Father’s Day Is Meant To Be A Time For Us To Spend Some
Time With Our Dad’s On The Third Sunday In June!   A Time To
Gather The Whole Family Around For A Barbecue And Good Old Family Fun And

Reminiscing About The Old Days When Everyone Was Much Younger And To Retell The Stories We Have About Dad And Ourselves.

Father’s Day Is A Special Day To Share Old Memories With Dad And
To Build New Ones Too, If You Are Blessed To Still Have Your Dad With You.  Be Sure And Take Lots Of Photos And Make New Memories If You Are Among The Lucky Ones!

Some Of Us Have Had Our Dad’s Pass On And Are Now The Family’s Oldest Dad, So Father’s Day Has A Deeper Meaning To Us As We Look Back And Think Of The Last Memory Of Seeing Dad.

Families Are Complicated, Sometimes!  Most People Didn’t Live A Walt Disney Family Life.  Some Don’t Have Warm And Fuzzy Memories.  But Whatever Your Memory I Would Encourage You To Take Today As An Opportunity To Remember And Write Out – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Dad”!

This Wasn’t Meant To Be A Writing Prompt, But Perhaps It’s Not Such
A Bad Idea To Write About Dad.  Take Out A Pen And Paper And Put It Down In Ink, The Old Fashioned Way (Or A Keyboard If You Must).  Close Your Eyes And Relive The Last Moments You Remember Seeing Your Dad And Let Those Images And Feelings Flow Onto The Paper.  Say What Your Heart Needs To Say!  Open Up Your Mind’s Memory Box And Play – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Your Dad”

Let Love And Joy And/Or Forgiveness Flow Over Your Soul!  Give Yourself Permission To Sit Quietly Alone In A Room And Remember, And Then Write It Out So You Will Have It On Record!

Write Out – “The Last Memory I Have Of Seeing Dad”  For Yourself, Your Family And The Rest Of The World!!!!

Happy Father’s Day To You And Yours!!  May It Be A Blessed Day For All!

Please Consider Reblogging This To Your Followers So They Can Have A Chance To Write Out Their Memory And Also Share This Post With Their Followers.

  1. I didn’t know my real dad as he was out of the picture when I was little. However, my Step-Dad was a great man and I would love to remember when I saw him last, a Christmas Day about ten days before he passed away. ‘Dad’s’ don’t have to be blood ties.

  2. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I could not agree more – you have one father, but you can have more than one Dad or Mom!!! So happy you have a great last memory of your Dad. Dad’s or Mom’s don’t have to be blood ties! Amen to that!!

  4. That is a great writing prompt. The last memory of my Dad was on his deathbed , June 15, 2001. I had the honor and privilege to be with him when he took his last breath.

  6. When I think of father’s day I think of the saying, do not judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his footsteps. Being one of four siblings each of us had a different perspective on the man we knew as Dad. I remember hearing my siblings points of view and thinking that that was not who Dad was. So a thought that I’d love to share with my siblings but haven’t would be to realize the person you knew as Dad was doing the best he could where he was at that point in his life. What more could you ask?

    • Thank you so much for sharing your wise and wonderful comment! I can so identify with this too. I related to my stepfather well and his two sons did not. I like your realization! Perhaps, you may find a time to share it with them. Kind of reminds me about chemistry class where they took an element and exposed it to three different solutions of other elements and the reactions went from explosive to mild to none. It takes two to tango!!! I never have seen a Dad 101 in a college catalog??? Thanks again for the great comment.
