On this Father's Day I sit alone. Emptiness has filled the house and all I can hear is the quiet. Mom and kids are all in MA with the Virta clan at the Beach House that we have for two weeks. Even though I am alone, I am truly enjoying this Father's Day. Not because I am by myself (that novelty wore off by the first day), but rather because my wife and kids are totally happy right now and having the time of their lives. And that is really all that matters to me. My focus in life has become not so much what I am doing or feeling or what is happening with me....but rather how are my kids and wife feeling and what are they doing and are they happy right now. I was just thinking today that that is what being a Father is all about.
