A Father Every Day

When we found out we were expecting Savannah, James' ill mother wept tears of joy. She whispered to me, "James is going to be a wonderful father!" But I already knew that.

My mother-in-law passed away several weeks later, but I know in my heart she is looking down on her son ~ a father of 3 now ~ and can't help but smile as she whispers in my ear, "I told you so."

Happy Fathers' Day to my husband, who was a loving, attentive, and dedicated Black father long before our President made it look cool. ;)
