Happy Father's Day?

As we approach Father's Day this Sunday, I'm filled with more questions than ever this year.

Many of us struggle with Mother's Day. Likely you've seen the various Facebook posts from friends who've lost their beloved mum and urge you to take pleasure in the time you have with your mum. Or even those who are estranged from their mum. 

Yet generally it can seem a more straightforward day for many compared to Father's Day. It might be the child or indeed the dad who finds Father's Day tricky. 

Many dads don't get to see their children as much as they would like. 

Some don't seem bothered to even send their children a text message, then there are those dads who would climb over hot coals but are being prevented from spending that time. 

For me, this Father's Day will be a sad time. 
My first one without my dad. Taken too soon 4 months ago. 
This week all of his songs have played on the radio; there have been tears. 
Early Sunday morning I will visit the cemetery with mum and take white roses. 

After that, I will pop back to my room and sort out my eyes and add lots of make up.  Then we will celebrate the twins father.  He's just awesome.  Always there for them, whatever the request.

We shall all enjoy a nice lunch and do our best not to focus on the empty chair.

I miss you Dad.  But  I know you are just fine where you are.
