---- And a HAPPY FATHER`S DAY to you guys as well !

This is the one day each year that I have flip-flop emotions. The happy emotions are because I am a father of one -- a 15 year old boy. He is very much like me at that age (long hair, loves rock music, spends way too much time chasing girls :) ). He is a good kid and I am proud to call him my son.
The sad emotions are because I lost my own father suddenly 15 years ago. He was only 52. I constantly think about the "what ifs" and think about things I should have done more or things that I should have said or shouldn`t have said. I just didn`t get enough time with him and I regret it every day. I didn`t tell him "I love you" very often and that is dumb on my part.
If you are fortunate enough to still have your dad, give him a call or a hug if he`s near. Tell him that you love him today.

I can relate. I just got off the phone with my dad, telling him I wouldn't be able to make it this year. I didn't tell him it was because I can't afford the trip (he lives in St Pete), but I'm sure he knows why. He's 81, and I don't know how many Father's Days I have left with him. At least I know all my brothers and sisters will be there today, and all my nieces and nephew, with their children. There isn't a man that walks this planet that I respect more.

I choked up on the phone, which I have never done talking to my dad before. :( I just thank the Lord everyday, that I have him in my life.
