I almost thought about saving this for Father’s Day but, naw.
The above comic strip (created by CutnEdge Cartoons) is impressive in the forms of the art itself but more importantly, what it represents.
The circle of life continuing again and again and again with love.
I am very sure everyone, anyone who read the strip, reading what I am typing lost a loved one this year, or maybe this month.
Beyond a year or maybe a few days ago?
Our children, offspring must be taught the very lessons that guided us through childhood and mostly as adults. I believe the good and the bad needs to be explain along with open ended questions hopefully coming forth from the child. Even through faults of our own, if we are coming with love we will receive it back.
If we are coming with honestly our words will cling with them to the very end. I am never surprise to the grief one carries from losing a person who they loved greatly to the point that breathing would become a chore. The crazy thing though, they will never leave you if you still remember them.
They will never forsake you if you cherish those moments that you remember of them that made you feel so good.
They will always cling to that wisdom because it came from a loving place, and guided to you by honesty.
So in this reference fathers; all fathers love you children. Love your sons and pass it down for other generations to share in such commitment and reliance.
So, lets start with this day…
