we love you too!
any man with the proper working package of course can produce a child but it takes a good decent honest man to be a father, and there are some great ones out there, step dads who've never had children of their own, and they deserve so much more than we could ever give them, so much praise, more than we could ever shower them with
they are awesome and I've known some men who've come into the lives of broken children both in my family and in friends and these men have healed those families and it's amazing.
this fathers day is a special one for me, for us, there is nothing of monetary value I could give my husband to compare or even come close to showing him how much I appreciate all he is and all he means. I saved and saved and got him something he really wanted, something he could utilize for work, and it's just a tablet cost me a decent amount of money but my god I still feel like there's no gift or words to express the gratitude for the things he has done for our family. This year has been so incredibly stressful, I broke down when buying the gift even, because I let him come with as it was an expensive item, and I'm looking at him standing there and all I can think is all you've done, all you've endured, all you've been through for this family this year....and I couldnt speak he is truly a masterpiece to me
he has made the impossible possible, he has made one of my dreams come true and I'm being 100% honest, he made a dream of mine come true. not something small, something I never thought I'd ever ever see come to pass, not something trivial something that brings me to tears thinking about.
he has endured things when most men would flee, he has stuck by my side, he has never let my hand go, and every step we take into the morrow we do it hand in hand with the kids at our ankles.
I push him to be the best he can be, he has the job he has now because I told him he could do it, I believed in him when others didn't. we feed off each other to build each other up and we both have a place in this family, as do our kids but without my husband I'd be an absolute wreck. We've survived being dirt poor, we've gotten through no jobs, no work, no food other than the kids and god dammit we just clung to each other because thats what you do when you love someone!!!!
people who say marriage sucks or marraige doesnt work well you know what ours does!!!! and I love it!!!! aside from my persona online my offline reality is a life filled with love and blessings and lots of laughter. I do feel bad for people who have had failed marriages, some people marry for the wrong reasons, or grow apart I get that, but because yours didnt work doesnt mean every other one wont. Or that you wont in the future find happiness again.
so dads and step dads, hug your kids, treat them right, and know that your kids seek your praise always---give it to them!! they want to make you proud, even if it's by making a nasty mud pie you pretend to eat it and you love it!!! keep your daughters guarded and teach your boys to treat women right, know that walls are thin and they hear everything!! most importantly know that they love you more than you think, love them back....always
happy fathers day to you all, even the guests
AND LADIES---TELL YOUR MEN YOU APPRECIATE THEM, THEN SHOW THEM! THEY NEED TO KNOW FROM TIME TO TIME THAT ALL THEY DO ISNT FOR NOTHING! REMEMBER YOU ARE THEIR ROCK WHETHER THEY ADMIT IT OR NOT AND YOU BE STRONG FOR THEM AND TAKE CARE OF THEM. A GOOD WOMAN WILL IN RETURN HAVE A GOOD MAN BY HER SIDE
And you single dads out there, a word of advice and caution, love your kids and keep your affairs private. It's too much for a child to become attached to something thats only temporary, keep your chin up while looking for love but you keep that line between your quest for happiness and your kids!
