Another call for recommendations

Hey again. Well, I get to give a talk for fathers day! That is fine, I don't mind speaking, but that was all they told me. Talk on the topic of "fathers day." My problem is that is an awfully BROAD topic. So, what do you all think an interesting uplifting talk could be on, under that topic? I am getting nowhere fast, and my week is dwindling away.

every quote ever about fathers from the ensign since 1940?

anazyle the other characteristics of the 2000 stripling warriors and deduce how their fathers were and do a talk on that?

Things your father taught you that you are now teaching your children. His contributions to your success in life.

I think I would pick some of the fathers in the scriptures that have always inspired me the most - probably Noah, Alma, Helaman(he was like a father to those boys) and Mormon, tell what about their fathering has always impressed me, then bring it to life with stories of my own father and husband and what they have done that brings gospel principles to life as well.
OOH, can I just come and speak? This is such a fun one!!!
