Happy Father’s Day!

My dad is in a nursing home (and will likely never live at home again). He’s a good 4 1/2 hours away, so we just couldn’t get there today. We were there two weeks ago, though. And we’ll go again in a couple more weeks. Every Father’s Day that I’m not there I think “this was probably his last one…and I wasn’t there.” He had a debilitating stroke almost 7 years ago now (hard to believe it’s been that long!)…I know one of these Father’s Days WILL be his last…and I probably won’t be there for it. I did talk to him on the phone, though. It’s hard to have ailing parents so far away…but at least it IS a driveable distance…

We had a pretty low key Father’s Day here…just spent some quiet time at home as a family.

  1. I’m glad you had a nice, quiet Father’s Day.

    Try not to feel guilty about not seeing your dad yesterday. You called and were thinking about him. I’m sure he’ll appreciate a visit when you can spend quality time together – that’s what counts the most.
