Happy Father's Day

I'd like to tell you about the father of my children.

When I fell in love with my hubby 16 years ago, I knew without a doubt that I had finally found the one God had saved just for me. Our life together has been eventful, with lots of moves and babies, but always facing it together as a team. On this Father's Day, I'd like to honor him and share all the reasons he is so loved.

He is so patient with me.
He truly tries to empathize with me, even when I KNOW I'm an irrational mess!
He's considerate and always listens (or at least pretends).
He works hard to provide for his family.
He is never critical of me.
He has the most beautiful blue eyes.
He makes us feel safe.
He'll join me in watching Food Network or other such nonsense.
He is dedicated and loyal like no other.
He is appreciative and full of words of affirmation.
He brings out the best in me.
He is a wholly devoted family man in whom we have complete trust.
He is NOT a quitter and is an eternal optimist.
He still makes me laugh, and laughs at my warped sense of humor.
He spends quality time with our kids, playing with them and taking them on doughnut dates nearly every weekend.
Most of all -- He is a man after God's own heart.
We are very blessed. Happy Father's Day, honey -- we love you very much!!
