Thinking about Father’s Day and how a little care for Dad goes a long way with this Sponsored post thanks to Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.
A husband. A father. A daddy.
I’ll never forget the moment I knew he would be the most amazing father. We weren’t married or even engaged, but were only dating at the time. I just knew.
He had a different perspective than most 30-something guys I’d met. Truth be told, he had a different perspective than most anyone on this particular topic. We talked about what we were looking for in a spouse. The most important thing – he wanted a spouse who he would be completely comfortable with raising any children if God forbid anything were to happen to him.
I’ve never forgotten those words and how important it was to him. But then again, he’d been through a lot, having lost both his parents in his early adulthood. He’d faced death and the grieving process. He knew how important it was for children once a parent was gone.
I’ll be honest, that was something I’d never thought about, but then again, I had the luxury of having both parents and even 3 grandparents at the time we were dating. That different perspective was one I’d come to understand more the year after we were married, when my mother passed away unexpectedly.
This guy, my husband, he had his priorities straight. He knew what mattered in the end. That has influenced his life and has, in turn, made him an incredible daddy to one lucky little girl.
Even with having priorities straight, life is hard. From big picture things like losing parents to the small things each week that keep one exhausted. Dads need a little care…..
A little care fuels a dad’s heart.
A little care empowers a dad’s strength, aka, superhero capabilities.
A little care goes a long way.
For the dad in our house, that extra care might mean a little time to play a video game or a weekend trip to a golf tournament. No matter what, I know he’ll return to us, better able to care for us.

As I think about Father’s Day, these products would make a great gift basket or “care” basket for those we love. AND….not just for our husbands and dads, but for all the men in our lives who we honor on this great day. I know first hand that it’s not always parents who raise and support us over the years – this is also for the grandfathers, uncles, cousins, friends.
Tell me, how did you know your spouse would make an incredible father? Not married? Tell me how you CARE for the dad or father figure in your life!
