Happy Father’s Day

To my Dad…thank you. What should have been said and done in the moment: ‘I Love You’ with hugs.

Father’s Day Celebration

My Father’s Day celebration was perfect this weekend. I heard from my four children early in the morning and considered myself blessed. I thought back to my Dad and did the usual assessment of his personality, strengths and arrived at the eventual conclusion…remarkable man…I was lucky, I was blessed.

I wish I would have told him that beyond when I told him, as I held his hand, as he took his final breathes in the hospital. 

This weekend, I attended my daughter’s graduation at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. It was a very pleasant celebration that segued, in my mind, into the joys of fatherhood, the bittersweet transitions, the sometimes blind luck that results in amazing kids.

Happy Father’s Day

To all the men that provide the guidance, direction, strength, character, probably unstated love, pride and guardrails for your children, or kids you’ve come by,….Happy Father’s Day!!!

 A sincere remembrance of my dear, departed dad and Happy Father’s Day to my father in law too!

Happy Father’s Day

The father who would taste the essence of his fatherhood must turn back from the plane of his experience, take with him the fruits of his journey and begin again beside his child, marching step by step over the same old road.  ~Angelo Patri

Mother’ bundle, suckle,  dominate and peck us toward adulthood. Fathers bully, bluster and tease us. But, also by example, dads provide us a template, especially young men, of how to step into manhood. And, once there, endure the tedium, load and strains. For that frequently unspoken element in the equation…..somehow let your father know you love him. I love you dad. Easier now…mine has passed. If you are a dad….make it easy for them to show you how much they do indeed love you.
