Many Good Men

A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. ~Author Unknown

I am blessed with many amazing 'dads' in my life, and am so thankful for each one. 
I am thankful that my birth father, Mark, supported the choice to give me life.  I am thankful for the opportunities he gave me by choosing to place me for adoption.  I am thankful that he has opened his life to me now, so that I can get to know him. 

I am thankful that my father-in-law, Chuck, who taught David the value of hard work, raised him with strong values, and helped shape him in to the man he is today.  I am thankful that he loves my children and that he spends time to play with them and values them. 

I am thankful for my father, Jim, who showed us every day how much he loved my mother and how much he loved us.  He always worked hard to provide for us and made sure we always had everything we needed. , but he also gave us security, affection, his time, and his attention.  I am thankful for his tender heart and his integrity.  I am thankful that no matter what happens, he is always here for us.  He is always the first to visit us in the hospital, the first to lend a hand when we need it, and he never withholds his hugs, kisses, or affection.

Lastly, I am thankful for David.  He is an amazing husband and father. There are so many amazing things  Ilove about him about him and we are so lucky to have him in our lives.  He is generous, loving, kind, gentle, involved in our lives, helpful, supportive, hard-working, dedicated, determined, encouraging, faithful, and the list goes on and on.  He loves God and he loves his family.  Not a day goes by that he doesn't make this apparent to us.  He spoils us, but not with stuff (ok, sometimes with stuff ;)).  He spoils us with his love and with his time, and for that, I am forever grateful.  Every day, I thank God for bringing me David.  A good man is hard to come by, and I have the best!

And, of course, I am thankful for my amazing brothers (and brothers-in-laws) who are are great dads to my nieces and nephews, amazing uncles, and who always have time for us.





Happy Father's Day to all the amazing men our my lives!
