To all the Dads

Take a moment to inhale the smell of your child's hair, snuggle that space on their necks that makes them giggle. Even if you have to make them bend down to do it.

Embrace what you have.

Hug your child longer than usual.
Hug your child tightly.
Because Art can't.

Happy Father's Day To You

  1. I remember how overwhelmed I was that first Father's Day. I had purchased an Elmo Father's Day card for our 2-year-old to give him, but he died the week before. I hadn't the heart to throw it out until a few weeks ago -- nearly three years!

    I'm sorry you have to be both parents this holiday. Your love for your kids is evident in your writing.

    Hugs to you all. So sorry for your loss.
