I avoided Facebook yesterday. Father’s Day. Naturally, the news feed was filled with Father’s Day posts …
Happy Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s Day in heaven.
Missing you on Father’s Day, dad.
Of course, I share those sentiments and of course, my dad was heavy on my mind yesterday. I just didn’t feel the need to post the same sentiment but, instead, I chose to keep my thoughts and memories to myself.
My dad was taken from us far too soon. I am now the age he was when I moved out of state. I’ve already had a child move out of state and back again. It’s hard to think that most of my memories of him were before he was in his 50s. There was so much more to ask of him – so much more to learn.
People, listen to me! Do not take for granted that you will have a multitude of years left with your loved ones. No one knows when they will be taken away leaving you with a lot of “if only” thoughts.
