Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Today I found a picture of you and wondered what we would do if you were here.

It's a rainy day so you'd probably want to go out for pancakes. We'd laugh and eat too much.

Today I found a picture of you and wondered what we would talk about if you were here.

You would tell me about your golf game and ask if I'm taking time for myself. You'd slip me some cash and make me promise to spend it on something fun.

Today I found a picture of you and wondered what you'd think if you were here.

You'd be shocked to see all the little ones in this house. You'd be humbled because one bears your name. You'd hug them, laugh at them, and tell them how much they look like their momma.

Today I found a picture of you and wondered what you would teach us if you were here.

Your lessons of generosity and selfless love are taught over and over in this house. The wisdom you gave us is multiplied as we share it with others. Your work was not in vain, your time was not wasted.

Today I found a picture of you and wondered if you'd be proud of me if you were here.
