I had very good intentions of getting this up yesterday… but life happens….
My life would be empty without the father’s in it….
I’m so grateful for my Dad. Above picture is of him and my little brother.. I was not quite that fat. He taught me the very best way for keeping kids entertained. Lie on the floor with your eyes closed and your arms outstretched. Have the kids run by. You try to grab them as they run by. Very little energy expended for a tired Mom, lots of energy expended for not tired kids. I will be forever grateful for that little idea. I loved it as a kid. Dad is the calm one among all of us girls. I only remember him getting mad at me once. I always felt like I could ask him absolutely anything, and I did. He is an example of quiet service.
I lucked out when I married this guy. I thought I was prepared when we got married. I had pages of questions I asked him during the deciding process. I know that’s not super romantic, but this is forever we are talking about. I had to know what I was getting into. But as is usually the case, turns out he is better than I thought. Not only can I be most completely myself with him, but so can our kids.
I’m so glad he wants us to come on all of life’s adventures with him.
