One way to honor your father with Father’s Day quotes is to tell him what you learned from him. Tell him some of his best father quotes. Let him know that you noticed the things that he did for you and that it meant something to you. Tell him what his best dad advice was.
I asked some of the Farm Brand team about their fathers and I hope that you share some of your best moments and tips from dad with your father this Father’s Day.
“My father didn’t do anything unusual. He did what he was supposed to do - be there.” - Max Lucado
This is how I feel about my dad. When I was a kid at Disney World I was too scared to ride the Tower of Terror. My older siblings made fun of me. My dad stayed back with me and bought us french fries. He didn’t make me feel bad for not going on the ride, and he was just there. It meant a lot to me and it’s the only part of that Disney World trip I remember. - Nicole
One of the biggest lessons my father taught me is the value of going outside and the importance of a work/life balance. No matter what, he always makes sure to disconnect and to enjoy mother nature to its fullest, and that has always been my inspiration for pursuing the outdoors - whether it be a big hike or simply hanging out on the porch, fresh air and sunshine are some of the keys to happiness. - Dakota
My father-in-law doesn’t talk much. We know he loves us when he asks how our car is running. It’s just his way of checking that we’re safe. - Ashley
