June is a month of mixed emotions for me. It’s my birth month, but at the same time, it’s also the month when my father passed away. Every year, as Father’s day nears, the memory of his passing is kept fresh in my mind.
He passed a couple of days before Father’s Day but for some reason, we celebrated it a week early. I remember us children thinking of buying a present for him such as one of those leather wallets for men that we saw in a store because the one he was using was literally dilapidated. We didn’t get to buy him a present but we had one of the best Sundays ever, I recall.
I miss him terribly but I know he’s in a happy place now. I just hope he knows that we always remember him, that we always think of him ever since that day.
To the fathers out there, Happy Advanced Father’s Day to you. May you live longer and stay happy and blessed in life.
