My kids totally lucked out.
They have a good dad. A great dad, actually. He has always given his life for them. He’d die for them. But more importantly, he lives for them. He loves them and prays his head off for them. He blesses them with his words and by his actions. He is energized by the house-full of them. And his love for their children? Has multiplied.
When he proposed to me, his first consideration seemed to be that he wanted me to “be the mother” of his children. I realize more than ever, what an honor I was being offered. Because this man? Loves his kids. He doesn’t coddle them and has never just wanted them “to be happy.” He has wanted so much more – they need to be living up to their full I-was-created-for-this potential. That is love.
Happy Father’s Day, babe, and to Tristan, Dave & Rocky, too!
