Sadly, there are so many people out there who have never known the love of a father. Fatherless homes seem to be more the norm lately than a rarity. I guess, that is why I feel so much gratitude today for being surrounded by amazing fathers.
My two grandfathers are great. Papa Jimmy is smart and witty. He always challenges you to think outside the box. I think he is one of the very few grandfathers I know that can navigate the internet right along with the youngins.
My papa Melvin is a soft-hearted man who has passed along a love of family that is strong and will last for generations. He also passed along a love of ice cream!
Few fathers model the fatherly love of Jesus like my father-in law. He is "slow to anger and abounding in love". He is a picture of patience. Believe me, we've tested it.
There is no other man quite like my Daddy. He has done everything that he could to help us be strong, independent and capable human beings. He has an amazing work ethic. He is one of the very few daddys who can do just about anything a mommy can do. He is an incredible "pee-paw". And he is deeply loved by his family.
And finally, my husband. A man that can say he's sorry even when his wife can't and knowingly looks for the "i'm sorry" in other things. A man who is willing to turn his life upside-down to answer the call of God. A man who has the complete adoration of his three beautiful children. A man who is aware that most important thing he can do for his children is to love their mother completely. I love you.
Happy Father's Day.
