Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the Dads in the world. My Dad, Mom and I had planned to go back to Tinker Falls this year on Father’s Day, harumph. This is really hard.

This is one of the photos I took of my parents on Mother’s Day 2006 wherein I had climbed to the place where we used to walk behind the falls:

I truly hope everyone that is a father enjoys the day. And if you have a father, enjoy everyone moment you have with him, because life is too freakin’ short on this earth for all of us.

    Lynne – I had a really tough time last night bawling my eyes out, and as I was doing it I received an email from a friend showing me something really cool, so it helped me get over it. Today was tough for all of us (Mom and brothers and me), but it’s almost over with.

    Mary – Thanks, I’m trying really hard to be okay. I can imagine you miss your Dad quite a lot.

    I thought of you today, knowing that this is one of many “firsts” for you.

    Susan – thanks, and I thought of you, too! Not an easy day for anyone without a Dad. It’s a “so in your face” day it isn’t funny. Hugs to you, too!

    Jayne – thanks – I know he was as my Mom and I were walking through Watkins Glen. Love and hugs to you, too.

    I’ve never been to Watkins Glen. Your photos make me want to go.

    On Saturday, my friend and I floated candles on the lake in memory and in honor of our dads. My friends candle continued to float for quite some time. My candle was immediately attacked by a school of fish, capsized and sank. It made me giggle. My dad was a fisherman. I think the fish were trying to get even. I miss him.

    Jen – Watkins Glen is a really fun place to go with kids, too. There were several groups there on Sunday.
    Sounds like the fish were getting even! That’s a cool idea to float a candle for your respective Dads.

    Awwww. I missed this post. Just today, my hubby and I were talking about my dad and how much we miss him. Yes, Pam -the death of a parent reveals as nothing else – the brevity of life. You’re right cherish each moment with those you love.

    Cathy – my Dad is sorely missed by all of us, it’s not easy, this whole life-death thing.
