Father's Day Memory

Missing My Dads this Father's Day by Barbara L. Steinberg

I know I am not the only daughter or child missing a Dad today. While I appreciate whoever (Hallmark) invented these holidays -- Mothers. Fathers, Grandparents -- those of us without are reminded of just that. And while I am glad to be reminded, I do miss my parents especially on these occasions.

So I was very glad to have stumbled upon the photo yesterday...the day before Father's Day 2010. I remember this day so father-in-law (l) and my Dad (r) enjoying a reflective moment at Lotus Valley Nursery near Coloma, California. This was many years ago. And my Dads (sadly) are no longer with me. But their memories live on...through this photo...and this post.
