Father’s Day Feed
As the years go by, the character of Father’s Day has constantly changed for me. It used to be fun to see what sort of gifts my children thought I would like. Paintings, handmade gifts, socks and ties.
Nowadays, my grandkids are giving me similar gifts and, if anything, I enjoy them even more as “Papa Rob” becomes my new moniker. And I have to say that I am blessed to have three healthy children, their spouses and those grandkids in my life — that is a gift I am so grateful for.
So this year, as my children take me out to a local deli for a feast of fattening food, I will do my best to remember that we are not promised another day and to be thankful.
Here is wishing the dads in this audience a happy and healthy Father’s Day; take the time to cherish it.
