Happy Father's Day, Mr. Fancy Pants
By HomeIsWhereYourMomIs on July 12, 2012
Father’s Day was just here, and this year it was more special to me than ever. Six months ago we were not sure my Dad would even be around for Father’s Day. He was diagnosed with a blood cancer and started chemo treatments immediately. (He recently underwent a stem cell transplant, and I am blessed to say that it was successful!)
This year for Father’s Day I planned on doing something different for him. I started going back through my old photos and finding the ones that made me laugh, the ones that made me remember and the ones that made me happy. I wanted him to know how much those memories mean to me and how lucky I am to have the best dad in the world.
I wanted him to know that I remember seeing the thousands of jellyfish in the water on our beach trip to Panama City. I remember camping in our 1970’s VolksWagon van and catching my first trout in the river up in the north Georgia mountains. I remember going to the pool and being mesmerized by the tsunami that he created by doing a cannonball off the diving board. I want him to know that I cherish every one of those memories!
And I planned on giving those memories back to him through StoryMark.
And as much as I love my dad, I will have to make fun of his short sleeved turtleneck shirt and plaid pants combo from 1974. It’s classic.
