A double whammy on Father’s Day

Not only is today Father’s Day, but it is also the one-month anniversary of my mother’s death. So both of my parents are weighing on my mind heavily today.

I can’t believe it has already been a month since Mom passed. Of course I think of her every day, but I especially thought of her when the tragedy in Charleston occurred. Mom was always so heartbroken to hear news like that. She truly could not understand why some people choose hate over love.

So just like with any death, life goes on, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

To honor my mom today, I’m getting my hair done, which was one of her favorite activities. She loved going to the salon, and sadly, she had to cancel her last appointment because she wasn’t feeling well.

To honor Dad on Father’s Day, I’m going to take a long walk in the park, one of his favorite activities.

How are you spending your Father’s Day?

  1. As usual, I’m late with reading. This time I wasn’t getting my notifications and had to get it straightened out with WordPress. I just received this notification today, and I wish I could’ve been here to give you some supportive words on Father’s Day. My heart is with you in missing both of your parents. I wish I lived nearby to give you a hug, but I’m sending one into cyberspace in your direction.
