As Father’s Day approaches, we find the world is a much different place. Home offices blur between being places for client zoom calls and pick up indoor basketball games as parents learn how to balance this new way of living. We don’t always succeed, but we are working to make the best of a difficult situation.
Life has changed a lot in the last couple of months. We are no longer going out and doing the things we normally do. We are concerned for our partners who don’t have the same luxury to work from home and are essential employees. We are concerned about our family, friends, and the larger world around us, wondering when will things back to normal.
We are not the only ones affected, though. The youngest members of our families have given up sporting events, graduations, and the normal day-to-day things kids love to do in the world. It can be sad that we are missing out in seeing them enjoy this time in their lives like we were able to when we were young.
But those things will come back. And life will go on and wonderful things will happen.
We will have the chance for new beginnings.
We will celebrate life’s milestones.
So as we enter this Father’s Day, we are hopeful and optimistic because we know that dads and family are here.
So when the world opens back up again, we will be able to savor new adventures and memories that much more.
We wish all dads a happy father’s day and look forward to celebrating (in-person) when we all get to the other side.
