I don’t reblog my own stuff often, but today I thought this would be appropriate.
Happy Father’s Day 🙂

Considering the amount of hardship he endured in his younger days, my dad was a remarkably easy-going fellow.

I remember growing up, no matter what the crisis was or how bad things seemed, he was always the one who stayed calm, maintained an even keel and reassured us that things would get better and yes the sun would come up again tomorrow.
