A commitment to Dad

My dad wants to ride his bicycle everyday . So that means I will be calling him everyday. As kids grow , your parents grow with their own lives. Some talk everyday while others go months without a work to each other. I didn't plan on being the kid that could go months without contact. I know I did not grow up thinking I would be distant from my parents . Life just happened . I started this year with a commitment to myself to understand my reality. To know me is to know , reality for me in the past was a word in the dictionary!

I just got off the phone with him. He is on a mission to get the other deer twin that was just born a few days ago. They take the baby deer early , so they can be bottle fed growing up tame and petable. He will be trying to get the baby before the mom hides it. She has caught on to what my parents do when they come into the deer pen.
I have not done my walk , I'm sure he will call later . I will be talking to him like never before.
