|Father Maguire Park in Lowell|
My Dad showed me that raising kids and taking care of a house is an equal partnership. He cooked, cleaned, and did laundry..and when we were big enough, made sure we pitched in too. He taught us that you had to work hard for anything we wanted. He taught me how to pack a suitcase..I can now fit 5 days in a carry-on. He just taught us...whatever he knew, he took the time to teach us.
I watched him get so excited as my little cousins were growing up..taking time to teach them how to turn an old wrapping paper roll into an amazing sword, or use an acorn top to whistle; I watch him now do all the same with my son.
I wish my Dad the best Father's Day ever and love him with all my heart.
