On Father's Day

Mrs. Darling : There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor... nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.
Michael : Where did he put them?
Mrs. Darling : He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... and he does. And that is why he is brave.
James Barrie ~ Peter Pan

That is one of my favorite parts of Peter Pan! It's a beautiful thing . . . being a father. :) Thanks, Dad!
