Next I would like to send a shout out to my dad. He is always there for me, no matter what I need. He has driven across the country with little notice multiple times to help me out. He taught me how to fix my own car, build a proper cabinet, patch drywall, mow, and so much more. My dad let us play with his circuit boards before that sort of "STEM" stuff was cool. And how many dads today would hand their kids wood, nails and hammer and let them build their own playhouse again and again. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing dad that made sure I grew up well-rounded and believing anything is possible.
Last but certainly not least I want to send a shout out to my amazing husband. I could not be living my dream without him. I don't just mean giving me two beautiful kids; though that is the best gift anyone has ever given me. He also makes sure to step up in so many ways with our kids so I can follow my passion and my job in the evenings. He always has my back and most the time has gourmet dinner waiting for me when I return. He is an amazing dad. He has patience when mine is gone. He can be silly at the blink of an eye. He can make us laugh and still hold boundaries to give the girls stability. I can not imagine a better dad for our kids. They are so blessed and I am beyond blessed for him.
I'm grateful beyond words. I'm grateful for every dad out there that makes a positive impact on their kids lives. I'm grateful for dads that are hands on. I'm grateful for my dad, who until nearly five years ago when unmatched in my eyes as the best dad in the world. I'm grateful for all my dad does for me and all he has taught me. I'm grateful for my kids' amazing dad. I'm grateful for the way he raises the bar on how an amazing dad is defined in my eyes. I'm grateful to come home to him every day. I'm grateful for these two amazing dads in my life.
Who re you grateful for this Father's Day? What male role models have shaped you?
May we always remember the blessing of having amazing role models. May we celebrate the lessons we've learned and provide positive, loving lessons for the people in our lives. Have a beautiful day!
