New SixContest: We’re swimming in Sixes! Use “swim” in a Six-Word Memoir

Six-Word Search: Dad

From the reams of memoirs on Dads, it’s clear: fathers are important, their impact felt whether present, absent, or no longer with us. At their best, and occasionally, at their worst, fathers have helped shape your worlds. Many Sixers revere their Dads – some traditional, others, unconventional – and reflect on how each has influenced the other’s lives.

With Father’s Day approaching, we take this time to celebrate fatherhood, in all forms and descriptions. Join us and enjoy a few of our favorite Six-Word Memoirs on Dads as we honor all of the exceptional men who touch our lives so profoundly. If your father did not meet the mark, hopefully you know a Dad who has and can think of him today.

Met man, my dad in disguise?
by Mourningdove
My patient was an elderly man.Some thing about him reminded me of my dad. So I took a few minutes while getting vitals to ask him a few questions. Turns out he worked for the same company my dad did before he passed away 13 years ago. I found my self explaining to this man how much he reminded me of my dad, when he thanked me for my care. It was kind of magical in a way. I told him how my dad had not lived to see me graduate nursing school. He took my hand, and told me that he sure my dad would be proud, of the nurse I was. Sniffle.
