Memories of Father

Father’s day brings back so many memories.  My favorite is making ice cream from scratch with my dad christmas time. I used to spin the handle until I couldn’t turn it anymore then my dad would take over.

To this day that homemade ice cream is the best ice cream I have ever tasted.  Now when I was growing up your parents didn’t say “I love you” all the time like they do now but you knew you were loved by the way they treated you, showed up and supported you.

We had a lot of fun, my dad and I.  Jokes, teasing and just hanging out.  It’s funny but I feel like an orphan even at this age (don’t worry about the number). It’s strange that I no longer have parents but they live on in my heart.  On this father’s day I celebrated by remembering my daddy’s smile and those day of making ice cream with my dad.
