Father’s Day for some
Filled with deep sadness or pain
Say a prayer for them
In this time of Hallmark sentiment, forgeting the broader world comes with ease. Easily we forget some exist without the joyfully memories of a beloved father. “Father”, for some, triggers fear, pain; a reminder of brutality and anguish.
Others feel the joy tinged with sadness. Whether feeling a father shaped hole in their heart, our the prodigal father, staring down the empty road, his heart beating next to the son sized emptiness.
Let us not forgot the breadth of human experience, the varietals of joy and pain. Such attention brings us into deeper connection. A thing of truest beauty.
