Just a thought.......

With Father's Day around the corner, the newspaper and TV ads are just crammed full of advertisements of all the things a dad could want. This morning I saw for the 'umpteenth' time a Se@rs Commercial done to the tune of "Silver Bells". In this commercial "Dad" was bumbling all over, cutting power cords and such, and desperately needed more Cr@ftsman tools to rescue himself from doing any further damage with the ones he had. The kids laughed, and I admit that I did at first, before I was convicted by how bad "Dads" (men) were being portrayed.

Where is the commercial where the dad comes home from working all week (or all day), and gets on his Cr@ftsm@n mower and cuts the grass, or gets his tools out to work on the car so his family has something safe and reliable to drive, builds a deck out back and a picnic table for them to enjoy, or builds a laundry room so no one is stuck doing laundry in the hot or cold garage? Just a thought - because that's the kind of dad/husband we have here, that's the kind of dad/husband/man I want my son to be....might make me want to go out and buy more Se@rs tools.

Ok - I know it was a commercial and meant in fun (I guess), and maybe I should lighten up, but it seemed (to me) a rather emasculating commercial and yet another jab at the role GOD has for the men in our lives.

The kids and I said how thankful we were to have the dad/husband we have. We are now making him a special surprise for him to enjoy when he gets home. :)

(This was not meant to pick on Se@rs - I've seen other commercials here lately that don't put dad in a good light, and if you watch TV you'd see a lot of the shows on don't either.)
