Father's day

I was able to call my dad today and catch up on things, as well as wish him a happy Father's day and say I love him. One thing that surprised me some years ago is that he was doing most of his bill payment online. I know he has a rather ancient computer and dial up internet connection and yet he was ahead of me on that count.

For getting up in years he has quite a good memory. Last  year he was online when I called so I had to leave a message and send him an email. This year he intentionally stayed offline in case I called and of course I did. I made his day again and though we've had our difficulties when I was much younger, I enjoyed talking to him and look forward to seeing him at some family picnics this year.

I know some day people will ask if he was a good father. My answer, to paraphrase a scene from a favorite movie:

I don't think any man is as good a father as he intends to be. But this man tried hard, very hard.

Many families today have fathers that don't even try. I was blessed with one who did and despite the flaws, which we all have, I was instilled with values that make me a better person. However, I still don't care for baseball so much, or the Chicago cubs. Sorry dad, you can't win them all, just like the cubbies ;-)
