Fathers Day....

As we all are busy making plans for a picnic, family gathering, just good food, drinks and laughter, I want to take a minute to think about all the father's that are sitting in the hospital maybe with a PA line in or LVAD.  Or the dads that is spending time in the hospital being with a loved one.  I can relate.  When my daughter was living in the hospital just waiting for her heart, we spent Father's Day in the hospital.  I remember there was this one gentleman waiting for his heart sitting there alone.  He was a father, but was not able to see his family, they lived quite a distance away.  We walked by his room and wish him a Happy Father's Day then invited him to our room to spend some time together.   He was so happy someone recognized that this was his holiday. He declined and said" I am fine, just miss my family".  So if anyone is going to the hospital today take a moment to wish a stranger Happy Father's Day.  Trust me they will appreciate the gesture.
