There are certain things that Father does best. And then there are certain things that Father just tries hard at. But either way he gives his all, and it's in those attempts where the lessons shine.

Daddies are a versatile bunch, yet fatherhood does something similar to each man.

He settles down, yet loosens up. He works for his kids' future, yet sometimes likes to live in the past. He's the attention-grabber without trying to be, and he's the show-off when you don't want him to be.

We rolled our eyes at him then, but are grateful for him today. He's our father, and here's five lessons that Daddies the world over have taught us. Perhaps they ring a bell for you and can give extra special reason to be grateful this Father's Day.
