Amelia's Intern Diary - Congregation

It’s Graduation week!

This gift means that your graduation celebrations can last longer than just 24 hours.

We just go about our lives expecting our parents to be there and help us with our goals.

Father’s day exists so that we can show our appreciation and say thank you for all of the times our Dads have supported us and sacrificed some of their dreams so that we can reach for our own.  It’s also a day that should be all about them.  Do something that they want to do, give gifts or cook their favourite meal.

My Dad would drive me to and from my friends’ houses endlessly in my teenage years, even when it was late.  He would untie ... read more
