Today, I spent most of the morning making my Dad his favorite meal: lasagna + cheesecake. I took the liberty of adding in a salad, just to even out the cheese to vegetable ratio. It was simple but it was what he wanted. I took the meal over to my parents house and spent a few hours hanging out with my mom and dad, talking, keeping my little sister company and wishing my older sister was home to share the day with us.
We always try to get our parents something for their respective days and take it as an opportunity to make them feel appreciated. I take great pleasure in watching my dad open gifts, no matter how big or small they are he always sings a song as he opens them. It’s really fun.
I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating the father figure in your life.
