I was fortunate to have been accepted as a son-in-law by two men. Both attended the wedding ceremonies that conferred my legal status with their daughter. Both co-signed significant bank loans to support major investments that financial institutions would not approve without their signatures. Both were avid anglers who taught me how to fish in their favorite lakes. Both were golfers who smiled as I hacked my way on their favorite courses.
Both mean more to me than I can express today. I am grateful for their time in my life.
Today’s haiku: Father-in-Law Day
Here’s to the men that
show up and support their child
and their chosen spouse.
