Father's day may be past...

however I used the day to celebrate my time with my mother. Since my father's death, it's challenge to get too excited about Father's day. There also was not a great deal of enthusiasm from the fathers I know. The best part of my day was the homily at church. Deacon Ernie Garcia hit the nail on the head. It was his best talk ever.

I did celebrate the day continuing the conversations with Mother using the book I recently purchased. I discovered a number of items of which I was unaware. Did you know there were over 5 theaters in Sheboygan, Wisconsin at one time? Or, that my grandfather walked my mother to school every day during the winter months? My mother reminded me of things I used to know, but have forgotten over the years.

If you have not taken the time to formally document your conversations, start now. Time is short, life and memories are too easily forgotten. There's no time like the present.
