I am writing this for on of Etsy Blogger's Carnivals. It was this or my fav recipes. Anyone that knows me knows that I don't cook and I barely prepare food. So Father's Day was the choice. But this was a hard choice since my father died when I was 23. That was MANY years ago. Father's Day between me and my father is a blur as our relationship was never very good...in fact it was abusive. The end years were a little less abusive. We just saw the world differently. And let's face it, he was a weird individual.
But my husband has a wonderful daughter and she is my wonderful step-daughter. I have known her since the age of 2 and she is about 33 now. I love her a lot. She gave him a $50 gift card for amazon.com He loves amazon.com so this was a perfect gift. I no longer grieve over the loss of my father or even my mother since it has been a long time since they have passed. But, the relationship between my daughter and her father is what is important now. They have a good relationship and that matters. I am grateful for that and I depend on her remembering her father every Father's Day. And she does. Bless that woman. She holds a special place in my heart. So that is what Father's Day means to me.
