Message To My Dad:

At a period when I need you most, you aren’t there. In the stands cheering, not anywhere. I often thought it wasn’t fair. But lately, I’ve noticed, I just don’t care.
You’re phone lines are disconnected. I tried to call. You’re nowhere to be found at all. Four real lucky stiffs get to have you be the Dad you never were for me. But that’s ok. I’ve changed my mind. I need a Dad who’s present, loving, kind… Along life’s path, I picked up snapshots of better Dads that I could find and built one even if only in my head.
To you it’s done, a “job” to you. On this Father’s Day, that statement’s true.

About Mema

I've been at this blogging thing since 2005, but I don't consider myself a veteran AT ALL. My posts are mostly well-meaning, fun anecdotes with the occasional random thought and a dash of humor for good measure. So sit back, relax, and stay awhile. And if you decide to browse elsewhere, just remember...you're missing out on an opportunity to meet (arguably) THE GREATEST PERSON THAT EVER LIVED. Overstated? Well, why not stick around to find out? Your call, tough guy. Or, gal. Or, martian.
