God blessed me with such a wonderful father. I have so many fond memories growing up. The only girl of three children, it wasn’t hard for me to become the apple of my daddy’s eye. He’s taught me so many things in life – how to be independent, how to find humor in everyday life, how to love, how to show kindess to those in need, how to stand behind your family no matter what they do, how to have courage when I was scared to take a risk. He’s supported me through dance lessons, band lessons and art classes. He encouraged me to stick out four years of college when I was so homesick. He drove me an hour and half to doctor’s appointments to help my husband and I fulfill our dream of having children. He taught me how to fish, how make things with wood and other materials and how to set lifelong goals. He still teaches me…all the time. I’ll never stop learning from him.
They say that often times a girl marries someone like her father. I’d say that’s pretty true in my case. God blessed me with such a wonderful husband. He’s such an honest man. He’s smart, he’s witty, he minds his own business, he’s strong, and he’s proved to be such a leader for our small family. I love the way he loves me. He’s the reality to my fantasy. And on top of that, he’s an amazing father to our 3 kids. He wants so much to give them a good life. He teaches them how to be noble and of good character. I don’t know what I would do without him.
To these two amazing men – Happy Father’s Day! I thank God for you!
And to all of you…hope you have a blessed Father’s Day. ♥
