Favorite holiday


One of the proudest moments of my life was watching my son being raised over my wife (caesarian delivery) and hearing him cry.
Another was when my daughter was born, and then my grandson and granddaughter.


My favorite holiday is Father's Day. It aside from my birthday is the only day where in the family it's my day, now shared with son. It's also a day for me to remember that no matter what I accomplished as a teacher or any other profession I've worked in, that all turns to dust. My posterity is not my bank account or my possessions. It resides in my children and grandchildren and then with theirs.

Beautiful sentiment. My late father used to say that the only immortality anyone can hope for, is to be remembered with love. Kind of like the message of Coco, the movie.

Husband and I consider our 4 adult kids to be our best friends. They return the sentiment...or at least that's what they tell us to our faces! LOL.

You're right, Fiona.
