Tomorrow is Father's Day
6/17/2006 3:23:27 AM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

Tomorrow is Father's Day. It is a day set aside to let your father know how much he means to you. It's a day where celebrations occur and family tends to gather. Father's Day is a meaningful day because being a father, a true father, begins with your birth and does not end until your soul travels home.

Father's Day used to be a day I took for granted. I always did the obligatory call telling my father how much I loved him and thanking him for all he did for me, however, all that changed about 6 years ago when my father passed away. At the time I felt the loss of someone who I respected and loved dearly. I knew all the lessons he tried to teach me and I remember how resistant I was to some. I also knew and felt a bond that words cannot express between two souls searching for meaning in their lives.

My father was a simple man. He taught by example and when he fell short of the mark he set for himself you could see in his eyes the anguish he underwent. He was a gentle man. He always put others before himself in a way that made you proud to be his son. He was a kind man. During his last years he became dependant on my care and his gratefulness shined brightly even though inside he was feeling pain for the loss of his independence.

I miss his smile and his gentle touch. I remember his last words, "I love you........ It's beautiful, it's nice". I miss those phone calls that let you know he was there for you. I miss his radiating energy most of all and the spiritual nature of his being. I miss a friendship that cannot be interpreted or explained but could only be felt as a warm glow of love.

Do as I have done. Remember your father this Father's Day. Know he did his best to give you all he could. Know that he carried inside the burdens of yesterday and the hopes of a peaceful tomorrow. Father's Day.........brings to me memories I cherish and the knowledge of knowing a man who loved me for who I am in spite of all my imperfections.

On this Father's Day I wish to share with you a presentation that touched me deeply and gave me many peaceful and joyous moments thinking of a humble man who was and always will be my dad. Please go to: Sit quietly and give your mind the time to remember.
