Last Saturday I posted several pics of Father’s Days past, starting with my dad and I and then a through the years collection featuring Johannah and I. I did not say anything about our travel plans (because one should not post online that you are going out of town for several days, advertising publicly that your house will be empty). My wife got to visit family and see her dad on Father’s Day this year. She spent a full week with him and also her brother and his family that came down from Pennsylvania. I arrived on Father’s day and we made it a whole Father’s Day family thing.
Sometimes I do this thing where I get a few hours sleep, get up at midnight then drive 10 hours to surprise Teresa by arriving early. This is the sun rising over Pulaski, VA. There are a few raindrops on the windshield but you should be able to see fog wrapped around the mountain tops.
My dad passed in 2010. This is my father-in-law, Roger Goad, and his two kids of whom he is very proud. He spent the day with them and his two granddaughters. Grandchildren are God’s rewards for not killing your children. So that’s something to look forward to.
We will have church service at church on Sunday morning. That will be exciting. Next Saturday is the 4th of July so we’ll plan for something special on that day. Be safe out there, peace and God bless.
