Ask Yourself What Does Father’s Day Really Mean to You


As I was sitting here going through facebook and thinking about all the things people have written about fathers and mothers and the one day that is set aside to honor them I thought of my own parents. They have been together for 64 years. My mother fell in love with my Dad when she was 13 years old riding a school bus. They lived a mile and a half from each other. She has loved him all of her life. He has loved her all of his life. Together they have raised five children and buried one. They have lost siblings and parents. They have been through ups and downs and bumps in the road. They both have survived cancer for 13 years. They raised a son who is challenged and he became a productive member of society. They have been blessed with 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Their life has not been perfect but their love has. They taught their children how to love each other and how to make a marriage work. (Though some of ours didn’t) They taught us unconditional love and that people are not perfect. They taught us that even those who are challenged have a place in this world. They believed in us even when we didn’t.

The greatest gift our father gave his children is that he loves our mother- He is only happy when she is happy. He lives to take care of her and enhance her happiness. He has told me time and time again that the best part of his work day was coming home to his family.

No we are not a TV family. No we are not perfect, no my parents are not perfect (even though for years I thought they were) no the world is not perfect- but their love for each other and their children- grandchildren and great grandchildren if perfect. They love unconditionally.

If you would like an insight into just how perfect their love is how they raised us to love in that same vein how they taught that everyone has a place then you want to read Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option.

My mother and Dadn never gives up- She never gave up on my brother who is challenged. He is a success because of that.
