I knew he would be a wonderful father when I met him. He is entering his 26th year of parenthood. His children are blessed, I am blessed and our children's children will be blessed by his presence, leadership, love and guidance. His presence now is precious. His laughter, his playfulness, his relaxed spirit, his time. Most of all, his time. We're holding his time as we never have before.
Fathers. A great dad is a life link.
I write his with my husband in mind as I care for my children. But standing behind me and standing behind my husband are two fathers who only married our mothers and stayed true and blue and served as a third generation of protective, respected fatherly support.
Today I appreciate my father, my husband and all fathers who work to guide, teach, love and protect their progeny. They share the gift of life by enhancing it.
