Happy Belated Father's Day to all those fathers reading my blog, to all the sons and daughters who are blessed to have a relationship with their fathers who are alive, and to all the fathers that are passed on who are missed during this special day. My father passed away from Alzheimer's disease when he was 67. He was diagnosed at 59, shortly after I moved to California, and I miss him daily. It was very sad for my family to lose such a physically strong man to such a deteriorating non curable disease.
My father was an amazing man who taught me everything I know about owning a business, patience, compassion, love and he taught us to stand up for ourselves when we needed to. He owned a large construction company in the suburbs of Chicago and showed me the pros and cons of being an "employer" and an "employee." Ironically, out of his five children, four of us own our own business -- so it proves to us the powerful influence he had with all of us. I miss my father's hugs, his wisdom and his strength. NO doubt it's been a rough few years for me, but as seasons change, so does ones problems. I know I'm in just a "season" right now, and I look forward to when that new season will come.
Now onto some happy things. I think most of you know that Tamra and Eddie got married this past weekend. She made a beautiful bride and the wedding was nothing short of spectacular. I don't think there was a dry eye during the ceremony, as it truly was an emotional day for everyone to be involved and be able to witness their love for on another. I'm so happy for then and I pray that they live a life full of happiness, commitment, and love.
