It was Father's Day last month and many of us fathers, I am sure, received notes of appreciation from our children.
Recently I was in the United States to celebrate my granddaughter's birthday and in Canada for my grandson's graduation from university. All my three children were there and so were three of their own children. These reunions, where the majority of our immediate family members could be together, are rare. They are very precious as my wife and I have lived apart from our children for more than 20 years.
