Father's Day is here! By now, you've found a Father's Day gift he'll love (even if he swears he doesn't want anything), and you've picked out the perfect card. But after you've wrapped the gift and sit down to write in the card, you come up empty. How do you sum up how grateful you are for everything he is? Whether you're writing a message for the father of your children or your own dad, it's not easy to say how much he means to you.
Before you crack under the pressure and resort to writing your name, check out these lovely Father's Day messages. Start by thinking of his personality: Is he the type of guy who would appreciate a hilarious dad joke? If he's more sentimental, pick something that tugs at the heartstrings. Or go with a meaningful quote about fatherhood from his favorite athlete or celebrity. Just remember: You can never go wrong with a message that comes from the heart.
Thank you for being the glue that holds our family together.

Now that I'm an adult, I can say that you were right about everything.

Dad, you’re one in a million, which are roughly the odds of everybody being ready and in the car when you want to leave.

I love how we don't have to say out loud that I'm your favorite child!
I hope this Father's Day is as fun as your life was before kids.
I may not be perfect, but at least I'm not mailing this from prison. Nice job, Dad!
Sorry for all the gray hairs!
