Swedish Father’s Day

The seals are supposed to illustrate the fathers!

It’s Father’s Day in Sweden today! My biological father is long gone and I’ve hardly ever met him. Though I often hear that I look like him and that my body language is exactly like his.

Nevertheless, I have a stepfather who I’ve been close with for many years! He’s always been a friend and a parent, so he’s the one I’m giving a Father’s Day gift today!

    Thanks for your gift at the Father´s day! I am sorry that you could not join the rest of us today as your mum did excellent cooking as usual. I am happy to see that you got The Blog of The Week Award from Lilija which you deserve!

    Love,

    What a touching post. Thank you for giving us a peek into your life.

    I have always believed that one’s family isn’t necessarily the biological relations, but the people who we love and who return that love without questions. I think this is particularly relevant with parenting. A mother/father, in my opinion, is a person who raises you to love and respect yourself and others, a person who helps with your homework, a person who wants nothing but your happiness, who makes you soup when you’re ill, who encourages you to be the best you can be, a person who no matter what, you know will be there just for you. That’s a parent. Happy Father’s Day!

      Milla, thank you so much for your response! It means a lot to me, and I totally agree with you! It takes a lot to be a family, but it doesn’t mean you have to be related. There are many other, more important, aspects.
      Thanks again.
