Father's Day

On Sunday, dads everywhere were kings of their castles. Breakfast in bed, greeting cards, and surprises of all sorts. Every Father’s Day Peter thanks me for making him a dad. I tell him I enjoyed it.

But it’s really about kids and their fathers. Ours never let their father down. Peter opened his cards at breakfast. Loving messages from Jeremy and his family telling him that he’s an awesome dad/grandad. Seth thanked Peter for forty-seven years of service as an outstanding father. He added, “Thanks for having such a great attitude and (seemingly) enjoying life despite its limitations.” That made me weepy for a moment, but that didn’t last because he added, “Note: This should not be seen to imply that you are everything a husband should be. That’s another story.”

Out of the mouths of babes!


Take a look at some pages from the book 70-Something:  Life, Love and Limits on Amazon
