(The following is an edit of a post on this occasion in 2009. The sentiments remain as always...)
Father’s Day is upon us for another year. To many, this may be one of those 'artificial' holidays. Maybe, but I have always enjoyed the role of the dad, and see the pleasure in the role throughout the years.
The blessed events in December 1988 (left) and November 1990. We start with the blank canvas as parents, but really have no experience in our roles as parents, but hope to get the child to learn, to listen and to instill values that will allow them to thrive as they grow.
The pleasure today is to see them at as they have grown -parents need to give them the room to experience and grow. So I enjoy today and see this loyal pair as a joy then and now. Happy Father's day to all dads!
