A couple of years ago a fellow blogger and friend James Zahn (The Rock Father) invited me to join a Dad Blogger group on Facebook. A man by the name of Oren Miller (A Blogger and a Father) welcomed me to the group he had started as a way for dads who blog to talk about their families, exchange ideas, argue a bit, offer support to fellow fathers and bloggers and most of all recognize the positive force dads are in society. The only rule in the group is “Don’t be a Dick.” Well this past week the man who had the brilliant idea to gather dad bloggers of all types died of stage four lung cancer. He leaves behind a wife and two children . I can only offer this. Thank you Oren. You inspired and touched the lives of so many people and so many that never even had the chance to meet you, myself included. You challenged people to be better by your words and actions. I leave you all with an Old Irish Blessing.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
