Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all of you dads out there! I hope you got to spend the day doing whatever you wanted to do and were spoiled by your family.

Father's Day wasn't that big of a deal for my dad. I know he appreciated getting phone calls from my sisters and me on that day. He tended to show his love for my sisters and me through his actions - by doing things for us, helping us, and being there for us in bad times - than telling us that he loved us in words. He also wasn't all that comfortable getting attention from anyone, including me, partly because he was a very private, almost shy person. I still miss him and would have loved to have talked to him today. I'll have to be satisfied with talking to him in dreams.
