Happy Father's Day

I should have had this post up yesterday, but to tell you the truth, I have been having a hard time putting it together. There is just no perfect way for me to express my feelings for the father of my children. He deserves so much more gratitude and praise than I could ever give.

Isn't it amazing how so many men are worried about what kind of dad they will be and then it happens and it becomes like breathing for them?! They fall into a role they never thought possible. There love is unending and they develop a worry and fear about protecting this innocent precious being that has been placed in their care....
Suddenly that expensive fast car is just not as important anymore. Its much more fun and rewarding to have a family barbecue and game night then to go out parting with friends.

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.  Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass."  "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply.  "We're raising boys."  ~Harmon Killebrew

I am in awe of my husband. For someone that didn't have his father around for a good portion of his life, he is a wonderful father.
His love for them and desire for their well being amaze me.

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
