Life is a gift we’re given each and every day.
Dream about tomorrow, but live for today.
To live a little, you’ve got to love a whole lot.
Love turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Life’s a journey always worth taking.
Take time to smell the roses … and tulips …
and daffodils … and lilacs … and sunflowers …
Count blessings like children count stars.
The secret of a happy life isn’t buried in a
treasure chest … it lies within your heart.
It’s the little moments that make life big.
Gut-Wrenching Ad Highlights The Sacrifices Parents Make For Their Kids Every Day
There’s nothing parents wouldn’t do for their kids, even if it means masking their own struggles.
This tear-jerking ad from MetLife Hong Kong is a tribute to the sacrifices parents make for their children on a daily basis.
Titled “‘My dad’s story’: Dream for My Child,” the commercial shows a father reading an essay his young daughter wrote about him.
As the little girl’s voice narrates the essay, she praises her father for being her “Superman,” “the sweetest daddy in the world,” “the smartest,” “the most clever,” and “the kindest.”
But then she reveals she knows more about her father than he lets on — the pain he hides behind his smile. “He lies,” she says. “He lies about having a job. He lies about having money. He lies that he’s not tired. He lies that he’s not hungry. He lies that we have everything.
Our fathers carry half of our genetic makeup. Our relationship with our father plays a huge part of who we will become. In many segments of society, people grow up without ever knowing their fathers. This is unfortunate because fathers should play as important a role in raising their children as mothers.
A father is the model of a man for his daughter and she will choose a man who is like him. A father is the model for his son as well. Fortunately, there is a trend for fathers to be more active in their children’s lives.
