Happy Father’s day

June 20, 2010

Father’s day brings with it a mixture of joy and pain. Joy in the memories — pain in the lose. My dad passed away about ten years ago.

On this day, thoughts of my relationship with my dad overwhelmed me. How I think about him changed a lot over the years.

When I was a child my dad was a superhero.

When I was a teen my dad was a tyrant.

Now, the older I grow the more saintly my dad becomes.

Mostly, I think how fortunate I was to be his daughter.
