This was a little bittersweet for me though. There are quite a few kids in my class who either don't know their fathers, they are working in another country to support them or they have passed on. I held one girl named Maria as she cried because her dad passed away last year and this was the first Father's Day she spent with out him.
My heart is hurting right now. I am blessed to not only have my father and step-father but also countless father figures in my life that want the best for me. I was so sad today as the kids explained that they did not want to eat the lunch they had prepared because their fathers weren't here to eat it with them.
I am supposed to be working on group schedules right now but my heart is just so heavy.
