After lunch today, I will be loading up the kidlings and heading home to visit my daddy for Father's Day. I am so blessed to be able to just go home! I am also very blessed with all of the wonderful father's in my life!
First, I am thankful for my heavenly Father. I still can't believe that He loves me enough to have sent His own Son to die for my sins. I can't say that I would willingly sacrifice my own child for the sins of others!
I am thankful for my daddy. Although generally a quiet man, we would have the best conversations when we'd go for evening walks together. Many times it was just me and him--a rarity in a house of 5 children! I'm sure our conversations were often one-sided-- I talked waaaay too much and he listened patiently. He was and still is a living example of what a true Christian should be-- honest, loving, and kind. Daddy, I could never have asked for a better father than you!
I am thankful for my father-in-law. My husband is an only child and was raised by his dad. They were such buddies (and still are)... and man, oh, man did my f-i-l put up with A LOT! heheheee... Honestly, if it wasn't for the amazing love and dedication of my f-i-l, my husband would not be the fine father and husband that he is today! So thank you, dad, for teaching my husband how to be a real man.
And last but not least, I am very thankful for the father of my children-- my beloved husband of almost ten years! I just love to see him play with, talk to and just be with our boys. They eat up all of his attention and totally want to be just like him when they grow up! He is never ever too busy to include them in his plans. He talks to them, teaches them, plays with them, and never ever complains about bringing them with him on errands...He enjoys their company and they bask in his! Thank you, baby for being such a great daddy! It will be a sad (but funny) day when they really do whoop up on you in wrestling!!! I am so glad that you are not letting their childhood slip through your fingers-- riding bikes, burn piles, swimming, CiCi's, Home Depot, the driving range, father/son campout, Pinewood Derby and popcorn... they will always remember and hopefully do the same with their children one day. You're the best, baby!
To all of the father's in my life (and all of you out there in blogland)...
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!
PS This is for all you daddy's out there that are helpful with the babies...my husband included!
