Father's Day 2017

By
Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Today is Father's Day 2017 and it was a good day, infact it was not just a good day, it was Father's Day weekend.  This weekend I actually had two Father's Days.

Yesterday my wife,  my youngest son and his wife spent the day with a young man whom we have know for many years.  We have had him, his wife and daughter over to our house for Father's Day in previous years, because his Father live in Florida, and he does not have any family locally.  We did brunch and had a great time visiting.  This will be the last year he and his family will spend Father's Day with us.  They are moving to South Caroline, about an hour from my oldest son who could not be here this year.

To day we when to the High School Graduation for the oldest male child of one of our closest friends.  I watched this young man grow up from birth, and my wife and I consider him, his brother and sister as our grandkids.  So this was a very special day watching Theo graduate from High School and now begin his college career.

Tonight I FaceTimed with my oldest son, his wife, and my gorgeous granddaughter Elizabeth.  They are in Greenville, SC so FaceTime is the next best thing to being there, especially since we get to do it on a widescreen TV set.

I hope the rest of the fathers reading this blog get to spend their Father's Day 2017 in their own special way.  Enjoy it, and appreciate the blessings you are so fortunate to have.

Thanks George, you hit the nail on the head of what it really means to be a father.  They don't have to be your own flesh and blood to feel like your children.  Glad you had a great day.  I did too.

The dads in my family had a delicious meal together at my daughter's house with the other daughter helping to cook. I didn't have to do a thing. Happy Fathers Day to you George.

I'm glad you got to do something good for Father's Day. I don't have anyone in my life to celebrate Father's Day but I have fond memories. May you continue to find ways to stay connected despite the distance and challenges.

Happy belated Father's Day, George Souto

So nice that you got to enjoy two Father's Days, George! I love that your son in Greenville (close to me, by-the-way) got to visit, thanks to technology! And a double-bonus - on a big-screen TV! ;-)

I hope you had a nice father's day.  I got to spend Father's Day with my dad in Dallas - something I usually don't get to do.  My dad likes "dining" not "stuff"  so I booked the private wine room at Ruth's Chris.  I enjoyed the "life experience".

I'm glad you had a nice Father's Day weekend, George. It's great that you were able to visit with your oldest son and Elizabeth on the big screen TV via Facetime. I may have to check into that option with mine soon. Also, it's wonderful you attended Theo's graduation, and that you open your home to friends who don't have family nearby. It's a very generous, giving thing to do.
