Fatherless Father’s Day

My daughter knows her dad is dead. She is only four-and-a-half but still knows that a body can stop working right and then stop altogether. But I want to preserve Fathers Day for her. Despite not having a living daddy, I want her to know that the day is special and a time to commemorate that unseen force working in her life. So we celebrated all day with memories and stories of her dad. And later we saw my dad who I am thankful for every day! We also sent special vibes to my father-in-law across the miles. So despite the lack of a physical father presence, we knew he was with us in spirit – and probably on the couch watching the US Open most of the day like he would have been if he were here.
