Ways To Celebrate Father’s Day If You Can’t Be With Dad
Things unfortunately will still not be "back to normal" for Father's Day this year. If you can't be with your dad on Sunday, whether it's due to coronavirus, or because he's no longer with us, or any other reason, here are ways to still celebrate him . . .
1. Go to a place he liked or do something you always did together. Like if your dad would always go to a particular park . . . or if you used to go on bike rides together, take some time to do that this weekend.
2. Donate or volunteer your time to charity. If there's a cause or charity that your dad was always passionate about, make a donation or volunteer some of your time to it.
3. Create something in his memory. Such as planting a tree or flowers in your yard or making a plaque you can put somewhere to revisit every Father's Day.
4. Enjoy his favorite food or beverage. If there was a meal your dad would always make on the grill or a certain beer or wine he'd always drink, pay tribute by grilling up what he enjoyed or toasting to him.
5. Reach out to other father figures in your life. Like if your mom has stepped up in place of your dad, call HER on Father's Day. Or reach out to other friends and family members who are dads and let them know you're thinking of them.
6. My Dad always focused on family and keeping the family together...so I will make certain to be in touch with my brother and sisters this weekend.
