Being a father is much like flying a kite. You have to develop the right hold at all times. If your aim is to make the kite soar as high as it possibly can, you need to master the art of holding firm as well as the art of letting go.
Holding too tightly oftentimes limits flight power and will eventually lead to the kite succumbing to a fall specially when it's subjected to sudden gusts of wind.
Holding too lose will let the kite accelerate too fast and lead to a premature dive.
A practiced kite flyer knows his kite and it's capabilities. Is it strong enough to stand the weather's condition? Is it capable of flying higher? His hand instinctively knows when to hold firm and is sensitive to where the kite wants to go. He loosens his grip when the kite is stable enough.
We each want to see kids become the best people they can be. We want them to grow strong and be able to weather any challenge they come across, virtually being above the clouds that life may bring!
Let's love our friends and family too like a master kite flyer in how we deal with them. As their spirits fly higher and higher, we will find our hearts soar high with them!
Dad, your guiding hand on my shoulder will remain with me forever. ~Author Unknown

Fun Things to Do with Dad
Father's day is just around the corner and what better way to honor your father then to plan out a day in his honor!!! Here are some ways to give him a day to remember!
- Before Dad wakes up, set the breakfast table with greeting cards, gifts, balloons and decor for a big surprise!
- Let him have his favorite breakfast while his favorite music is playing in the background.
- Go play his favorite sport with him. Does he love fishing? kayaking? basketball? golf? If it's not your forte, have him teach you!
- Let him have a rest from household chores like cleaning the car and taking out the trash. Offer to do all these on Father's day!
- Try out a new restaurant which served Dad's favorite food!
- Give a personalized gift like his framed picture on the cover of his favorite magazine! Make your own art with this website! Click over to http://www.magmypic.com/ and print out the image of your own making into the size of a blank frame (8.5" x 11") and buy one of our ready blank frames in Papemelroti shops.
Recycled Crafts for Dad
There are countless ways to make useful items from old throwaways. Here are ways to show your father how much you love him, while saving the earth from trash while you're at it! Try them out and think up your own crafts!!!
1. Use an old tie for dad's sunglass holder. Make sure your dad won't use that tie anymore or you'll get into trouble! Click to Family Fun.com for this novel idea!
2. Cut up an old sweatshirt's sleeves for a No-Sew Winter Hat for Dad. Cut the elastic off the cuff. At the wrist end, cut slits up the sleeve about 6". Randomly tie slits together in double knots. Not all the slits need to be tied, some can just hang down. Roll the other end up twice to make a brim. It's really that easy! Click to Making Friends site for more ideas
3. Spark your creativity! Find more fun ideas on this site!
Today's world is full of stress and discouraging news. It's not easy to find inspiration and strength for daily living. Why not join a family-oriented Christian Community and learn how to strengthen and support each other to be the people God has created us to be?
Whether you are 9 or 90, a Christian community has a place for you to build strong relationships and grow spiritually. With many families breaking up, today's Christian needs a sheltering people, a family of families all together answering the challenging call to discipleship.
Learn traditions that unify and bring about a lifestyle of Christian living whether you're single, a couple, big family or grandparent!
