Happy Day After Father's Day ! Hope all of the father's in your lives were well celebrated! My job was to make a big deal out of the guy in this picture, a step-father extraordinaire! Saturday and Sunday was all about him. (we don't do Father's -or mother's- Day. Nope we do the entire weekend!)
We had a great time doing whatever he wanted to do! Which meant that we relaxed, watched some old movies, took a long drive, saw some model homes (just something we enjoy doing) and we had a lovely walk! We took turns taking pictures on the walk.
We stopped by the National Cemetery to wish my dad a Happy Father's Day in heaven. A lot of other people had the same idea. I think we saw more visitors and more flowers there than any other time we've visited.
Tim got cards and books and a balloon. There were some of his favourite candies and a plant for his office. There were meals out and special meals in. I did some baking too, both pie crust cookies and brownies. The brownies were by special request, which is as it should be.
Tim was very pleased with his Father's Day weekend and I am so glad to know that. Because quite honestly, it never feels enough. How do you properly express the appreciation and gratitude and love that you feel for the person who has prioritized not just you but your kids for the past...however many years? Everything he has done was always for us. He placed all of us #1 on his list from the very beginning and there we still are. His first and last thought every day is his family. That's pretty darned special.
And so is he.
Yup, this is me. Some people said, "Sam, you should write a Blog". "Well, there's a thought", I thought to myself. And so here it is.
