The love of my life. Share the JOY

As we near Father's Day 2014, I am reminded of my own father who was absent from my life starting at age 8.
He was ill from alcoholism.
Something I did not understand as a child.
I promised myself I would never marry an alcoholic.
This is that man.
Loyal, faithful, dependable, humorous.
I was attempting to take a photo of him and our son talking at the graduation party for our grandson.
Just as I focused, he turned and started to walk towards me. 

The JOY I felt as he turned my way reminded me how much we still love each other after 54 years.

Love causes JOY in one's heart.
Love washes away all the struggles and bumps along the way.
JOY is in my heart as I think of all the fathers in my life.
My father,
our sons and
their father.

 Go here to share the JOY
