My mother found this card in some of their paperwork and gave it to me. I don’t know what year it was written. I don’t even remember writing it. Daddy was a man who lived life with a purpose and relaxation really wasn’t a part of that. The card actually is not a Fathers Day card but it said what I was trying to say. The author of the card is John Gray.
I do not have to make over the universe ; I have only
To do my job , great or small , and to look often at the trees
And the flowers and the fields , and be friendly with everyone
What I wrote to my father , whose name is Eddie , follows. I am also Eddie.
I couldn’t really find any cards that I liked pertaining to Fathers Day. I got you this one because it seems to me you need it. Take what it says to heart Ed and relax some.The world won’t turn any faster no matter how hard you pedal so just sit back sometimes and enjoy the ride. Life has a got a beautiful view ; all you have to do is take the time to walk to the window.
I love you,
He never did learn to relax until Parkinson’s sat him down. Maybe he knew what was ahead before anyone else. I don’t know.
