I have four men to give tribute to today. First, my Daddy...there's no one like you in all the world. The twinkle in your eyes, your quick wit, your full smile and belly laugh. No one cooks like you - everything you make brings back memories. I love watching you with my kids. Seeing you in the roll of spoiling suits you. I know I have natural instincts in business and I know they come from you. Watching you run your businesses as a child has made me the hard worker I am today. I love you for being my Daddy. The Lord knew what he was doing in choosing you to be my Dad.
Second, my step-dad Wayne...you have filled a totally different roll in my life. Thank you for your kindness towards my family and my mom. I love knowing that you and mom are best friends and always have each others back. Have fun exploring the world together.
Third, my father-in-law Tony...the first time we met Tony and I argued and when we were done I walked in the house and said to Matt, "He's either going to love me or hate me after that conversation!" Later that trip Tony pulled me aside and told me he liked me and he followed it with, "You're different from every other girl Matt has brought home. That either means this relationship won't last or you are the one." His honesty has always been one of my favorite things about him! My sister-in-law wrote an incredible blog about him and his art work...follow this link to read more.
Lastly, my husband Matt...the most incredible Father I know. Watching him with our kids is one of my favorite things. He makes Adriah giddy with excitement and Leyton roll with joy and Clara's face with delight. His love for kids drew me to him. I wanted to marry a Father and I picked an amazing one. Matt works hard and no matter what he's working on he always has time for his kids. Amazing. I chose wisely.
Happy Father's Day!
