It’s Father’s Day.
Many people are scrabbling around to buy cards and novelty gifts to say thank you to their amazing dads thier, number one fans thier Heros.
This year I’m not even sending a card to my dad. I’ve had lots of flashbacks to my childhood recently and most of it was scared, sad and lonely. My dad does not know how to show emotion or connect emotionally connect with people. Apart from angry. He does angry really well, terrified me most of the time.
Watching my own husband with our kids, treating them, paying them attention making time with them actually makes me jealous. I’m ashamed to admit it. So this year I’m ignoring my own dad this year, but celebrating my husband, who is an awesome dad.
