Yesterday being Fathers Day we were a very busy household. It all started at 7:45Am when the first of eight daughters called. Then it was on to breakfast with another daughter and her husband and their grandaughter. Then it was on to another daughters home where more of the girls had gathered and had a picnic for Dad and to give him his gift. Five of the children had gone together and bought him a new gas grill that we will be able to use at the new apartment. In between times our cell phone never quit ringing with messages from the other girls. By 8:30pm I was exhausted and ready to head for home and get ready for bed. The ankles are swollen and breathing is at a premium as the humudity was terrible. So glad that my husband had a great day. I also want to say that nothing could take away from the joy of having a father as caring as mine was. He was only with us for a short time as he went to another place higher up and more peaceful at the tender age of 42. Thank you Dad for all the the many things you taught me. I still find myself missing him so very much. Time to go and thank all Fathers in this world for the many things they brought to our families. Lilly
