Do you love your parents as much as they love you? I never thought about this before I had my own kids. Amazed by each step. Excited by their discoveries. Sharing their triumphs. Frustrated by their struggles. Saddened by their disappointment. Feeling their pain. Worried when they are late, or sick, or hurt, or sad. Fearful for their future. Hoping they’ll make the right choices. Praying they’ll be happy. When I was the kid, I didn’t understand. Now that I’m a parent, I do. I love you Mom and Dad. Happy Father’s Day (and early for next year, Mother’s Day).
Note: Today I’m going to the Mets game with my daughter. Its something that I used to do with my Dad when I was the kid.
