13 Inspirational Dad Quotes That Will Make Your Father’s Day Card Really Special

It’s that time of the year again — Father's Day.

The day that you stress about because... how can you really thank your dad for everything he’s done for you? 

On that day in June, you’ll do anything your dad wants. Maybe that means spending the day outdoors, swimming in the pool, or barbecuing. Or maybe you’ll go away for the weekend to somewhere your dad loves. Maybe you’ll even just stay home, and spend the day as a family. Whatever you do, you know the day is about HIM.

When you were younger, you would come home from school with a handmade craft that you would wrap in tissue paper and proudly present to him. Of course, he loved it. 


As you became older, you began searching in stores for the perfect gift. Something he wanted or something he needed. Maybe a new baseball cap or the latest grilling invention. It was always so hard to decide what the best gift was. 

Your dad has played a huge part in your life. Maybe he introduced you to the sport you ended up playing throughout middle school and high school. Maybe he went as far as coaching that team and taking time out to practice with you in the backyard. 

He worked hard and long hours to inspire you and make sure he could give you the world. You really don't think you’ll ever be able to repay him for that. He just wants the best for you and to see you succeed in everything you do. What more could you ask for?

So, like most of us, you're probably going to get your dad a Father's Day card... but what will you write in that card? You want it to be good. You want it to say exactly how you feel.
