Father’s Day

What’s in a name?
What’s in an action?
What’s in a thought?
What’s in a word?
There is meaning
There is effort
There is reflection
There is life or death
Dad
Present or absent
Significance
Honor
My dad was not and still is not a major part of my life. However, I appreciate him for the small things. A kind word, “I’m proud of you.” A phone call to say “hey I was thinking about you.” We don’t have many memories shared together but we have a few that are special. When we are together he looks at me and smiles. He hugs me and offers a forehead kiss. He walks with me and talks to me. I don’t ever remember hearing a negative word or criticism. There just were many of those special moments.
To him I say Happy Father’s Day.
To you, if you are a dad whether you are active in your children’s lives or not Happy Father’s Day
