Today ...

Today, I miss him ...
I wonder what kind of dad he would have been,
I wonder what kind of grandfather he would have been,
I wonder what he would be like as an old man ...
I wonder what he would have been like as
a young man with two growing sons ...
I wonder a lot about him ... and what he could have been ...
I miss him a lot today ...
I wish he could have been here - even for a little longer ...
Father's Day has never been easy for me ...
Today is not really any different ...
I'm proud to be a father,
But, I wish I had had one to learn from ...

Happy Father's Day, Rev...

I think a certain amount of good "fathering" stems from the instincts we have, the personality that we are born with. I'm sure you've come by a lot of your good parenting skills, because in this way, you "got" them from your dad.
