Good morning, friends!
Father's Day is fast approaching~
For all Daddies who, from behind the scenes, keep their families going:
You are a Daddy who works tirelessly for your family.
You are a Daddy who would love nothing more than a little quiet before you are “there” for your kids, once you walk in the door after an endless day. But you know life is short and childhood is fleeting and their cries of “Daddy, guess what?” are more important than your needs.
You are a Daddy who may, once upon a time, jointly chosen life and then ambivalently but hopefully, given this life away with the prayer that your small soul would grow up happier, better. You may wish, longingly and futilely, to now be a part of this life.
You are a Daddy who is patient when your kids are, well, kids.
You are single Moms who are both Mommy and Daddy to your kids. You do it all. With grace.
You are a Daddy who is building memories which will shine and weave themselves into the brightest of childhood snapshots for your adult children decades from now.
You are a Daddy who is the model of Fatherhood for the future, seen in your children’s eyes. They want to grow up to be “just like Dad.”
You are your child’s heartstrings.
