Father's Day

There are three dads in my life. All have such significant roles in my life.
First, there is the dad to my children. Without my husband, I think I would go insane caring for my children. He is a great, great, dad. For him, family comes first. Our kids love him and look to him for guidance, protection, and fun. The above painting is of him guiding my daughter across a river.
Next, there is my husband's dad. I call him dad. He has been the greatest father in law anyone could wish for. He is a significant part of our lives and we are so grateful that he is able to live so close to us and that we are able to see him weekly.
Then, there is my own dad. I love him so much. He has sacrificed so much for my brother and me. He is a quiet man of inner strength. He can also fix anything! When I was young, he even fixed my hair! My friends always said they liked my hair and asked if my mom did it. Nope, it was my dad! As a perfectionist, my pigtails were always perfect. The above painting shows him fixing my daughter's hair.

Happy Father's Day to my dads and to all the other dads out there!
