Dove Men+Care | “There to Care”

Family’s a funny thing. We don’t choose the families we’re born into, yet in many cases, we learn to love them for the people they are and forge our bonds over time. And then you have the families we createΒ ourselves, learning to love them in an entirelyΒ new way as we grow old with significant others and raise children to become the adults we dream they can become.

But what about everyone else? What about the people who enter our lives, making us better than we were before we met them, regardless of how closely blood relates us? It could be anyoneβ€”grandfathers, uncles, teachers or coachesβ€”this Father’s Day, Dove Men+Care want to celebrate theΒ other men who play pivotal roles in our lives, their deeds too often unsung. And with that in mind, let me introduce you to a man named Paul.

Paul’s my boss. My boss for the third time now. He stepped into my life back in 2009, doing me a solid when things could’ve gone aΒ very different way.
