The Longest Day of the Year!

Posted

Fathers Day, June 21st 2015. I have been somewhat, tongue in cheek, spewing hatred about June 21st for years. After that date, it's all down hill to shorter days. Give me a moment to tell you why, I love June 21st. 

June 21st, 1995 was in fact the LOOOOONGEST day of the year. False labors, lots of waiting, Our Dr. deciding to take the night off, no pain medication for mom and a delivery of a child that was darn near as big as his mother at birth.

It's true, the days do get shorter and time has moved much faster after that magical 21st of June. But I don't lament the passing of  that time, instead I've been a spectator to the wonder that is Riley Duecker. I have been honored to watch my son, learn and discover and challenge and conquer the last 20 years, that whizzed by in the blink of an eye. Like a box of flowers from some far off place, someday's you may not see what you expected, but I'm always awed by the creation. That's my Riley, that's my son. Happy Fathers Day to me, Happy Birthday, son!
