Father’s Day, a day like no other. Last night I dropped off cards to my dad since I would be celebrating with my husband and our kids. My dad planned to work through Father’s Day as that is what makes him the happiest. I invited him to stop by for a barbecue lunch, he assured me that he would most likely be too busy because he had much work to do. I left the offer open.
Father’s Day morning, I went to Dunkin Donuts to pick up the breakfast requested by my husband as well as breakfast for everyone else. Today, there would be no chores for my husband outside of cleaning off the grill, and starting it up.
With 7 Children home to honor a dad the day was amazing. Our 29 year old cooked the burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob and the Spanish rice. Everyone else supplied the laughter and smiles. The day included beautiful heart warming cards filled with love. Chewie the adorable little chitzu and the three Jealous family cats brought some amusement to the occasion. Everyone chipped in to clean up when all the fun was over. Many hugs and kisses were shared as the three oldest went on their way.
I hope that no matter what you were doing or where you were doing it, you found time to honor the father that helped you throughout the best and the worst days of your life. The father that loves you without condition. Even just a little thanks goes a long way.
Happy Father’s Day Father!
