Happy Father's Day
« on: June 15, 2003, 03:08:14 PM »
Since it is nearly 3pm EST, and noone has made ANY mention of Father's Day, let me be the first to wish....

All fathers, soon-to-be fathers, priests, deacons, bishops, a wonderful and happy father's day. Our prayers that you continue in your endeavors to be the head of the family, leading your wife, children, or church on the road to salvation, all the while enjoying the memories and happiness along the way. But also more importantly, to help your family carry the cross, through all the sickness, despair, or trouble that you will encounter along the way.

So ad multos anos to our fathers!

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!   8)  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).  ;D

Well... in my defense, I TRIED to call, all day Sunday.  But as it was Troitsa on Sunday, my dad was out with all his buddies who came to Jordanville for the weekend, and I couldn't reach him.  Muy inconsiderate of him, I think, all those weekend-minutes I wasted!

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Ania, don't give up!  You can still call him and wish him a Father's Day belatedly.  I'm sure your dad will appreciate your remembering.  I know I would!   ;)
