[father’s day]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I understand. I love my Dad, but I did not see much of him as I grew up, so we are not real close. But, fortunately, many different men came along at differnt points in my life and mentored me – even if by accident.

    I struggle as a pastor during these kinds of holidays, because on the one hand, I want to honor dads, and encourage more dads to be good dads. But, on the other hand, it is really painful for many.

    • I have been blessed to have a lot of older guy friends who helped me during tough times and mentored me too. My pastor is one of those, and i can easily say that he's the bestest ever πŸ˜€

      I hear ya about being "between camps"…

  • I too love my dad but he has chosen to be AWOL for the greater part of my life. Finding a card is next to impossible. Don't know what to do about it either. I know my oldest daughter feels the same way about Valentine's Day as you do. Being single it is her least favorite of all. However, I am glad that both my girls are proud that I am their father. That more than makes up for my feelings on that day of feeling like I have missed out on something.

  • I can relate to this too. My dad died 21 years ago and its still hard. Just go on facebook and see the status updates from everyone about how great their dads are and you start to feel a little bit like you were robbed. However painful, I know God has a plan. I'm sure it will be difficult on Mothers day too now that my mom is gone. Really, its so hard to lose both parents. I miss them both. I'm not sure what plans God has for me and sometimes I feel kind of cursed by life, but it must be something…still not sure about that part yet. Good points Zee. πŸ™‚
