This year's Father's Day, like every Father's Day since 2006, was a little difficult for me. I lost my father that year, when I was a senior in high school. So I have sadness, of course, but I spent much of the day remembering the good times and reflecting on the important lessons my dad taught me (explained in more detail in this diary).

Happy Father's Day to all the great fathers out there. You're all awesome.

How did you spend your Father's Day? Or, if you don't celebrate Father's Day, how was your Sunday?

To close this brief diary, I really enjoyed Michelle's Father's Day message.

From mapamp:

This comment by Sun Dog and this comment by 2thanks were found in jbou's otherwise funny Father's Day diary. In response to these comments, jbou took out the offending joke.
From Julie Gulden:
Every comment in this post by Dante Atkins could be considered a top comment.

I know it's a bit unusual but the comments are all top comments!

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
