In purchasing Father's Day cards the other day, I thought I would attempt to avoid an emotional breakdown in the card shop. Last year, being the first year without my paternal grandpa, I began to weep in the store as I habitually pulled out two Father's Day cards for my grandpas. This year I would not have a replay of that scenario. I went into the store, purchased the cards for Rod and left. I was quite proud of myself for avoiding the potentail tears. As I was doing more shopping, I realized that although I avoided being overwhelmed with my emotions, I also avoided purchasing a card for my grandpa who is still alive. Pure brilliance? Almost. Thankfully, cards can be purchased just about anywhere.
