Happy Father's Day!

In honor of Father's day I'm posting this picture of me and my dad.

I haven't shared this but my dad passed away on February 6th of this year. I haven't been able to bring myself to talk about it much. It still feels a little surreal. He was only 57. It was a very sudden thing. Although, he had been suffering with liver disease for several years. He was a happy person. He was a pastor for as long as I remember. I grew up watching him at the pulpit. He was Santa to my children. We never told our kids about Santa but he insisted on dressing up for them. So everytime they saw a Santa at the mall, they'd say "Look there's Papa!"

I'm sure at some point I'll be able to sit down and write about his passing and how it's affected me. But this is not that day. Today, I'm just gonna wish you a happy Father's day. Remember to call your dad, if you've forgotten. Give the man in your life a big hug and kiss and be grateful for the time we get with them.
