Happy Father's Day!

Father's Day is a bittersweet holiday for me, even more so this year. I lost my own father in 1995 at the age of 43. So, not only is Father's Day just rough, in general, this year, it falls on what would have been my father's 56th birthday. It's going to be a tough day, but I will soldier on, for the sake of my daughter and my husband, who still have the pleasure of celebrating the holiday together. I went shopping for a gift and cards and I'll put a smile on my face and try VERY hard not to let myself get bogged down by the memories of a man who should be celebrating twice as hard tomorrow.
