In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since:
"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."

June is the FLX/WordCount Blogathon! Join us for 30 Days of blogging madness!
omorrow is Father’s Day and a Sunday.
Stop reading this and go sit with your father for a little while.
You don’t know how much longer you’ll have him.
It’s also okay if you’d rather have a steak and a beer by yourself because your father was rotten to you.
Come by tomorrow ~ we’ll talk.
Oremus pro invicem,
Father’s Day has become so complicated for many of my generation. I think I’ll just go back to sleep.
