~Best Dad's Ever~
There are so many things I could go on and on about my husband, that make him so great. Many things I am sure many of your husbands share! He is a GREAT dad, he is a people person, everybody loves him, he can remember people he barely knows or barely met, he is outgoing, he is easy to please, he is loving and tender, he is affectionate, he is always willing to try new things, he puts the Lord and his family first, I mean the list could go on and on. But it is the things in his life, that I won't share, that have shaped and molded him, that make him incredible!
When Beau and I were dating, as many of you know, he was very persistent. I was dating somebody else at the time, but Beau informed me "Until you are married, you are free game." I am so glad his persistence payed off, because I couldn't imagine my life without this man! Without my children having their amazing father!
Knowing some of the things he went through at a young age, and knowing of his faith to pull through at a young age, is something that touches me deeply! It has affected what kind of father he is, and what kind of husband he is! He is an amazing dad! The kind of dad that rushes to hug his children the second he walks in the door. He is the kind of father who isn't afraid to teach his children about what the world might consider trivial. He is the kind of dad who listens, observes, and teaches. He is the kind of dad that suggests fun things to do together as a family. He is the kind of dad that choses his family over his friends or activities that might not involve his children! He is the kind of father that makes me feel overwhelmed with gratitude every time I see the love he has for his children! He is the kind of dad that isn't afraid to change a diaper, wash hair, give baths, or anything else some men consider "women's work".
I couldn't have chosen a better man! He is the perfect Father! A wonderfult husband and I am forever grateful for his faith and for his love!! Happy Fathers Day Buckets!! I Love you!!
Here are what your children love about you: (In their exact words)
Savanah " When he wrestles with me. When he gets me drinks after wrestling. I love when daddy takes me fishing and when he loves me. He is the best dad and I love him"
Caleb " I dunno why I love daddy I just do. I love when he does races with me. I like when he feeds me breakfast. He teached me to ride my dirtbike good. My favoritest stuff is when he reads to me and hugs me and kisses me. Like things like that ya know?"
Kennedy " Guess what? I luff daddy. Yeah I love him lots. He best friend to me. I luff him lots"
And also to my own Father, Happy Father's Day! You are the best dad a girl could ask for. Your faith in the Lord and persistence in doing and teaching us what is right is so admirable! I appreciate the mornings of gospel study, family prayers, morning breakfast, family hiking/ backpacking, FHE's, family yard work, vacations, and all the things you did to help shape and make our family strong! It is something I incorporate in my own life and in the lives of mine and Beau's children! You are a great man! I am touched every time I think of how selfless and giving you are! I don't know anyone who is as generous as you! Thank you for your example, for your constant faith! I love you so much!!
I also want to wish my Father-in-law, bro-in-laws, grandpa'a and all the other wonderful men who set such good examples to us a Happy Father's Day also! We love all of you and miss you all so much!! Happy Fathers Day!
