It's Father's Day here in Canada and USA. I awoke very early and started thinking of my father, who passed away 15 years ago. I pulled out my parents' worn old family album that they carried with them as we emigrated to Canada. This photo of my courageous and handsome father was possibly taken just before that life-changing event (or was it on his wedding day?). We miss you, Isä and Ukki. We also miss Papa and Opa, who emigrated to Canada around the same time, with his family (including the little boy who was to become my husband) following a year later.
A newer tradition for us is to revisit a wonderful poem card written and designed by two of our daughters to their Dad three years ago. Long-time readers may remember it.
Time to make some coffee for the father of our children. Happy Father's Day to all Dads everywhere!
