Father’s Day Over Generations

In pre-school:

  • Someone delighted by my arts & crafts.

In high school:

  • Someone mom reminds me to thank. Afterward, his smile makes me feel glad that I did.

In 20s:

  • Someone you can’t wait to call. Both of you share ups, downs, moments, ideas, dreams. We are now friends, too.

In 30s:

  • Someone who can’t wait to hear about your life as a father: “How is MY grandson.” (Can still feel the smile in his voice!) You put grandson on the phone. The circle of life so clear and joyful.

In 40s:

  • Someone you can’t call anymore. Every photo you see, holiday prayer you say and memory you enjoy reminds you of his love. You talk about him. A lot. You miss him more than words.

Later:

  • You spend the entire day waiting for your phone to ring.

So:

  • You can tell his grandson … how blessed you are to be his dad.
