Stunning Strawberries Week 2 --- Father's Day
Thursday, June 12, 2014
For Father's day, we will be busy most of the early part of the day with our normal church services & then DH has to co-officiate a funeral for an elderly church member who passed on yesterday. Then perhaps later in the evening I can take him to his favorite restaurant for a special meal. I already know what he will order as he's so predictable, LOL. ---Prime Rib with a lobster tail on the side, baked potato & salad @ Outback. ( Did I mention, this is my favorite place too!
) . I will call my own dad & speak with him by phone. Currently he is living in SC but he & my mom & younger brother are searching for a place to move back to NC so they will be closer to myself & my 2 other siblings.
I guess the memory that sticks out the most of my father is not one of Father's Day as Daddy was always a hardworking man, never stopping to rest or have fun. But I recall one early morning, Mom had gone to work in the strawberry fields & I was still asleep. I awoke to hearing my father scream for help. When I got out to the field by the house, I learned that he was trying to hook up the disk to the tractor & the disk fell on his foot. My cousin across the street heard the screams & we were able to get Daddy untrapped & to the hospital where he foot was saved.
Not the best memory but one that is definitely still a reminder to cherish each moment.
