Fathers here in the USA like to act like they don’t care or think about this day, June 21st, officially named Fathers Day. Most of us were raised to act like we’re tough, and don’t dwell on such, acknowledgment that we are fathers and did a bit to assure that their children and family are fed, housed, school and loved.
The truth is, we all do care, and love when those magic words are said to us, hopefully face to face from our kids and grandkids. “Happy Fathers Day!” What a sweet moment that is.
For those of us waiting, waiting to hear it, after years of being there and doing that, we share an appropriate USA butterfly, the Question Mark butterfly, this one taking a very early morning sun bath, after spending the night before in cool trees at the edge of the Butterflies & Blooms Briar Patch Habitat in Eatonton, Georgia. They fly in the eastern 60% of the United States as well as in Canada.
Happy Fathers Day, y’all.
