Our fathers are long gone, and our sons are in Florida too, but far away even here.
The most Hubby will get, not unlike me is a phone call, but Geez that's good.
We have no grands to hear from yet.
So we not unlike many people without any children will just have another day added in, checked off for the year...oh well...remember how lucky you are to be able to celebrate and sure I am a bit jealous!
I can think of two people right now whose husbands are no longer here due to them passing away, and for them I am sure their legacy for one being all their children and a bumper crop of grandchildren are thinking of their loss sadly but fondly and their loved ones are deeply missed.
My heartfelt thoughts are with everyone like myself who have lost their pops/dads/grand-dads, you get the idea!
Just like Mother's Day happiness and sadness occurs.
Loss is like that.
But people please do not forget to say that you love these people!
You never know how long you have, seriously.
