As you know from my prior blogs, I belong to a sorority, Alpha Phi. Our sorority has many events and fundraisers for our philanthropy, women’s cardiac care. Besides all of the supporting we do for our philanthropic research, we also do miscellaneous sisterhood/bonding events, and days to celebrate our caregivers (Parent/Guardian’s Day, Mom’s Day, Dad’s Day, etc., or any other important female or male in our lives).
This Saturday is our Dad’s Day celebration, taking place at Anheuser Busch Brewery, in St. Louis, Missouri. Private tours are booked for the Alpha Phi members and our important men we invited (brothers, grandfathers, dads, etc.). After the tours, a lunch buffet consisting of a meat, cheese, and cracker tray, German potato salad, cheddar pretzel, and barbecue sauce wings with multiple beverages of choice will be served. Besides the exciting venue, I cannot wait to spend the day with my father and brother.
My family has always meant everything to me. The fact that I will have a chance to spend a day with two of the most important male role models in my life, makes me so happy. As the years go by, everyone seems to get busier and busier. Especially with having a small family of four, I am used to being so close and having the chance to see each other often. After going to college and leaving home, I was exposed to what it is like to not to see my family as often as I would like. Although I didn’t think it to be possible to appreciate my family any more than I already did, my love for them grew. I cannot wait for Alpha Phi, Dad’s Day. Let the countdown begin!
