Today is a special day for some men out there in the world and to a lot of those single mom’s out there too, such as myself. Father’s Day is one of those holidays rarely celebrated in my house.
I’ve been a single mom since the day I found out I was pregnant with my daughter…that was 4 years ago. Her father hasn’t been in her life at all, so it makes it one of those holidays that we don’t pay much attention to. Though I do send out the typical hallmark card or phone call to both of my dad’s, wishing them all the best on this holiday.
The real person I really wish to spend it with just doesn’t happen to be here anymore, my grandpa. He was the greatest father a child and grandchild could ever wish for. He was a great mentor and teacher. He also had a lot of love to give and a lot of patience, even after I licked his stamp collection to the floor. Hey, I was two and it was my primary job, to lick stamps each time he took me to the post office. So, I thought I was helping out.
Happy Father’s Day to all of you Daddy’s and single Mommy’s out there!
