Although I have been hearing this same phrase over and over again, I can’t help thinking much about how I can make my father’s day gift any more special. So I spent the whole afternoon in the mall, scouting a legit gift I can give my dad at a great discount. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything that I want that would fit my budget, so I ended up buying a simple black eyewear. Along with the gift, I also handed a greeting card, with a note that says, “I’m sorry dad, this is only what my budget can fit as of now, but I hope you like it.” When he said that it doesn’t matter because he loved the thought and it made him really smile, that’s when I was truly assured that the saying, “it’s the thought that counts” is true.
