Tomorrow is Father’s Day. My dad is 90 yrs old. This month, within one week, he was the victim of not one, but two armed robberies. It’s only been a little over a year since he lost his wife of 40 years. That’s a tremendous ordeal for one person to handle in a lifetime, much less that short span of time. So I’m feeling extremely blessed to be able to spend Father’s Day tomorrow with my dad … a man who’s as tough as nails, but would go out of his way to help you whether you wanted it or not. A man who is solid in his opinion and stands firmly behind it. A man who, still at the age of 90, does not know the meaning of the word “rest” and is one of the hardest working men I know. (My husband is the other one.) A man who spent most of his life as a business owner and leader in the community. A man who helped to raise five successful, productive children. A man whom I will always love simply because he is my dad. A man that I’ve always known is there should I need him. And to me, that means a lot. A whole lot.
Tomorrow we go to celebrate with my Dad.
It will be more than just another day.
It will truly be a blessing and a celebration of life.
