My father is very special to me. (Obviously, otherwise I would not have written a book about him!) What I wouldn’t give to celebrate this day with him. I would take him by his hand, and we would take an early morning walk up in the mountains, just him and I. We would talk about life, we would cry- tears from the laughter of course! I would take the time to listen to his wisdom, his stories, and his take on life because those things are what shaped me as an adult. Even though I am grown, I know my dad would still be teaching me a thing or two if he were still here. It’s important not to take for granted the time we have with our children and parents while we have them, they can be taken from us in an instant and we can’t get time back. If you have a daughter or a father, I encourage you to take the time to just go on a walk today. It doesn’t need to be anything spectacular, just be together in the beauty of what surrounds you.
Happy Father/Daughter take a walk day!
