Father’s Day Gift Idea
My Father was one of the most amazing people I ever knew in my life.
When I was little, and when I was an adult, if something was wrong and he told me it would be okay, I believed him and that was that.
When I was 7 months pregnant with my second son, my Father passed away. It was a few days before Father’s Day. It was, in one word, devastating.
All of these years later when I think about my Dad, which is daily, I remember so many wonderful things about him….
his amazing sense of humor,
how strong he was,
how kind he was,
how much he loved the outdoors,
the smell of his cologne,
his love of animals,
and his watch.
He had the coolest watch….it operated via kinetic energy….it was a quality piece…..and my Father loved it.
After he passed away my sister gave the watch to her son and whenever I see my nephew I almost always look for it and remember it on my Dad’s wrist…..
it’s one of those things that lasts….
When I was thinking about Father’s Day and my Dad….I thought about his love and how it was Timeless….and that brought me back to his watch….
I had the opportunity to receive a JORD watch to give as a gift for Father’s Day. The JORD watch I chose was this Dark Sandalwood and Blue Carbon watch. My husband and I decided that my oldest son should have it to celebrate his upcoming graduation.
My son loves it and he and I laugh because we know that if Pap were still alive he would have wanted it and I probably would have ended up getting my Dad one as well….it would have been the perfect Father’s Day gift for him.
