Today , on Father's Day, my mind wanders back a ways.
To my ancestors who arrived on the Mayflower.
They were the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of their time.
Click above to read their story...and the Mayflower love triangle.
Tonight, as every day...I also think of my Dad.
20+ years ago, in his prime, he left this earth with me by his side... in the same way he lived his life.
With grace and dignity, fighting a losing 2-month battle with brain cancer.
My summer days of youth were spent on this very Bay, Little Traverse Bay,
fishing and communing with my father, who was my best friend.
The pain of loss lingers on, taking my breath away at times. But I know we will be together again...
my earthly father, Chuck, and my Heavenly father, who will never leave me or never forsake me.
Until tomorrow ~ God willing,
