Hello again everyone.
All I can say is that it was Fabulous! I spent an entire weekend basking in the glow of the appreciation of my children, grandchild and, of course, the Old Lady. Its good to know that there are people out there that love you. How else would one be able to live a happy life without the love and adoration ( er … I mean admiration) of his (or her) family??
Please allow me to say a heartfelt (tear running down my cheek) “Thank You” to all of you for your thoughtful and generous gifts. I will accept them and use them in the spirit in which they were given. I love each and every one of you (including, of course, my literarily challenged readers). I am so lucky that all of you are a part (no matter how large or small) of my life!!
(The Old Lady would probably have me end my blog here, but I am going to go on a bit longer.)
Father’s Day, like Mother’s Day, is a celebration of the Family. You see, the father (in this case, me) could not possibly have completed his original fatherly duty (otherwise known as the OFD) if it were not for the following people: His mother and father, and of course, his wife (or significant other). All of that leads to children, who in turn, together with their spouses, and/or significant others, produce grandchildren and so forth. The “circle of life” sort of thing.
This creates a family. (sniff – I need a tissue). I love mine, including those who are related to the Old Lady. They may be “across the aisle” so to speak, but they and their spouses and/or significant others are a huge part of my family.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
Here is a short video of some of my family members at a recent family gathering.
