It has been quite the pleasant surprise to notice my feelings on Father’s Day transform over the past few years. After my Dad’s death in 2008, I stopped celebrating. Then, slowly, in the fullness of time I began to celebrate my memories of my father, and other fathers in my life like my Husband who never ceases to amaze me in the way he parents our son.

Still, my Father’s Day will always be more complicated than a simple card and visiting my Dad on a Sunday. Mine has become more about grandparents, uncles, my husband, and how families work together to support children. Plus, the sting of loss underscores the need to pass on Family histories, to record the memories and dreams of the people who are important to us for posterity.

So this year for Father’s Day I’m giving the important dads in my life StoryWorthStoryWorth is a service that emails an interesting question to someone in your life each week, and records their response. This can be done in email or recorded on the phone. Then, at the end of a year I’ll receive all of the responses bound in a beautiful hardcover book. For me, I’m sending the questions to my Mom, who routinely visits my grandfather and records his responses.

There aren’t any cards I’ve found that quite express “Thank you for being my family on Father’s Day.” Nor have I seen one that really sums up the heartfelt appreciation I have for those who act as a Father when someone is passed or absent. Most, even the one I made last year, are centered on BBQ, tools, or cars. So, I made my own.

The image is a vintage map of New York City and the surrounding area, with a cute saying about parental guidance (and backseat drivers!). I think it’ll be just perfect for delivering my StoryWorth gift to my Grandpa, and it will still hold meaning to my Mom who is doing the heavy lifting in visiting him each week to ask the questions.
