Your career status isn't important to a 5 year old. Your investments are not the reason your small daughter adores you. When you become unemployed...your young twins still look to you to fix their matching bicycles they crashed into each other.
Being hip isn't a prerequisite for your 40 year old son's respect. Workplace colleagues for the most part fade after you have left the company. What seemed so important years ago fades with advancing age and priorities change...not for better or worse...just different.
You are respected and loved as a father just because you are you. That is pretty neat. No experience necessary...being there year in and year out gives you the experience you need. This day I take unabashed pride in being a father...I guess one day a year we dads can bathe in the limelight!
Hope you have a great Father's Day today. By the way...if fatherhood has not come into your life...that is ok too. I went for 14 years of marriage without being a father so we adopted. Believe me...that works just fine!
