Fathers

I was one of the lucky ones.  I grew up knowing, with 100% certainty, that any time I needed him, anywhere, for any reason at all, my father would show up. If you grow up with a dad like that, you're way ahead of the game from the very beginning.

I am one of the lucky ones.  I married the same type of guy - the one who shows up and puts in the hard work and puts the needs of his family before his own, every single time.

We are celebrating Father's Day by rushing around frantically (or, in my case, limping around at a snail's pace), trying to get everything ready for the movers. We'll plan a real celebration for another day.
