It All Started 39 Years Ago Today

Real Estate Agent with Classic Realty Realtor

I'll never forget when the doctor looked up at me at the birth of our daughter, on June 16th and said, "Happy Father's Day" and then continued on to say, "It's a Girl". It took just a moment for what he said to register because no one had ever wished me a Happy Father's Day before.

Early today, 39 years later our daughter phoned to wish me Happy Father's Day and of course I wished her Happy Birthday. There have been 5 Father's Days on June 16th since her birth and today is one of them. So this occasion rolls around only every few years, that is her birthday actually being celebrated on Father's Day, June 16th. How sweet it is!

By the way, for my readers, we also have two sons - both married and although they were not born on Father's Day, I should note both of them were born very close to Christmas.

The picture is Tricia and "Yours truly" when she was slightly under a year old. I'm sure all of my readers will be most impressed with the fact I've obviously not aged one bit since this picture was taken nearly 39 years ago.

Tricia and Me

So you see, Father's Day for me, well It All Started 39 Years Ago Today
