No one cried out of frustration. No one whined because they didn’t get to what they wanted to do. No one argued with one another. No one asked the dreaded question, “Are we there yet?” No one got mad at her family because they were getting on her last nerves. Everyone laughed until we cried.…

This past Sunday, we celebrated Father’s Day. The boys and I enjoyed our day with Craig. We took a drive around a lake, laughed, and enjoyed spending time together. My heart hurt, though.
