You will agree with me that fathers don’t get enough accolades and recognition as they should. We all know moms are very sweet people and deserve to be celebrated, but the same should also go for dads.
Some homes will not be in the good shape it is now without dads. A lot of families depend on dads because they are the heads of every family. While moms take care of the home, care for the children, and put things in place, dad is out working so the family can be fine.
So, this makes both our parents deserve the same level of love; one should not be greater than the other. I suppose you forgot your dad’s birthday, that’s why you are here. Anyways that’s not a problem, as I have a collection of happy belated birthday dad wishes for you to make up with your dad, after missing his birthday.
Please read through and select the best for your dad, because he deserves the best. He will be so happy to read from you.
