Father’s Day 2012

I feel like the luckiest guy in the world, just as many father’s do.  Especially since, in my practice, I see so many dads (and moms) who wish they could have more time with their kids.  This year I was honored as “Father of the Year” by the Father’s Day Council and the American Diabetes Association.   I got to tell a few hundred people how proud I am to be a dad and I got to thank those who were and are important to me.  That was the real gift I was given (aside from a trophy that seems to weight 20 lbs.).

And then on Father’s Day itself, I was able to attend local celebrity DJ and Hawks’ announcer Ryan Cameron’s Daddy Daughter dance with my daughter at the Georgia Aquarium.

I am lucky and happy to have enjoyed a full weekend focused on my relationship with my daughter.  I hope every weekend is as joyful and wish much happiness and joy to all the fathers out there.
