The kid inside you never dies, never completely grows up. And if you are a parent, you have a chance to touch that spot every time you hug or kiss, or discipline, or care for that kid. And if you don’t have kids, you have a parent who protected you enough for you to survive…or someone else stepped in and pulled that plow.
We have many chances to reconnect with the flow of our lives honoring our parents, honoring our children. taking joy in knowing that we have done all we can to be good, strong, loving human beings to the little ones who look up at us with such wonder and appreciation.
If you are a father…or if you had a father who loved you…or if you have ever been a nurturer…or have ever been nurtured….
This day is for you. Happy Father’s Day, my friends.
