Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

Happy Father’s Day


1999As a child, Father’s Day was another day to thank my mother for the dual roles she filled in my life. But for the last sixteen, my husband has restored my faith in the Y chromosome by being the wonderful father he is to our son. He’s making waffles for us this morning, which we excitedly await.

He’s got a theory. On Mother’s Day, the dads take their kids for the day so the moms can have a break. And those same families send the kids with their dads on Father’s Day so they can spend time with their kids. We think it’s a plot from the Mommy’s Morning Out Union.

We’ll likely go for a hike or a bike ride later in the day, then enjoy a delicious meal on the back deck … together, because that’s what the Three Adventurers do. Together.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Father’s Day with whomever fills that role for you.

  1. My heart swells with love as I read this newest post. Happiness for the loving child who turned into such a wonderful woman. Happiness that the wonderful woman found such a perfect man to “Adventure” with and who were both fortunate enough to have the privilege of loving and raising such a fantastic son. I am eternally grateful to be part of such a family.
