When I reflect on my childhood I cannot help but think of the day my Daddy sat aside my sister and I teaching us how to fly a kite. It is not only a memory I cherish but one I will forever hold onto for the rest of my days. As an adult I watch my Father teach and nurture all 4 of his grandchildren - the mischievous spark often present in his eye as he loves to play with each of them.
As a family we have an added dose of gratefulness set upon our plates today. As my love journeys home today he does so with a heavy and wounded heart; the worst possible tragedy happened yesterday while setting up for what was to be a sold out show. While we are all feeling grief for the colleague who has lost his life and for those injured I cannot help but feel anxious for the moment when we hold each other as a family once again. I know without a doubt that this father's day has an added layer of meaning one in which we will embrace fully.
Happy Father's Day to all Daddy's!
