How to Feel on Father’s Day

Today is my second Father’s Day without my dad. Please don’t feel sorry about it, though. It’s already a hundred thousand times better than my first Father’s Day without him.

It wasn’t my father’s lack of physical presence that made my first Father’s Day without him so painful, it was the expectation from others that celebrating the day in his absence should be painful.

Hadn’t I endured enough pain watching cancer eat him alive?

Hadn’t I endured enough pain having him pass away the day before my birthday?

Hadn’t I endured enough pain knowing he was taken at an age where he had so many more dreams and goals and shenanigans yet to be accomplished?

Today I will listen to classic rock and dance badly around the house.

I will look at my favorite photos and delight in my favorite memories.

And I will be happy.

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy.
