Father’s Day Via Instagram

Instagram is one of those social media platforms that some would say we opened the door too early and allowed our 11-year-old to partake in.  Our concession to this method of communication comes with as many rules and regulations as Obamacare.  One of the caveats would of course be, to monitor her account.  Most of her posts are harmless selfies.

This Sunday when we checked we saw this.

Always be my no 1!

 

An image of her and her dad at a cotillion father – daughter dance earlier in the year.

The picture is precious to me for many reasons

but now, add her comments (minus the spelling errors)

and it is truly priceless!

Libby is at the age when we, as her parents, can be embarrassing for a host of reasons. However, when your dad is not like all the other dads, physically, it seems to stand out.  We are simply, more aware that his Parkinson’s Disease may add to her discomfort or questions from friends.

So, it was refreshing to see her proclaim “no madder” what, he’s her #1 man – for all to know.

 

Until there is a cure we will be the change.

The People You Meet Along The Way

I have been fortunate to meet many new people along our new path and I couldn’t be more thankful.  Same theme exists throughout our conversations; family love, pride and immense respect for their loved ones ability to maintain their dignity.  This picture was sent to me from a families Father’s Day celebration…..He’s 97 and we think he looks GREAT in his MagnaReady blue pinpoint oxford! Thanks for sharing Ann!

Review From Left Hand Style – Style In Its Right Mind – By Stephanie Thomas

Thank you Left Hand Style for the review!

MagnaReady makes a great gift for Fathers Day! If you or someone you love has difficulty fastening buttons, the MagnaReady buttondownshirt will make dressing easier and faster.
It’s a great looking shirt. I appreciate designer, Maura Horton’s attention to fashion as well as function. MagnaReady uses  individual magnets underneath each button for long-lasting dependable closure.

Dear Dad,

Sometimes you read something that makes you pause.  I often wonder where our 10-year-old gets her wisdom.  I believe she may just have an old soul.

Libby’s Fathers Day letter closed with……I couldn’t wish for a better one.  I love you with or without Parkinson’s.  You’re the same in my heart.
