but I had no recollection of wrapping anything for BubbeGiraffe.
“Ah yes,” I thought, “we participated once again in the Mother’s Day Flower Project, sponsored by Jewish Women International. It’s too bad that there isn’t a way to support their Good Guys program in a similar fashion.”
Not more than a few hours passed when I received an email from JWI with an invitation to thank the fathers with a donation that will be used to rear a new generation of Good Guys.
For those of us who are blessed to have wonderful dads in our lives, is there a better way to honour them? After all, how many ties can a Good Guy wear??
