Father’s Day: My Thoughts

“What we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they are not trying to teach us.”— Umberto Eco.

Happy Father’s Day!

The love of a father is often unexpressed.

Fathers usually don’t show their tears or their fears.

But, the invisible protection, which his presence provides us, remains the pillar of strength throughout our lives.

Remembering my father not only on this Father’s Day, but everyday.

Yes, I miss him every moment, and feel his presence and blessings always upon me.
