Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads and father figures out there. Here’s hoping that your day was fun, or at least interesting.
This is one of those bittersweet days. Some of us can no longer celebrate it. Some of us haven’t for a very long time. There are invariably at least a few moments of grief on days like this without our fathers.
My own father lost his father when he was eleven. His near fixation with enjoying each moment of life was likely influenced by that loss. It was a good lesson.
Just because some of us don’t consider this a particularly happy day, I hope that everyone else can make a few good memories with their fathers and with their children.
