HAPPY FATHER'S DAY 2013
Our new choir director was baptized today.
After church we had grilled chicken breast for lunch with everyone here. Rebecca and little Evy came up and joined us as Aaron had to work today trying to get all the soy beans he can planted before the rain moves back in tomorrow.
After all the kids left hubbie and I took a long walk around our farm. As we walked past these fruits it looks like we will have bountiful harvest of blackberries, grapes and pears.
As I sat out in the quiet evening I thought of my dad on this Father's Day and felt that familiar empty ache in the pit of my stomach. I miss my dad every day in some way even though he died almost 32 years ago. When I look at the old pictures I have I wonder what he would think of the way I have raised my children and the way I have lived my life.
This is one of the oldest pictures I have and it is a metal photo of my dad, he looks to be in his later teen years.
