Was it Father's day on Sunday?
Oh nooooo......(rushes to the phone to call his dad)
(in my defense, not one of my kids wished me a happy Father's day
Three of my four kids made long-distance telephone calls from California to wish me a happy Father's Day, to invite me out there without accepting my excuses for not traveling, and to send me gift certificates. The one in Arizona--well, I know he was working on Sunday (St. Mary's Hospital, Tucson) and he's a father himself: his own son probably didn't remember either. At church, in honor of Father's Day, the "church ladies" pinned a white carnation onto each adult male who looked "fatherly," and I really got pinned!
Father made brief mention of Father's Day at the end of the lengthy Pentecost Sunday service, and we all sang "Memory Eternal!" for our departed fathers and "Many Years!" for our living ones (including me).
