Father's Day

As everyone knows, Father's Day is Sunday. This will be a very different Father's Day for me. It's the first one without my dad. I'm not even sure how I will feel on Sunday. Right now I'm just remembering last Father's Day. You see, my dad was already in a nursing home and not doing very well. My mom had brought him home for a few hours so he could spend the day with family celebrating him. Only, I didn't know that and no one called me. When I called my mom that night and found out that he had been home, but no one let me know, I was heartbroken. I didn't get to tell him Happy Father's Day. Not that he would have understood what I was saying, but I still wanted to say it.

I know my dad is in a better place now, but I'm still dreading Sunday. I will try to make it all about my husband, who is a terrific dad and deserves a day all about him. But my heart will be heavy. My sister is coming to visit tomorrow...I suppose we can remember Dad together.

Just wanted to post a tribute to my dad...a layout I did last year, right after Father's Day...my favorite photo of the 2 of us, when I was about 3 or 4. Fathersday_3
