This Father’s Day weekend, I hope you will be able to celebrate the fathers, father figures and male caregivers who have made a difference in your life.
My father adored me as a baby and while we grew apart a bit as I grew older, I always knew he loved me. I only wish I could have returned the favor more at the end of his life, but even through the fog of dementia, we were able to communicate with one another and demonstrate the strong father-daughter bond that had been there all along.
As this past year has taught us so painfully, we can never take moments to express our love for granted. Happy Father’s Day to all who provide care for others.
