Father's Day is Here Again!

Father’s Day is here again, and I am so thankful for my husband – also known as “Dad” to our children. He’s a strong man, both physically and emotionally, yet he is also the most tenderhearted in our house at times.


He is a hard worker, working long hours to provide for us, sometimes running on coffee and prayer – facing a to-do list that never ends.

He is the go-to guy for all things broken, whether a Lego project, a bicycle, or a tree house project that needs his touch. In our children’s eyes, Dad can fix anything. J

He shows his love by doing, by caring, and by hard work. It isn’t surprising to find him staying up late in the night, caring for a sick animal, knowing that his alarm will still go off before dawn.

He has always been the first out the door when a neighbor needs help. He has truly been this dad:

"My father didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." Clarence B. Kelland

Today is the day that we celebrate fathers, and I hope that you and your crew take a minute to think about all that Dad does. Sometimes the best gifts are given as life lessons by setting the example - just doing what needs to be done, with love and care and no expectation of thanks.

Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads that we hold near and dear in our hearts!
