Happy Father’s Day! The day to honor the man that created yu. Well, thats a touchy subject for myself, but, I’ve been blessed to have some amazing fathers in my life.
My amazing better half. He is the epitome of what this day represents. He loves our children unconditionally (even the fur babies). He is a perfect example to our girls of what a man, husband, and father should be. He works hard to take care of us. He is the dad that let’s his daughter put a tiara on him, cover him in Disney Princess stickers, put glitter tattoos on him, makeup and hair bows, watches and loves the Disney Princess movies (Brave and Frozen are his favs), plays with the dolls in the castle, will be the horse to ride around the house on. He will play whatever imaginary role he is assigned.
He’s a sucker for a “pwease dad” and a stuck out bottom lip. He makes bath time and hair brushing fun. He may not be perfect at anything else, but he’s got the Daddy role down to a T. And I love him so much for it. Alot of men in our generation just don’t play the Dad part well, or choose not to at all. My heart breaks for those children. I’m so thankful my girls have a good male role model. He’s just amazing.
Next is a man who helped guide me in the right direction to find my husband. A man that showed me everything I knew I wanted one day.
My Grandpa is the strongest man I have ever known. He’s the father figure I was lucky enough to have. He was with me the way my husband is to our kids. He did everything a father should have done, and more. He never had daughters, so I got to be that for him. He helped make me the person I am today and I’ll never have the words to thank him. He taught me to laugh as often as possible and never take things to serious. He is a fighter. He had a massive stroke and was given 6 months to live.. that was 12 years ago. He’s paralyzed and can’t speak but a few words that the average person wouldn’t be able to decipher. And he’ll only do that for certain people. But all his heart, soul, and personality is still as strong as ever. When I walk in the room, he still lights up, he still understands everything I say to him, he will tell me he loves me, he still hugs me like he’ll never let go, he still finds a way to give me his opinions, we still laugh til we cry. I don’t know how much longer I’ll have this, but I’m thankful for every moment. He’s imprinted himself in my heart, and he’ll be there forever even when he’s gone. ♡♡
And my mother. She’s my very best friend, my rock. She has played both parenting roles for me. She has always done everything both parents would do. I didn’t miss out on anything. She made certain of that. If I only end up being half the woman, mother, and wife she is I’ll be golden. She deserves this holiday as much as any dad out there. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.
So whoever it is that has filled that role for yu, make sure and let them know how greatful yu are! Happy Father’s day 🙂
Until next time- Bye Felicia!
