On yesterday's post, I shared my personal testimony of how I went from the turmoil of my divorce in Thanksgiving 2001 to the bliss of Thanksgiving 2010 with my new family. When I looked at the statistics this morning, I see that it's the 3rd most read post in our brief history. Many of you shared with me how encouraged you were by it. And that's gratifying to know.
A significant reason that I made it through that rough patch was the love shown to me by both of my parents - love, not only in words but also in deed! And that got me thinking - even though we have readers all over the world, since we're based in the United States and this coming Thursday is Thanksgiving Day, I'd like to make this week a week of thanksgiving for the dads in our lives. So each post will be about different aspects of thanksgiving for our dads.
And I'd like to culminate this special week by having you give thanks in your own words to your dad or father figure, while the world is listening! In less than 2 months since we launched The Upbeat Dad, we literally have readers on every continent - except for maybe Antarctica! So your "voice" would be "heard" all over the world as you say thanks to your dad.

Do encourage others to join you in sharing their stories. Let's make this Friday a day that all our dads feel good about the roles they play in our lives. They're deserving in so many ways.
