Happy Father's Day
Sunday, June 21, 2020
good morning - my dad was a very hard working guy. 1 full-time job and 2 part-time jobs.
I would barely see him. But I had a favorite place to talk with him every morning. I would get out of bed still in my nightgown and sit on a heating unit on the floor in the bathroom and watch him shave. I would have a good 30 minutes with him talking about all sorts of stuff. I loved that time with my dad. He was a man with few words. He loved his family although he rarely got along with my mom. He was a good man who married my mom on the rebound when her fiancé' died in WWII. Found out just recently when my sister died she gave me some personal paper of my Dad's. He was paying for his two sisters' house mortgage. I know now why we were so poor. We never had new clothes and many times not enough for the heating bill. There were many secrets that I did not find out about their relationship for years. i chose not to live in the past. Good Day to all the fathers of the world who love their families.
