Father's Day celebrations will take place all over the USA today, including our house.
My husband has been a stellar father, strong and persevering in the hard times, gentle, loving, generous, and self-sacrificing. It's safe to say he's very, very loved by both of our adult children. Our daughter and her husband will be here to celebrate by joining us for a Father's Day breakfast.
Our son and his fiance are too far away to join us but will be here with us in spirit.
I've already set the table with my very best china, Old Country Roses and a light pink tablecloth.
Throughout my childhood, I was lucky to know both of my grandfathers, too. One immigrated from Lithuania and the other from Poland. Memories of both are mostly sweet and gentle.
I loved all my uncles and miss many of them who have gone to the other side.
This Father's Day, as always, will be bittersweet. It's wonderful to have my husband, my "forever love," still with me. I am immensely grateful for that. However, my heart still misses my own Daddy, grandpas, and uncles.
Of course, there will also be church today and honor given to the Heavenly Father, who made me and blessed my life with so much love.
