I wanted to take a minute to share the link to a beautiful and inspiring reflection on fatherhood. This article was written by my brother-in-law, Tom Steenson, who is married to my husband’s sister and teaches 5th Grade at The Heights School in Maryland.
Here is a short excerpt that I found particularly inspiring:
“We may fool ourselves into thinking there is nothing heroic in our daily lives. After all, our day-to-day is hardly newsworthy, nor does it approach the level of notice reserved for medals and public honor. But just as there is a white martyrdom, the silent and bloodless giving of one’s life for Christ, so also there is an everyday heroic, which often finds itself played out in the silent offering of one’s daily life and work to God.”
