Happy Father's Day!

Noble fatherhood gives us a glimpse of the divine attributes of our Father in Heaven~James E Faust

This is still a difficult one for me because my own father is gone. This is my third Father's Day without my dad, and I miss him.

I am grateful for the 29 years I had with my own father.

(I am 7 months pregnant with Bren in this pic, thus the infamous bee stung face.)

And I am grateful for the rest of my life that I get to spend with my sweet husband. He has always taken care of us financially, emotionally, and spiritually. I know it has been hard for him to deal with all of my pregnancies and physical problems that come along with them. And sometimes emotional problems that naturally come with the physical problems. Thanks for being such a trooper! (Hopefully I don't give him a heart attack, and end up raising my 5 children alone. Knock on wood.)

I am also grateful for a supportive Father in Law. He is always willing to help when we need him to. Even if/when that means driving all the way down here from Utah. Usually in the middle of the night.

And I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father that loves me and is here for me no matter what.

(I know this is actually a picture with Jesus, but I thought it was so appropriate with the little children. I love this one.)

Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers who are struggling and trying your best!

(In case you are wondering, yes I stole the graphics and the quote from Lauri again. I think she is getting used to it;) I can't help it if she happens to come up with the perfect stuff before I do!)

3 people know I love comments!:
