My Post is a Featured Article on

I had a great privilege to contribute an article to the Mamalode website. The website focus is motherhood and parenting, as well as providing a support network. Their theme for November is MEN, sponsored in partnership with Movember.


I originally wrote this article in celebration of Father’s Day. It’s a tale of a relationship between my dad and I, and its changes and growth through the years of my drinking, and coming to terms with my dad as a human being, imperfect in his own perfect ways.

If you’re not familiar with Mamlode site, here is a description from their About section:

Mamalode has been called “America’s BEST parenting magazine“by Lisa Stone, CEO of BlogHer. We collect the best of the blogosphere, mash it up with MFA programs and mix it with our readers’ killer submissions. And through a little curation, a lot of love for content and design and the wonders of modern motherhood, we deliver Mamalode.

Cruise the website. There are new themes every month filled with stories, poems, playlists, slideshows, reviews and great people. We post three pieces a day, every weekday. And we spend a whole lot of time on facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram and youtube. On weekends, we try to keep the MAMA in mamalode.

    This article brought tears to my eyes. I’m so glad that you had the chance to hear your dad acknowledge and express he was proud of you. I lost my dad 4 years ago, and although he didn’t know the extent of my suffering…I imagine he would be proud of my efforts now. Thank you for sharing:)
