To all the men reading: Happy Father’s Day! Whether you’re a dad, granddad, uncle or step – dad or any other “title”, you play a very important role in the life of a child and that is priceless. I’m sure the special ladies , partners and kids in your lives have been hard at work coming up with a day full of fun things.
I wanted to take a minute for some special men in my life today…
To my cousin Mark ~ You’ve been such a special part of my life. You’ve been there when no one else has and never gave up on me. You always bring a smile to my face and make me feel like I’m the most important person in the room when I’m with you. I hope my boys grow up to be like you – with your drive and passion for life. I wish you only the best and hope we’re able to spend time together very soon. Thank you for being such a special part of my life.
To my Dad ~ I know it’s been several years since we’ve spoken and it breaks my heart. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a “Daddy’s Girl” and loved spending time with you whether it was fixing your truck in the driveway or watching you play video games on the living room floor. I feel like we’re so far into the ditch right now that I don’t know where to start to try and make things “right” again. We have a “one of a kind” relationship…who else is greeted with “Hey heifer” and be happy with that acknowledgement? I’ve prayed many times that we’ll be able to work things out some day and you’ll get to know your amazing grandchildren and see how I’ve turned out. I can safely say that I’ve got your work ethic (so thankful for that!) and a bit of your stubbornness (which comes in handy at times). I hope you’re doing well and I send my love.
To my Husband ~ Our fairy tale is still fairly new and is always changing. I hope we can work over the next year or so to continue on our uphill climb and finally reach “happily ever after”. Thank you for loving my babies so much (despite your initial reaction…) and trying to do what’s best for them. Thank you for taking us to Disney for the first time and allowing me to fall in love with such a special and amazing place. I hope you enjoy all of the fun the boys put together for you this weekend!!
