Swinging into Sunday

I can’t say enough have how wonderful my children made me feel today. Not that I don’t feel their love all the time throughout the year. But for some reason today felt special. I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe it was just the hugs and hand squeezes. Maybe it was the smiles and laughter I heard. Maybe it was everyone being together. Maybe the appreciation that I’m still here to enjoy their love. Whatever it is I’m a very blessed father indeed.

I hope my children know in their hearts how wonderful it is to be their father. How happy they have made me. How I’m so proud of who and what they have become and all they do. I hope all fathers have this feeling, because it’s about as good as it gets when you add up all the thing you can feel good about.

I set my hammock up last night to see if I could spend a few minutes in it today soaking up some sun and breeze. I figured it was Fathers Day and I could be a little slack and take advantage of the celebration to be lazy for a few minutes. Of course that was planned after the morning chores. The weekends being so wet over the last month or two have really put mother nature ahead by a wide margin. But hammock time is something I didn’t get to today so its on the agenda for tomorrow.

Looks like a few generations fishing together.

Random Thoughts of the Day

You ever think, how you’re going to make it through the work week in the first few hours of it?

I’m into warm weather but Monday is looking a bit extreme.

I think my future with work is telecommuting if possible.

I wish I learned to appreciate and love my wife much more along the way than I have.

It’s always a funny feeling when a neighbor’s house is for sale.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
