I have to follow up my Mother’s Day post with a special tribute to my other half. The man who has held me up, comforted me, served me, been my rock and continually leads me spiritually. The one who is the father to our children, aka daddy!!
The boys love their daddy so much and follow him everywhere when he is home! Wanting to be involved and trying to help out in all of his yard work, gardening, car maintenance and whatever else needs work around the house.
One thing I didn’t realize when we became parents is how much more I would fall in love with my husband seeing him shine as a father. His ever present caring, patient and gentle spirit as he teaches, corrects and plays with the boys.
He’s my sure relief at 5:30. A fresh set of legs energized and ready to chase the boys, tackle, play catch and make them roll on the floor laughing. Not to mention do the dishes after dinner!
When I asked him what he wanted for Father’s Day he said a family gathering for his parents, honoring his own father on the day and his mother who just turned 80. So we celebrated with 25 people at our house.
Even though it was his day to relax, take off and enjoy time with his family he was in the kitchen helping me clean up, do dishes and put the house back in order. He has a servant’s heart.
He may have gritted his teeth a bit in allowing me to post this, but it only reflects his humility!
