Sunday my sons congratulated me for Father’s Day. For me it was a day to remember my own Father, who passed away on Father’s Day, just 3 years ago. In our family we grew up to remember events and nurture memories. As a Father myself, I try to pass some of those family related memories to my children as well. These memories do not need to be those related to extraordinary achievements. They are more those simple memories about who our ancestors were and how they lived life. We remember them and sometimes we understand who we as individuals are and act in our own life. For this I remember my Father ( not only) on Father’s Day and every year I am surprised to discover how much of him is still in me.
