Father's Day is a funny thing...my hubs is not the spoiling type, he is a giver and a spoiler of others. We tried. Instead, he wanted to try his hand at making a breaky he has never made before. So I did the bacon, and he did the rest. Little man helped with assembly. It was a delicious 1st try! 👨👦
Dad's are a funny thing. They certainly aren't one size fits all. My father and I, for example, hardly speak ☹ it's a complicated thing. My father in law and I are closer then my dad and I. So fathers day leaves me with a wrestling. Our son is 10, so I've handed over the reins to him to spoil his dad how he sees fit, but I'm left with no-one to celebrate. Instead, I play third wheel to the Blessing of my hubby and son, figuring each other out. It's a beautiful thing.
When in doubt, golf. My hubs is easy to please...he just loves to golf. He's even easier with his grace towards us, when his card is handmade and empty of gifts or gift cards. We're a good match in that he values time over 💲, and spontaneity is his best friend. .
The takeaway is this...I'm proud of my family. The last few years have been some of the toughest. We have been more isolated and alone than ever, but that has bonded us stronger together. We have learned more about each other, grown together and reached a new level of love and maturity together. I'm grateful for days like today that continue to test our resolve to do things that matter and to be a family that matters to each other. To put time over dollars, memories over materials and one another over ourselves.
