    Happy Father’s Day!

    Father’s Day
    I found this Father’s Day poem and it reminded me of the true value of being a parent.
    On the day I was born I met you, Dad.
    Over the first few years, I learned
    you were strong and always there.
    As I grew a few years older,
    I could remember you leaving home.
    I’d say, “Daddy where are you going?
    “I have to go to work.” you used to respond.
    I was very sad. I didn’t understand.
    You would “go to work” almost every day.
    You were almost always gone.
    I didn’t understand.
    I can still hear you saying,
    “I have to go to work – I love you.
    and perhaps silently hoping…
    “maybe one day you’ll understand.”
    You worked hard.
    We always had enough.
    I couldn’t understand.
    As I grew even older,
    you provided experiences and opportunities.
    From being on teams to going to camps,
    I made new friends and learned a lot.
    I repeatedly changed my mind, but I always excelled.
    I’m grown now.
    I work hard – like you did.
    I have children of my own.
    I spend more time with them
    – because of you, I can.
    Thanks Dad, now I understand.
